Exploring the World of Experimental Metal

"Avant-garde metal, experimental metal, or art metal is a subgenre of heavy metal music characterised by the use of innovative, avant-garde elements, large-scale experimentation, and the use of non-standard sounds, instruments, and song structures" -

I've been a fan of several band under these genre of metal music. Bands that I love to listen are Meshuggah, Neurosis, and Dillinger Escape Plan. Each bands has it's own diverse style of "experimental" music. These 3 bands are considered pioneers on these particular scene.

Meshuggah - Rational Gaze

Neurosis - Locust Star

Dillinger Escape Plan - Panasonic Youth
