^ +1 on all of those, but particularly Trevor Dunn's trio, which is fantastic.

You should try listening to Zu and Ephel Duath.

I loved Zu, util I saw them live in Israel. One hour of the strongest bass distortion. THROUGHOUT THE ENTIRE SHOW. When it ended my muscles felt tired like I've been working out, because everything was shaking. I still blame the new drummer. It's a shame, because Carboniferous is an absolutely outstanding album, I was just too traumatized to be able to listen to it again.

Matraz is absolutelly seminal when considering jazz metal.

Fredrik Thirdendal`s Special Defects, despite being quite difficult to get one`s hands on, is possibly the best jazz metal album out there.

I am surprised that miRthkon have not been brought up, I think they are pretty much exactly what you are looking for...

Check out this track, then check out their album "Vehicle" (also available for streaming on their bandcamp)

A couple of  recordings voted as the best jazz rock fusion of the 90's, which also are both pretty heavy:
Hellborg Buckethead &Shrieve's acoustic jazz fusion album Octave of The Holy Innocents. Conrad Schrenk's Extravaganza's Save The Robots (imagine Steve Vai with jazz chords  with a  brass rock backing)........

Panzerballett and Morglbl are good places to start, for both the heaviness they introduce into their jazz rock  and the humour both bands have. Only yesterday, listening to Tony Williams Lifetime's 1969 recording Turn It Over and reminded of some early JR heaviness - which must had the jazz-purists then tearing their hair out. Jonas Hellborg Group's e** and the subsequent excellent albums by another heavy Hammond organ & bass band in the form of Niacin, may tick the box -  Elephant9 ditto. Johansson Brothers' albums Fission (with Mike Stern and Shawn Lane each on a couple of tracks) and Heavy Machinery (with Allan Holdsworth). And then of course there is the Canadian band Heavy Metal Jazz Concepts. And some of Mats Morgan Band's output e.g. Live.  Gongzilla - for instance with guest Gary Husband drumming on Thrive gives them a particularly heavy edge.  David Fuiczynski with and without the Screaming Headless Torsos has an original take on heaviness. Then there is the obscure British heavy jazz fusion band Network, that has fincluded some interesting guest players, e.g. Jan Hammer, Jack Bruce, Larry Coryell, Hugh Hopper,  across various of nearly 10 albums.
 
**Same band line up plus vocalist Gary Cooper, known as The Shining Path recorded No Other World, an interesting take on what jazz musicians can do when let loose on heavy death metal - check out the album's title track.

I'd consider those 2 releases, Red especially, to have helped set the template for modern prog metal.

Panzerballet is a fusion trio with some metallic ideas. It's good modern fusion.

Ohm: is better, the first lead guitarist of Megadeth Chris Poland had actually been recruited out of a fusion band to play, and now that he's late middle age does a heavy fusion product that's really good. Their debut album is very good.

Ephel Duath's Painter's Pallette is the best example of fusing modern extreme metal with jazz in a true 50/50 split.

Cynic is hard to categorize, they are a death / space / jazz metal outfit that is just amazing in a sound that really is just their own. Their first album is more death-like, their newest is more ethereal. Their comeback, TRACED IN AIR, I count as one of the best albums ever made.

Toby Driver has many projects and this may be where you find what you're looking for. The first was a full band called Maudlin of the Well and this was actually a full band that Toby led. Now he works within a group called Kayo Dot that is really just a solo project with various helper musicians. This is about as avant as it gets. The first "Choirs of the Eye" and last "Gamma Knife" are the heaviest.

Tosin Abasi's new TRAM project is also amazing.

I could go on but that's probably enough for now.

You are quite a fine person, and I am very fond of you. But you are only quite a little fellow, in a wide world, after all.
