Atheist is the best anyways.

Some Death is pretty jazzy in the drum parts.

Cynic is okay, if you can handle the production.

Ephel Duath isn't really death metal, but they're fucking crazy. Best jazz/metal combination out there.

how jazzy are you looking

atheist and cynic are the two that are most blatantly jazz influenced
beyond that look into heavier tech metal bands

for instance gorguts are extremely jazzy but its not very obvious

death gorguts immolation

Cynic, Atheist, and later Pestilence, in that order. I'd also strongly recommend Watchtower (thrash/jazz) and Dead Horse (thrash/grindcore/jazz).

Here's the exact order I'd have you go in-

Cynic
Atheist
Watchtower
Dead Horse
Pestilence

There are other similar bands, but the jazz influence is strongly toned down. Do you like Rush? They're a good band to check to check out if you are into heavy, complicated, jazz-based rock.

Spiral Architect is one of (if not) the best death jazz band around.

Yeah, but I told him Rush weren't metal. They are heavy prog rock, with a lot of jazz based riffs and structure. I just figured, since I ran out of metal, there's always Rush, and Rush kicked ass. Not to get off topic, but do you like Rush? Maybe I'll start a Rush post. I'm sure everybody's heard of them, just curious who likes them or not.

The clear answer here is Cynic - Focus. A simply brilliant album, if not a big "out there".

Pestilence is okay, but after listening to Cynic and most Atheist (save Elements), you'll feel cheated.

I never heard anything from Atheist. I read that they're influenced by Rush. If so, I got to check them out.

I'd go for Atheist, Cynic and Gorguts.

Edit: Oi Vey! I forgot Demlich and PsyOpus.

I wouldn't exactly say Necrophagist are jazzy, more classical. they are slightly jazzy I guess.

I'm not sure why you left out Elements. In my opinion it's their best album, and it's certainly the most jazz influenced one. BTW, I really have a feeling the person who started this post would probably like Yattering. There's not much jazz to them, but they are good technical death metal laden with the same chaotic time changes you'd hear from jazz based metal bands like Watchtower or Atheist.

Oh my fucking god!! about time someone agreed with me about Zabek! My favourite drummer for sure.

Edit: Go buy the DVD. Some of the best $50 I ever spent.
