Ok, so here's my recommendation of the week:

Ephel Duath - Pain Necessary to Know

This is a really nice album - very experimental, technical and with freaky Jazz passages. It's quite extreme ... well, it alternates between Dillinger Escape Plan, Sieges Even and pure (non-metal) Jazz improvisation. I'll write a review soon ... but not before the weekend.

In the meantime ... listen to two songs from the album here:

Ephel Duath is awesome

Their album The Painter's Palette is worth a listen too.

Well, I know the full album and I can say that the vocals are not as annoying as on Dillinger Escape Plan albums - they're not all over the place, and blend better into the overall concept. But of course some people will not like this type of vocals regardless of the way which they are implemented.

You can try to listen to some Opeth first to prepare your ears ...

Actually I quite like Opeth, including the vocals. I think they fit very well. I just didn't like the distortion that this particular band use.. well, upon first listen anyway. I'll guess I'll try again

Agreed - would be excellent but for the vox which unfortunately renders it unlistenable to these ears.

I second that

I know them from their Opera demo period and I really loved Adulta Hieme. I also love Phormula.

The Painter's Palette and Pain Necessary to Know are both stunningly original albums, these guys deserve to be better known on here.

I listened to another album by them today:

It's from 2000, and also very nice. They sound differently with every album!

Yeah..... I would really like to make a review of painter's palette but i have the songs only on the computer..... This cd can't be found out there.

This "jazz" metal sound is amazing and I kinda like the extreame vocals ..... I just think that their sound is extreamly original

The Painter's Palette sounds like Crimson 73-74 era...but much heavier.

I disagree... I don't see the conection with KC...

It's more like some Fantomas, some Arcturus and jazz/fusion passages. It's very weird to listen a trumpet in Metal . The drummer is very good too!

I don't think the vocals are that bad... at least they fit the music and sometimes are quite enjoyable.

Anyway. Ephel Duath r00l5!! (Listening The Painter's Palette Planning to do a review... but I'm a very bad writer )

Well, i found that guitar very frippy. Especially in Praha (The Ancient Gold) and the the first minutes of The Picture.

Well... I don't know much of KC (In the Cour of the Crimson King, Islands, Thark [haven't finished listening this one] ). Wait... yeah XD  it does sound frippy in Labyrinthine (Crimson)

my bad

Yep... it's sounds like Fripp in Praha.

^ listen to some newer KC ... might make it easier to see the connection. But of course Ephel Duath are much heavier, and the extreme vocals have nothing to do with any KC aera.
