Metaphysics is a subject I've been drawn into recently and I would like to hear some bands that delve into metaphysics lyrically. Scar Symmetry's Holographic Universe's id one album that covers metaphysics themes but that's where it ends for me. I'm primarly looking for good lyrics as opposed to a specific kind of music, although something in the realm of progressive metal would be nice, and is plausible. Metaphysical lyrics in folk metal would be interesting though. :P I'm open to anything in regards to musical qualities really, so just hit me with whatever you've got.
I killed a man 'cause he killed my goat
I put my hands around his throat
He tried to reason with the sky and the clouds
But it didn't matter, 'cause they can't hear a sound


Where's your band?

"Metaphysical" is an incredibly broad term... can you be more specific?

Deathspell Omega popped to mind, although I'm not sure if that's what you're looking for.

The Archives says these:
1. Arvakh
2. Asmodée
3. Avichi
4. Cardinal Sin (Pri)
5. Coma (Ger)
6. Echidna (Grc)
7. Epic of Empyrea
8. Faces of Fear
9. Fractal Point
10. Fused
11. Hexen (US)
12. Mastermind (Mex)
13. Mekong Delta
14. Mon'strum
15. Myrrdin
16. Reverie
17. Spancer
18. Spellcraft (US)
19. The Red Death
20. Vomit Orchestra

...I would also agree with DsO, and add: Enslaved circa "Monumention", Averse Sefira, Dark Millennium (Ger), Emperor, Burzum, etc. Arckanum has made statements suggesting that the lyrics contain metaphysical themes, but the words are indiscypherable.
