I've mentioned him in a few other places so I'll sugest him here
 
He has released 3 albums on http://www.jamendo.com/en/artist/jtbruce , namely Anomalous Material, The Dreamers Paradox and just recently Universica.
His music could be classed as maybe post metal prog. It features both high pitched guitar and and lower distorted riffs with a good deal of synthetic feel and is backed by simple but fitting drums (machine?) and bass.
 
All three albums (more notably dreamer's paradox and universica) have a very progessive (concept) flow through the album. He makes very engaging music although you will have to try and forgive him for his failed atempt at singing and the very confronting sighs from 'bellatrix' on universica (songs all named after suns, finishes with 'sol')
 
His homepage is www.subjectruin.net, although it is in developement and somewhat empty but it does have some of his art which he uses for covers.
 
Hope you all enjoy and feel him a worthwhile addition.
 
P.S. his work is distributed under a creative commons licence i.e. is free as long as you dont profiteer from it, you can make donations on Jamendo.

Lol, distorted guitar and lots of melody sums up well over 100 different genres/sub genres of music.

exactly, also if your going to download Anomalous Material do it from www.subjectruin.net or his last.fm http://www.last.fm/music/JT+Bruce/Anomalous+Material as Jamendo has the tracks alphabetically not in the order he put them in the album, and on a concept album no less. I just noticed after listening to it for over a year.
