Question Instrumental only metal?

Anyone know of any good instrumental only metal bands that sound along the line of dream theater, trivium, killswitch engage, sepultra, or pantera,
any suggestions, or multiple would be helpful, and if at all possible list one of the bands previously listed bands that it comes close to
thanks

Eeeerrr, I don't know much instrumental thrash bands, but you might like Blotted Science and LTE if you like Dream Theater.

great suggestion! Michael Angelo Batio, Rusty Cooley, and Tony Macalpine are some pretty great choices for some great Instrumental Metal. I would also check out Behold The Arctopus.

Rusty Cooley is a good bet. He's definantly got a metal vibe to his playing.

Look in the rec thread. Oh and, you might be venturing into Post Rock for instrumental work that is actually good.
