Quoted from Rdoyle1978:
Meshuggah lost me after a while, but i am psyched to know somebody else knows Arcturus!
I hadn't heard of Maudlin of the Well
For those that like Steven Wilson, he did a couple tunes on OST, the Jim Mathews/mike portnoy/Kevin Moore band
Funny, I just pulled out Unquestionable Presence yesterday. I love Tony Choy's playing on there (even if he was playing Roger's baselines, and despite him being in a pop band now
The band Pestilence did one amazing album called "Spheres" which is part death metal but mostly jazzy. Really cool and head and shoulders above their other albums.
Finally, Gordian Knot. Hard to find but has one of my favorite guitarists Doing several guest spots: Ron Jarzombek. The self titled Gordian Knot is an absolute masterpiece
Love that Gordian Knot album, second was quite good too.
