Rook- Skinny Puppy is good stuff.  ohGr, who I mentioned before, is ex-Skinny Puppy.  And I remember first hearing about King Missile when the "Detachable Penis" video was on Beavis & Butt-Head.  

Orson- you actually turned me on to Omnium Gatherum in another thread.  I loved that Skyline song and plan to get the album once I get some disposable income.  

And I dig that new Pyramaze song.  I did not like their first album, but I loved Legend of the Bone Carver.  This new stuff is even better.  

I LOVED that Onmyo-Za song!  That intro where it blends modern and traditional instruments was killer.  It totally satisfies my love of metal and of soaring Japanese female vocalists.  I need to put that album on my wishlist.  It's like a Japanese Evanescence or Lacuna Coil, but with less goth and more speed/melodeath.  

I still need to listen to the following:

Insomnium - Ephemeral

The Gentle Storm - Heart Of Amsterdam

Wilderun - The Garden of Fire

Haken - Crystallised

Hm, are you familiar with Daisuke Ishiwatari and the Guilty Gear/Blazblue stuff? It's video game OSTs, not really lyrical, but.. hm.. well it's been entertaining.

Here is a sample.

Of course.  I have both the Japanese and Korean (by the band N.EX.T) Guilty Gear XX soundtracks. 

My favorite of Ishiwatari is "Blue Water, Blue Sky" (May's theme.)  But for Ky's theme, I vastly prefer the Korean version Pillars of the Underworld: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iY6D_BmNrs8

As for Orson's other tracks:

-That Insomnium song Ephemeral doesn't really do anything wrong, but it didn't move me like the Omnium Gatherum or Onmyo-Za songs.  I felt like the vocals were a bit monotone and mixed too low so they lacked oomph. 

- I didn't really like that Gentle Storm song.  It did nothing wrong, but my benchmark band for folk infused death metal is Eluveitie and I'd rather listen to them than Gentle Storm. 

-The Wilderun song was good and I liked the vocalist.  His growls were deep and his cleans were melodic.  Not my favorite of the stuff you recommended, but solid. 

-Haken- Crystallized.  That song was truly epic in every sense of the word.  I heard more variety in those 20 minutes than I have in many 50+ hour games.  I feel like after that song, I need a long nap, it's like a musical food coma. 

My favorites of your recommendations are definitely Onmyo-Za, Omnium Gatherum, and new Pyramaze.

Yeah, I gave you an eclectic list to begin with so I didn't expect everything to mesh for you. Glad to hear you liked that Haken track.

You might also like this track off that EP album:

Oh, and here's one I forgot to add to the list. It's one of the best Soilwork songs I've heard in recent years and has a funny video of an old dude getting down with some hilarious dance moves, hah:

I've never been too big on Soilwork's or In Flames' newer material, but that Soilwork song was neat.  I'd never heard Soilwork that experimental. 

Anyway, a band I kinda discovered on my own during my time with Pool of Thorns is Last Call Chernobyl.  I mainly was interested in them because our band homework was to find cool stage moves to incorporate into our show to make it more exciting.  I know I get bored when I just see the band just standing still, even if their music is killer.  I mean, at least a crappy punk band is jumping around, generating excitement, leaping into the crowd...

Here's a montage of his moves: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NkZnq0XkUNY (I incorporated less intense versions of those kinds of moves into my performance, because I did not want to risk destroying my instruments, and it just naturally fit with the body movements I make anyway when listening intently to heavy music.) 

Here's the song in its entirety: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZETlz50rEb4
