I've tossed it back to the METAL team, I'm expecting a move to usbut I haven't listened to the whole album yet, so I can be wrong

Oh I think Igorrr is certainly coming back to us, seems like a fit on first listen.

Igorrr's been rejected in RIO / Avant Team previously, so they need three unanimous "YES" votes via their recent album. Now checking ...

EDIT: Now under eval in Metal Team.

After I heard some Aphex Twin I went after more inside the IDM scene. Given that I always liked Drum and Bass I became really interested in this IDM subgenre that they call "Drill n Bass" and the derived genre Breakcore, and eventually found Igorrr.

And that is why I think the most similar artist we have here is Squarepusher. He basically makes IDM, most notably Drill, with jazz/rock referentials. Igorrr does IDM, mostly breakcore, with metal referentials.

To find them listed here was a big coincidence, since I never thought of them as prog rockers. Nevertheless I think both are very fair additions, since more than set structures and aesthetics Prog Rock is about trying different things with Rock.

Two problems:
- Squarepusher had his place in the Jazz Rock section, Igorrr on the other hand won't have such an easy classification at PA (I'd agree with something more broad such as xover, eclectic or even avantgarde). but since they are primarily electronica producers, by my analogy they'd be Electronic Prog - they just dont have anything to do with the Electronic Prog tradition, but they are one and the other.
- Both sample music, but Squarepusher's is organic - he samples his own playing. One could say that Igorrr is just a IDM producer that likes to sample metal.

edit: nevermind, drums and guitars are his work (vocals might be too)

In my country Igorrrr is a very popular artist and accepted as prog rock (Germany). At least on this site:

http://babyblaue-seiten.de/album_16819.html


Any one of you know them xD ?

Igorrr has to be in my top 5 prog artists, Hallelujah is a prog masterpiece if you ask me. I don't understand why they aren't in the prog archives yet, they are most certainly prog, I can't think of any other genre they could be.

Because we can't make our mind if they belong in Prog Metal or Eclectic or not  at all here. For me, I would give them a Yes at least in the Prog Archives.

I'm not an expert but i would go with Avant-Prog
Definitely difficult to classify, but i find Igorrr a lot more alike to Naked City than to King Crimson.
Igorrr is extremely experimental, not dissonant but unpredictable and very eclectic.
Personally i feel like it is a band that totally belong here

It has to be a Metal Inclusion, because it is definitely metal; Death Metal blast beats and metal riffs are the base of the music also metal base and chords very often, so I dont see why it should be anything else than metal. But definitely Experimental Metal like whourkr (also one of igorrrs projects)

edit: sorry for the second base... makes it seem stupid huh? xD.

edit: plus a lot of growls. metal is really a constant part in his music i think.

edit: only listened the new one, btw ...

I think that probably it would fit in the experimental/post-metal category, definetely experimental, and, like the guy said the metal elements are always there.
Being a really dificult one to classify I think experimental is the best way to describe it. It also has Its elements of avant-garde like bands that are in this category: maudlin of the well and sight to put some examples.

Correct, back in 2013, they have since released another album which makes them available for reconsideration, we'd need 3 YES' to approve them on that basis. My suggestion is see if Experimental Metal accept them, if not the Avant team will relook at them.

I think I should add this band to stop the eternal debate since they have a large discography who else is going to add this on PA. Experimental/Post-Metal is the best fit.  I will submit the band again.
