Now, everybody knows riffs are one of the most important aspects of metal. But what about something that's constantly moving throughout the song, not stopping too long for one riff? Like, I dunno, the metal equivalent of this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2kotK9FNEYU. I guess that explains it for the most it. Although it's pretty hard to avoid it here, I'd prefer it not be an absolute pile of guitar wank.

Thanks for any and all recs.

Yeah, though I generally dislike most of their riffs, Decrepit Birth really fit the bill. Sleep Terror is a bit similar too.

Also check out some Cynic, you might already know them, but it's always a good listen!
(Check both albums, they're awesome!)

the metal equivalent of that absolute pile of saxophone wank is an absolute pile of guitar wank

anyway, blotted science is what you're looking for

also seconding decrepit birth

and necrophagist is an obvious choice as well

Though it's wanky, I still think it's a coherent, listenable song. It's fun, unlike some wank. Thanks for the recs guys, already knew most of them, but I'll check out the ones I don't know shortly.

didn't say there was anything wrong with it - "wank" is just another style that can be done well or badly
