    I see kinda what you saying, but STS has this weird atmosphere to almost all their songs. Makes you feel almost isolated in you own space.

    I agree they have their own thing going, just thought you might enjoy these guys if you're unfamiliar with them.

    they were doing this kind of instrumental prog stuff before it got cool so they are pretty under the radar still for most people.

    Now I only looked at a few pages so I apologise if I missed it, but guys...
    Converge?
    Me and Him Call It Us were pretty unique whilst they were still around, but not remotely well known enough to get any appreciation.

    Other notable mentions: Throats, Swans (not remotely a metal band, but we wouldn't have grindcore without them so we owe them that).

    And if THAT guy gets into metal stuff (we can only hope for it to happen)... things will go pretty amazing.

    I don't know if they've been mentioned yet. But Lykathea Aflame is the most unique metal band I can think of.

    I disagree wholeheartedly with you :p :D How original something is can ONLY be based on on what you've heard before... because I mean, what else do you base originality off? An original thing is something that is very different sounding, but you can only compare what you hear to what you already know... I mean, otherwise you'd be stating that you've heard everything etc...

    And yea that video is fricken insane!!! And thats what I mean, whether something is original or not is entirely based of what you know ^^ I'd never seen guys like that before, so to me, tosin's stuff was completely new :D

    I'd still argue it [Tosin's playing] sounds different, but yea, same technique there :D



    As covered above, the reason I gave Tosin so much credit was simply because I hadn't seen or heard anyone else doing that stuff :) (I have now :D , so I kinda half retract that statement). But yea, it's purely based of what I've listened too.

    In fact, the whole thing is subjective, and all dependent on what music you have listened to before anyway... So...

    IMO :p

    In terms of innovation, only two names come to mind;

    Devin Townsend
    Between The Buried and Me.

    The only band I haven't seen that I would bring up are Katatonia. There might be a handful of doomy/gloomy sounding bands out there but I've never heard any other vocalist quite like Renske. Really pulls it all together into a unique listening experience.

    Also: Van Canto.

    Sounding similar doesn't mean they're not original. And i'm not claiming that every single aspect of their sound is 100% original.

    I'm just saying that, for me, each of those bands brings something original to the table. Just my opinion.

    Also, was it necessary to give me bad rep because I made a joke about a lot of metal bands sounding like Whitechapel in a thread about originality? o_O

    Not sure who you're addressing that last part to, I dunno how to even give someone bad rep, if I misclicked something let me know :scratch:

    And those guys are all decedents of musicians that came before them. Originality varies by degree.

    Meshuggah (my ultimate pick) were influenced by bay area thrash (Metallica, Megadeth, Slayer, Testament, Antrhax, etc) but they sound nothing like those bands.
