Experimental metal, also known as avant-garde metal or avant-metal, is a subgenre of heavy metal music loosely defined by use of experimentation and characterized by the use of innovative, avant-garde elements, large-scale experimentation, and the use of non-standard and unconventional sounds, instruments, song structures, playing styles, and vocal techniques. It evolved out of progressive rock, jazz fusion, and extreme metal, particularly death metal and black metal. Some local scenes include Los Angeles and the San Francisco Bay Area in the United States, Oslo in Norway, and Tokyo in Japan.

    Joke of a tag, artsiest metal band is actually Dark Millennium, and this is just a disgrace to that. Shame on all taggers. They deserve to be wet willied and de-pantsed whenever they have the rare curiosity of going outside.

    I agree with Slaything. And I think you could even put (the old) Cryptopsy here. But I won't tag them this way, because I hate those artcore/art metal tags.
