Thumpermonkey Live! play a very complex form of crossover prog. It's a mix of indie prog, heavy prog in the vein of The Mars Volta and sometimes tech metal. Very weird.

All of their albums (except the last one) are free avaliable for download

Hello all - thanks for the interest.

Our other guitarist has suggested 'Heavy Art Rock', which I quite like. We were a lot more metal in our youth (at least re: the guitars and drums), but the sound has changed with the recent album.

PS, click below for a video I made for one of our new songs - filled with Aztec demons and polish beer!

Checked the samples out last night, awesome stuff. Might need to pick some up soon, actually.

Definitely support for Xover, or possibly heavy depending on Xover's opinion.
