Three of my absolute favorite metal bands are UneXpect, Whourkr, and Naked City. All three create bizarre, tonally/rhythmically ambiguous pieces of music that are so overstuffed with content, and that fly so breathlessly from theme to theme, that the only approriate response would seem to be a bewildered stare.

Does anybody know of any other music that has this confusing, frenetic kind of feel?

I would suggest Sigh, but you likely already know of them. If not their Imaginary Sonicscape album would be a good place to start.

Couple of things off the top of my head that you may enjoy:

!T.O.O.H!, crazed czech death/grind:
Youtube: show


Youtube: show


Lykathea Aflame, incredible progressive brutal death metal czech again. I wont suggest a track as their album Elvenefris is entirely awesome, though may not be exactly what you want:
Youtube: show


Virulence, strange jazzy death-grind. Cool stuff if you can get over the lofi production:
Youtube: show



Edit: A couple more that maybe would be of interest:
C.S.S.O - Weird Japanese grind
Swarrrm - More weird Japanese grind, latest album Flower is really good.
Contrastic - More strange Czech grind.
Wayd + Brute Chant - Both play strange dm, bizarre but not exactly frenetic but worth a try.

Obvious Sigh and Gorguts mentions. With that out of the way:
The Axis of Perdition is bizarre, frenetic and very disturbing
Gigan; all over the place and awesome
The Meads of Asphodel lots of stuff to take in, quality stuff
Baring Teeth somewhat similar to Gorguts, worth a look if you like them
Jute Gyte is worth a shot, microtones and very odd tempos

That's all off the top of my head, I'll post again if I think of anything noteworthy.

Here's some stuff you might like:

Panthymonium--Unique avant garde death by the guy from Edge of Sanity
Karaboudjan--Also weird avant garde type death stuff by guy from Edge of Sanity
Maudlin of the Well--Very interesting avant garde metal
The Locust--They aren't on here and might not be considered "metal" but they are heavy frenetic power violence stuff you might like
Agoraphobic Nosebleed--I'd be surprised if you don't know them. They are also not on here but I think they are metal. They combine grindcore, noisecore and lots of other stuff and are VERY frenetic
Mr.Bungle---I'd imagine you know them by now
Noisecore Freak--Not a metal band per se but they are really frenetic Noisecore with Grindcore elements I really like
Inferno (Sci-Fi-Grind'n'Roll)--I also really like them and they aren't on here either. They are frenetic Italian Grindcore with elements other styles I can't even really quite pin down.
Heidnik--Not on here either, weird grind core band that didn't release much
Modokian Crest--Also not on here, frenetic cybergrind
Jonny X and The Grodies--I like these guys a lot. They are the only band I know who mixes SYMPHONIC black metal with keyboards with Grindcore. Very crazy shit.
zmajevdah--Also not on here. Crazy cybergrind type shit.
Plebeian Grandstand--Just disovered these guys. They are really good avant-garde black metal that mixes in elements of mathcore and powerviolence.
Child Abuse--Not sure what to call these guys. They aren't actually metal but they are very heavy frenetic electronic music, probably something close to noisecore but I'm not sure that's what genre they should really be put in.

Since you like Whourkr, you might like Alien Crucifixion and Gigantic Brain. As for stuff that is totally bizarre, check out Acid Mothers Temple. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0gPY1K12dis

Wow! That's quite comprehensive. I had indeed heard Sigh, Mr. Bungle, and Lykathea Aflame, but all the rest are new to me. I have many hours of gleefully unsettled listening ahead of me!

Thanks guys!

Seconding Plebeian Grandstand, at its most forceful it gets very, very hectic. I'll also add Pyrrhon, Imperial Triumphant and, just in case, the obvious Deathspell Omega and Fleshgod Apocalypse.
