hmmm that's the only one I can think of...
Anyway I find that when heavy bands go arty they produce some of the best albums, or rather albums I like the most. Sometimes these albums are criticized as not being focused because they try to walk the fine line between heavy and arty. I end up liking them more then some more focused albums that try to do the same.
Some of examples of such albums (i am not going to comment on every album)
Vheissu - I think thrice finally find their voice here, the pinnacle of the album imo is The Earth Will Shake.
The Satellite Years Now this is a sad story for me, this is one of the best hardcore albums it managed to be arty without losing much edge, maybe even having more of an edge. …
