Please give a description of bands you recommend because I have heard Porcupine Tree, and though they are quite good, not at all what I am requesting to get out of this thread.

Other bands that might help you in recommendations...

Stinking Lizaveta
Trephine
Orthrelm
Daughters (just not as hardcore, boring, or stupid)

Please use common sense and stay away from more mainstream bands with proggy tendencies (i.e. Opeth, Porcupine Tree)


EDIT: Haha, I have heard Infidel/castro and they make my head hurt, Colin is a bastard.

Cunty, do you have AIM? I'd really liek to get my hands on some Tarantula Hawk from what I've heard so far.

UNEXPECT. dude.....you cannot..... It's crazy. Ask BassBehemoth. Each song has death vocals, a bassist who stands out as much as the cryptopsy bassist, a violinist who gets A LOT of attention, female vocals, piano......... I can't even take it all in. Their latest album is called "In A Flesh Aquarium"

The Axis Of Perdition: Take the sounds of Silent Hill, add some black metal, add some jazz and various noises and mash them together.This will prepare the listener to take a personal tour through a haunted metal hospital. It's crazy ass shit. Really fucking scary.

Portal: If Death Metal is the soundtrack to a slasher film or zombie flick then Portal is the soundtrack to those German Expressionist Silent Films of the 20's like Friz Lang's Metropolis. Amazing.

I realize my descriptions are vauge but I don't want to ruin the listening experience.

Thats all fucking insane crazy experimental electro industrial black avant garde ambient shit man. Hard to describe.

Also check out TODAY IS THE DAY. Their album, Sadness Will Prevail, is a 2 disc long epic, each disc over 70 minutes, of experimental/industrial/grind type shit which is all about emotions and deception, betrayal, etc. Very nice.

And I couldn't possibly go a thread without mentioning December Wolves right? Their final album, Blasterpiece Theatre, was filled with black/death industrial noise filled to the brim with samples and crazy effects, truly a sonic experience, I still clim that this record has the greatest production job around.

Great album!

I was gonna say Pelican, but they really aren't experimental, just instrumental doom. Same for for teh band Mare.

To DEAD: I don't have AIM, sorry. It fucks up my computer. Try Soulseek to find some Tarantula Hawk, I got one of their cds from there (you can find them all, but I bout the others).

Oh yeah, Kevin Drumm (link?) is also awesome.

He does a lot of noise stuff, but also has random experimental stuff as well. I saw him open for Sunn and Boris in Chicago and it was one of the loudest/bassiest things ever.

Botch maybe? They're one of DEP's main influences. They're earlier material isn't as "out there" as We Are The Romans, but the latter might be worth a spin.

What about The Locust? I personally haven't heard anything by them but I frequently hear and read of them being lumped in with the avant garde set.

I say you just heck out the ORIGINAL avant garde. All the Classical dudes like Cage and Stockhausen and Boulez. Although these guys were composers. Cage's 'Sonatas and Interludes For Prepared Piano' and Boulez' Piano Sonatas are my favourite. These guys were some of the greatest thinkers on music and there is much more to learned from them than just about anyone else in musical history.
