    [EDM] could somebody please identify this track?

    It's an EDM track, most likely from somewhere in Asia - Proper identification would be much appreciated. Thanks.

    miRthkon - for fans of Zappa, Panzerballett, Estradasphere, SGM, Thinking Plague, etc.

    Basically, if you're a fan of any of the bands in the subject line, you should get this. Even if you only have some vague, passing interest in RIO and/or avant-prog, you should get this anyway. The Zappa influence is probably strongest, but you can also hear Mr. Bungle worship, the quirky...

    Kalisia - for fans of: prog metal that doesn't suck? I don't know.

    Basically, this French band has taken bits and pieces of every single non-crappy prog metal band in existence and proceeded to copy and paste them into some kind of ultra prog metal conglomeration - a 70 minute epic sci-fi song divided into 20 tracks. This might sound like a disaster waiting to...

    Mari Kimura - Polytopia: Music for Violin and Electronics (subharmonic chamber music)

    Spaced Out - for fans of: Buckethead, Primus, and similar fusion.

    Spaced Out - Eponymus II I'll keep this rather short. This album reminds me a little bit of Colonel Claypool's Bucket of Bernie Brains, only without many of the things which made that a mostly average project. In other words, I view Eponymus II as the album that Les Claypool and Buckethead...

    Cloudkicker - for fans of: Textures, Meshuggah, TesseracT, and perhaps Isis

    Cloudkicker is a one-man instrumental project by a certain Ben Sharp from Columbus, Ohio. He has released all of his albums for free @ cloudkicker.uk -. The downloads are available in high quality MP3 and FLAC. Rhythmically, his music reminds me heavily of Nothing and Catch Thirty-Three-era...

    Panzerballett - for fans of metal, jazz, and fusion... or just fusion.

    I was pointed in the direction of this band recently. Following is a review of their first album (not written by me) - Quote: "Panzerballett is a heavy jazz-fusion band from Germany who play an exciting brand of instrumental music that is sure to tickle the fancy of prog, metal, and...

    The Mass

    So I just came across this. It's like John Zorn's most abrasive and spastic jazz, Converge's raging fury, Mr. Bungle's genre-hopping eccentricity, Hella's limber spazz rock, the destructive grind of Discordance Axis, and a screaming saxophone all rolled up into a single entity. Bizzare...

    Electrocution 250 (for fans of progressive/technical metal and cartoons)...

    Take Liquid Tension Experiment and shove them through a dense cartoon filter... add the tongue-in-cheek playfulness of Bumblefoot, the mind-warping speed of Behold... the Arctopus, and the theoretical supremacy of Spastic Ink, and that's basically Electrocution 250's Electric Cartoon Music From...

    SikTh - fans? detractors?

    Ever since I discovered this band - which wasn't too long ago, actually - I've seen their material consistently draw an immense amount of criticism from music fans on all ends of the spectrum. The metalheads think it's an abomination, the 'cores think it's too bizarre, the rockers think it's too...

    Shining - Grindstone (for fans of weird, experimental, and really cool stuff)...

    I've been listening to this one for a while now, and it definitely seems like an early candidate for #1 of 2007. Described loosely as a mix of The Mars Volta, The Mahavishnu Orchestra, and Slayer, Shining's Grindstone is a bizarre and abstract melting pot of frantic jazz-rock progressions...

    Looking for a high-capacity DAP...

    I've been out of the loop in regards to DAP's lately... still using a grayscale 4G iPOD. There isn't anything particularly wrong with it, I'm just at the point where I have to pick and choose what music to take and what music to leave - and I'd really like to have my entire library on there...

    Holy crap.. Cynic back together for 2007 reunion tour!

    http://www.roadrunnerrecords.com/bla...wsitemID=59915 First Atheist, and now Cynic. I honestly never thought this day would come.. what with Sean Reinert claiming that he wanted nothing more to do with metal and the rest of the guys scattered to the four corners of the Earth... Can't...

    Derek Roddy replaced by Charlie Zeleny on Blotted Science, oh my...

    To whoever may care (all one or two of you who are out there lurking), drummer Derek Roddy has opted out of Ron Jarzombek's whacked out metal experiment, Blotted Science, due to lack of time.. and has already been replaced by Charlie Zeleny from Behold... the Arctopus. This is great news for me...

    Gorguts - Obscura ... fans of metal need to listen at least once, preferably twice

    I don't really know where to start with this album. First and foremost, I want to say that in the case of Gorguts, the answer to 'What's in a name?' is - 'absolutely nothing'. Unless you're referring to the name of the album, in which case - 'absolutely everything'. It's death metal...

    I'm at a standstill.. really need new music.

    I had a lengthy list of albums that has been building for around a year now. I've been purchasing albums off of this list, and I've recently come to the realization that I mostly don't want what's left. I feel like I've explored a lot in a relatively short amount of time, and now I'm kinda stuck...

    question for all the Creed haters (and I know there are lots of you..)

    Whenever I see Creed mentioned around here, it's always in the context of unrelenting hatred. No exceptions. Now, I'm not a big fan either.. but do all you guys really think that My Own Prison is that bad of an album? Or are you just referring to their admittedly horrible efforts immediately...

    Blood and Thunder

    I'd just like to say that this song is awesome. Very kinetic and full of energy. Mastodon is great. That is all.

    Out of stock over at Relapse, and who knows how long before I'd actually manage a copy straight from them. They've got a few copies over at Amazon, but people are charging $100+.. Anybody aware of any under-used places that sell this recording?

    Koenjihyakkei - Angherr Shisspa
