I very much enjoy instrumental fusion with touch of metal, similar but not limited to:
4Front
Mindflowers
Planet X
Johansson brothers projects (esp. Heavy machinery)
Zeroesque
Matalex (Jazz grunge)
Gordian Knot
LTE 

recent discovery: Marco Sfogli/Alex Argento band (song starts from 0:53)
this is fantastic. 


what else would you recommend, with similar approach: heavy rhythm section, mix of fast and slow sections, trades between guitar and keyboard solos

Jean-Luc Ponty - A Taste For Passion. As ‘smooth’ and technical the playing is, there’s an element of heavy to it, especially with the rhythm section - double-kick drumming is always ‘heavy’ to my ears !!

There is no act more pretentious and self-indulgent than labeling another's art as pretentious and self-indulgent.

^Marco RULES. That guy's playing is interdimensional.

Guthrie Govan "Erotic Cakes" immediately comes to mind:

Jazz fusion all day, baby.

Ooooh, how could I forget the German guys - Panzerballett. A very unconventional meeting of Extreme Metal and Fusion. Takes some adjusting to, but very cool nevertheless.

7 For 4: German jazz-fusion/prog. metal
Citriniti: from Italy
Spaced Out: Antoine Fafard's old band. He's produced 5 suberb solo albums since but not as heavy as Spaced Out.
Niacin: fabulous fast and furious fusion. Heavy but not in the vein of prog. metal.
Counter World Experience: another German jazz-fusion/prog. metal band

Spaced Out is superb! Only this album I have - heavy and atmospheric at the same time

Some of Satriani's repertoire fits the bill. I watched a Satch concert taped at the Iridium. His backup band was the definition of "heavyweight": Bryan Beller on bass, Marco Minneman on drums, and Mike Keneally on keyboards and guitar! 

Check out Joe's album Unstoppable Momentum.

I would check out Passport ( Klaus Doldinger)
Early 70’s album Cross Collateral and Hand Made
Not guitar heavy but heavy sax and spacey keys
Really rocks some intense songs as well as space jams

Also more well known Billy Cobhams Spectrum with Tommy Bolin which is a classic if you are not familiar with it.https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=1H4gfJaYqZY

How 'bout Special Providence (from Hungary)...


Or Intervals (from Canada)...


Both are Jazz/Rock/Metal fusion oriented.
