    I've only discovered this band quite recently, and although I don't like every single song of theirs — I'm not really into the djent stuff — the vast majority of it is really, really good. They are officially described as a progressive metal band, but they include so many different styles and influences in their music that it can easily be regarded as a new generation of world music.

    They're a three-piece band: guitarists Tosin Abasi and Javier Reyes, both playing eight-string guitars, and drummer Matt Garstka. There's no bass player or vocalist. They do feature keyboards and other instruments — e.g. a kalimba — in most of their recordings but I don't know which band members play those.

    Up until recently, I was in agreement with modwiz that from the 1990s on, music started turning into a kind of GMO. By the late 1990s, guitar solos were even considered as taboo as smoking on camera. Even Metallica did an album in which there were no guitar solos in any of their songs. But then I heard these guys.

    Jimi Hendrix was a revolutionary in terms guitar playing, and then came along Eddie Van Halen, Joe Satriani, Steve Vai, Paul Gilbert and other wizards like that, who took the art of playing the electric guitar to a whole other level. And now there's Tosin and Javier, and they're taking it to another universe.

    They're British?

    The music that comes from such a relatively small place always amazes me...

    This was hitting my funny bone, guys
    Whatever is true. Whatever is noble. Whatever is right. Whatever is lovely. Whatever is admirable. Anything of excellence and worthy of praise. Dwell on these things. Jesus Christ (I agree)

    Also already posted elsewhere earlier, but these guys are also very good. Not as eclectic as Animals As Leaders — even though they were decisively more metal-oriented at the start of their career — but there's still some overlap in influences, and their guitar solos do tend to grab you by the throat.
