Check out artists like Steve Vai, Joe Satriani, etc. They usually don't include lyrics with their music (sometimes they do though) and I personally (amongst a lot of other people, haha) really like their music. The genre is quite different compared to All That Remains though, but you still might enjoy it.

Edit: If you like neoclassical shredding, definitely check out Yngwie Malmsteen. I really like "Ship of Fools", it's a cool song.
Yeah

Ocean - John Butler

The most beautiful acoustic guitar instrumental ever.

Or some Andy Timmons: Gone, Electric Gypsy, ...

Or Satriani/Vai/Paul Gilbert/Malmsteen for more technically demanding instrumentals.

Or if you're into blues more; Little Wing by Stevie Ray Vaughn is pretty cool.
#16
Anything off Jeff Loomis' "Zero Order Phase" album. Miles of Machines is my favourite off it and I'm currently working on it myself.
Speed is a by-product of shut the fuck up.
#17
I find myself listening to more and more instrumental music.

Check out Ginjineko on Youtube, one of my favourites.

also Race Wish by Hizaki
#19
Someone mentioned Metallica instrumentals but they forgot To Live is To Die, which is awesome.
#20
altitudes ftw

Seriously, listen to Altitudes by Jason Becker.

Also a lot of Joe Satriani's music is great.
Call me Andrew. It's my name.

Uh, there are a lot of vocals in that song dude. Are you talking about the end of the song? I guess, but that solo is harder than a priest's boner when he sees a little kid.

I would recommend Mountains of Mars by Electric Wizard, Losferwords by Iron Maiden, or Musical Death by Testament. Those are some of my favorite instrumentals.


EDIT: Props to the dude that mentioned Man Made God by In Flames. First instrumental song I learned on guitar, love playing it.

Also, I'm pretty sure throwing out every single instrumental by Satriani and Vai isn't going to help. Just look up those two artists in general.
*A list of all my gear*

Varg/J Mascis/GG Allin are all the same person.

There are two types of people in this world: people who like Bolt Thrower, and people who suck.

Death by diamonds and pearls.

Cacophony's speed metal symphony has some cool instrumentals on it. Intermezzo liberte by Arch Enemy is a pretty sweet instrumental as well, and Stevie Ray Vaughn's cover of Little Wing. As others have said, check out Eric Johnson, Andy Timmons, and maybe even Doug Aldrich and Vinnie Moore

other than the usual metal band or soloist, theres always classical music
#25
Hey shadowz_fall do you mean Regret Not by All That Remains? I don't know any song called Not Regret.

Anyhow, some people have suggested Man Made God by In Flames, I'd second that but I prefer their instrumental Reroute to Remain.

Also, there is an awesome instrumental band you might want to check out called Scale the Summit. Not sure if it's your style, but their songs are just so chill:
Scale the Summit - The Great Planes

Their tabs might be hard to get since they've been taken off UG, but I have the tab book and could get them to. Actually if anyone wants them just message me

thanks for the suggestions, didn't think there were this many instrumentals

Dream Theater has some INSANE instrumentals, REALLY great stuff.
They've also got a LOT of songs that have GREAT instrumental sections aswell.
And after all, you could think of the voice just as an instrument.
To me when I listen to Dream Theater, every instrument feels like the lead at all times.
Rudimentary creatures of blood and flesh. You touch my mind, fumbling in ignorance, incapable of understanding.
You wither, and die. I am eternal, the pinnacle of evolution and existence. I am beyond your comprehension. I am Kurai.

I can't believe this,

nobody has mentioned Scale The Summit or Animals as Leaders!!!

STS makes some of the prettiest stuff I've ever heard, and AAL is just freaking awesome.

+1 to Mahavishnu Orchestra as well.

Yeah well in special UG land chords = noob, scales = intermediate and modes = advanced. Most users are trying to finish the game on hard because then you get the trophies for noob and intermediate difficulties upon completion anyway.

The prolific and phenomenal guitarist Buckethead has, so far, released around 30 solo albums, (and about 100 if you include the albums he has contributed to, which is over 1,000 songs). The vast majority being instrumentals. IMO, if not the greatest, he is one of the greatest guitarists ever so... check him out. His stuff is really fun to learn and play, also.

Not even close, in my opinion.

I really think you should look into Michael Hedges if you're into acousitc instrumentals.
My name is Tom, feel free to use it.

Add Tommy Emmanuel to that list, Lewis and Clarke is a great song.

What the Grunge-haters think is just mindless musical nonsense, in reality is the restoration of the old rule of harmony to not write an entire song in one tonality/key
