"Space rockers get more aggressive/metal/Crimson-ish on most recent album - you've got to love the none-more-goth artwork."

"From the man who gave Meshuggah their Sonny Sharrock-style solos. Much more complex and freeform than Meshuggah - moves from structured progmetal to Zorn-ish grinding improv workouts."

"Orthrelm in minimalist guitar symphony mode. Actually not as like Glenn Branca as you'd think...."

"First album from this neo-RIO/avant prog 5 piece - mixture of composition and improv. Later albums more composed and even better - but not available on Amazon."

"This probably sounds like it's going to be a more mainstream post rock type thing - but might give it a go....."

Nekropolis 2

"Alternates between Branca-ish minimalist (often microtonal) guitar pieces and Kluster/TG-style beats+spacey FX numbers. 2nd generation Krautrock. Early 80's."

"I prefer the more dry/intimate studio sound of 'The Ascension' (where you can really hear the harmonies, rather than just a general cloud of sound) - but still impressive stuff."
Blind Idiot God

"Legendary and influential act combining progmetal and dub soundscapes. Apparently said about Slayer: 'Great intensity, boring chords'. Anyone reading this probably in complete agreement...."
