    This is a tough one since I feel I take influence from all music I enjoy. However, a few bands stand out as being hugely influential:

    Fear Factory - Hearing Demanufacture for the first time was an absolute game changer for me, that machine gun riffing style blew me away the first time I heard it.

    Pantera - For the riffs of course

    SikTh - Not so much stylistically, but changed my whole approach of how to create music

    Opeth/Porcupine Tree/Deftones - The importance of atmosphere
