"Weird" being a key word. I'm not interested in metal bands with a jazzy edge, prog metal, or experimental groups that don't really know what they're doing. I'm looking for really weird, whacky, "out there" bands that are difficult to label and defy convention. Here's a few examples of bands that really get my motor running:

Mr. Bungle
Darth Vegas
Pan-Thy-Monium
Celtic Frost (early days)
Naked City
The Flying Luttenbachers
Godflesh
Gnaw Their Tongues
Painkiller
Dog Fashion Disco

Give "Department of Apocalyptic Affairs" by Fleurety a try.

I take it you know Polkadot Cadaver.

You could also try some later-era Captain Beefheart.

You need to check out Oxbow dude. A completely demented whacked out amalgamation of the Melvins and Soundgarden.

On the Godflesh lines, Author and Punisher could be up your street, as could Necro Deathmort, and the various other Broadrick projects (JK Flesh, Greymachine etc). Also Jute Gyte is a good shout - it's Black Metal, but microtonal and discordant and wrong. there's plenty of other stuff that goes into very mad territory, but it depends how far you want to drift from 'conventional' musicality. Boredoms are a worth a look as well (Eye's worked with John zorn and Naked city on various occasions), as is Melt Banana and Beauty Pageant. Oh and Khanate and Gnaw

Then there's my Drone/Noise things (if that stuff's applicable there's loads more I can suggest):
