I've always preferred 3 chords and the truth, but today I'm looking for any metal song (any genre, whether it be thrash, doom, death, black, progressive, heavy, buttcore, etc.) that is so stupidly complex that it should be offensive that it even exists.

Complex= extreme time changes, solos that don't even sound put together, mathematical formulas used to generate an algorithm that could only pass for music if fed to a year 3000 post-human, things like that.

PS= The worse and more ridiculous, the better!

Is Obscura too obvious? One of my favorite 'technical' bands right now is Allegaeon you could check them out if you haven't heard of them before. Or you could just go listen to some mathcore.

Dillinger Escape Plan is beautiful. So utterly chaotic it doesn't even make sense.

the most "technical for technical's sake" band that i know is Psyopus, you can try their album "Bad senses",
its full of random sweeping, eight finger tapping, strange slides, fast as fuck drum rolls, totally random tempo changes..
i don't really like it, but it's very ridicolous!
Behold... the arctopus follows a similar musical path, but they are (a littlle) more listenable

you may also dig the brutal death bands that use lots of sweeps, like Viraemia, Monumental torment and Brain Drill,
they are like the metal equivalent of pinball music: absurdly fast and incredibly technical, but random and very obnoxious
(though viraemia is better than the other two)

Brain Drill, Rings of Saturn, Viraemia. They're just stupidly technical, to the point of noise sometimes. It's not for me but other people like it.

Not a fan of the stupidly technical guitar wankery bands but there are bands that do that.

Wormed's first album probably fits the bill. Really technical brutal death.

Beneath the Massacre is another death metal band along the lines of Brain Drill and Monumental Torment with tons of noodling.

Dragonforce, you may know already but they got famous after being on guitar hero. They are really fast power metal with videogame sounds.

I also recommend using the similar artists tab on the pages of bands mentioned in this thread. Should find a bunch.

And for some instrumental stuff try Liquid Tension Experiment, and Spiral Architect.

Barring Teeth have taken Gorguts' Obscura to the next level. One of the most obnoxious technical bands out there.

Before all there was technical death, there was HellWitch. Maybe more death thrash in parts, but they definitely had a lean toward some of those crazy fast, progressive riffs that really caught on in the last decade.

Anomalous is pretty much the peak of the mountain of technical death metal, and it has soul....


.....and Orgone are one of the only bands I would ever place next to Anomalous in ability to combine tech and songwriting

Wow, that's a gaggle of complete aural unpleasantness.

I think the winner is Psyopus (not really metal, though.)

Maybe not as out there as some of the stuff mentioned above, but Desecravity is definitely worth checking out.
