Love 'em. Probably closer to avant-garde than ED and some of the other bands mentioned in this thread, if only for their occasional free jazz elements.

The only album I've heard from Ephel Duath is Pain Necessary to Know. I think it's a great album. And actually, I think what might define ED as Avant-Garde would be their own moments of free jazz along with an underlying current of jazz with some strange electronic instrumentation enveloped.

Yakuza, yeah. Those guys are ****in' explosive live, and their use of saxophone-heavy slow jazz parts really remind me of David Lynch films.

Jackhammer was the one to introduce me to Ephel Duath with Pain Necessary To Know and yeah I'm with you, it's an absolute stellar album. I still think Arcturus created one of the best Avant-Garde metal albums with The Sham Mirrors

Has anybody here heard a band called Naked City? They were recommended to me by a guy who caught one of my band's live shows. I still haven't gotten around to finding their stuff, and the speakers on my computer are dead. I'm just fishing for opinions.

Hahaha, yep, precisely! That band is damn awesome. I really want to see 'em again, the 7 of them ripping it up is a sight to see, especially on a small stage.


On Ephel Duath - I loved that band, until the latest album came out. I'll always be into their earlier work, but I just like to pretend that Through My Dog's Eyes doesn't exist.

Anything Mike Patton touches is gold. Mr. Bungle was amazing.

I've always liked Ephel Duath's The Painter's Palette. Praha is all kinds of genius.
