Really?Big%20smile 
 
When I saw them on their most recent tour, they played in some guys' basement.  Just a couple dozen of us down there.  This "venue" was called the Avant Gentleman's Lounge. LOL

I stumbled over them during my search for brainy avant/tech/thrash metal, but have yet to really check them out. I've heard a couple of songs by them and they were awesome so I will get some albums of them sometime!

If you like Psyopus try Spiketrain (who write in free-time).  This music is nuts!

My friend that takes a liking to The Dillinger Escape Plan, as do I, recommended these guys too. I like PsyOpus better though .

Sure.  LOL
 
BTW,  it boggles my mind that a band this talented is STILL playing to audiences of less than 30 people. Angry  Outrageous I say.

Losing his sponsorship because of his aggressive playing style??? Yes, that is quite a compliment!!!  If it's true. Wink 
 
Too funny!  I mean, how many people listen to Psyopus anyway?  And out of those people, how many decided to purchase an Ibanez after hearing him play?  He is amazing, but it's not like he's some high profile and widely influential player. LOL.
 
Great band. Clap

I just listened to their stuff on Myspace.  Pretty awesome.  A lot better than I was expecting it to be.

Their new album "Our Puzzling Encounters Consisered" is far more dymanic and progressive than "Ideas of Reference".

PsyOpus is too relentless and monotonous for me. I've heard the Ideas of Reference album, which is my reference for that statement. I don't knw any other works of theirs.

I've heard of them. They're a bit harder to get into than what I though, plus I haven't listened to the album I have from the very oftenly. I remember discovering them by reading why he lost his guitar sponsorship. I'm still curious how he does it.

That's true, but Hella is the only thing close to Psyopus that I have listened to.
Quote Do you prefer Behold ...The Arctopus over Psyopus?  I think that's a better comparison and you might like Behold ..The Arctopus because of their vocallessness.
I like them better, but it still seems to me to be more guitar technical w**king. From what I've heard, it seems as if they're just playing scales and stuff as fast as humanly possible. Hella doesn't seem to do that (and if they are, the amazing drummer makes it appear as if they are not :P ).

Their debut is on eMusic, and both their albums are on Amazon for a good price.
 
From what I've heard, I greatly prefer Hella. Hella just seems more creative--and they don't have that annoying generic screamer. The Eye is the only screamer that I can really tolerate because he's more inventive, but even he gets tiresome fairly quickly.
