    Big fan of the current scifi addiction of metal, looking to check out some cool new soundscapes.


    Bands I love that are scifi themed:

    Voivod
    Vektor
    Hoth
    Equipoise
    Alkaloid
    Crystal Age
    Nocturnus AD
    Obliveon
    Inanimate Existence
    The Beast of Nod
    Martyr
    Nucleus
    Artificial Brain
    Slugdge
    Xoth
    Vexovoid


    Lyrical themes are fine, and the weirder the better. Bonus points for full out concept albums.

    Seems unnecessary to say, but why isn't Scar Symmetry in your list?

    You ever listen to Darkspace?

    I like Darkspace II best.


    Also, can't forget Arcturus!

    :agreed:



    Keldian:


    Luca Turilli's solo album Prophet of the Last Eclipse is one of my fav sci-fi themed musical albums:



    Newer Rhapsody of Fire but I don't think thats any good.

    Exotype:

    Definitely not my jam, not really into that stuff. I'll keep my reasons why to myself, but not a fan of that stuff.

    That new Revocation was so fuckin good.

    Origin I have a love hate with, some of their stuff I can't get through, some is pretty good. Gonna look into those others since they match the criteria quite well.



    Ah, thanks but not my thing. Little too much power metal, and then straight djent. Two things I can't really get into. I appreciate the work put into what everyone writes, I just don't dig it personally.

    Time Ghoul is so fucking solid, man :yesway:


    I dig me some Darkspace!

    +1 for mentioning Xoth! I NEVER see anyone mention them but they're so fucking good! Invasion of the Tentacube rips from start to finish. Not sure if this'll matter to you but David, the main guy behind Vektor, is a wife beating shit bag. Learning that really soured my enjoyment of the music.

    Alrakis


    Dargar


    Wormed


    Demon Goat (the music is MUCH better than the name might imply)
    https://demongoat.bandcamp.com/album/bitrot

    La Torture Des Tenebres
    https://greymatternoise.bandcamp.com/album/choirs-of-emptiness

    Cosmic Reef Temple
    https://cosmicreeftemple.bandcamp.com/album/age-of-the-spaceborn

    There's more I could link but I'll leave it at these for now.

    Oh man, "The Scream that Tore the Sky" is so damn good. I remember thinking it was like Enslaved meets Spiral Architect or something. I haven't heard it in YEARS. I know what I'm listening to tonight!

    Alex Jones Prison Planet is amazing. Something so silly has no right being that good.

    I opened that Exotype and that's all I heard, randomly spaced open notes on an 8 string :shrug:
