A while before I joined, I started heavily getting into bands like Death, Cynic, Atheist etc and thought, hmm i'll try be more original and draw influence from bands like this plus other music I love and mix it in with thrash influenced riffage. I showed some of my songs to the band I eventually joined(the one im in now) and they loved the stuff I'd written. So we basically use the other guitarists more straight forward stuff, some of my straight forward stuff with a bit of tech parts, and some of my more tech/experimental thrash.

Maybe if you started blending the two it wouldn't seem so odd. I don't see it being that difficult to use both styles and making your own out of them.
