Which band would you guys say has the most technical music? A lot of classical composers had extremely technical music, but I'm interested in bands you think are technical, not composers. IMO it would probably be Necrophagist. Psyopus, The Dillinger Escape Plan, Dream Theater, and Wintersun come close.

I want to work in revelations, not just spin silly tales for money.I want to fish as deep down as possible into my own subconscious in the belief that once that far down, everyone will understand because they are the same that far down.

Dream Theater, for sure. I have yet to hear a more technical band.
Gear...
Peavey 5150, Squier, Ibanez RG2EX2, Yamaha F150, Ibanez RT150, MXR noisegate

Necrophagist out of those you listed right there. Oh, gorguts, during the Obscura era. If I could think back to any talented fusion bands, I would, but I can't remember. Fusion and Tech death are generally going to be the mainstay for technicality id say. could be wrong.

Isn't Dragonforce the one that's supposed to have recorded some of the riffs at a low speed, then sped it up to fit the song?

Either Dream Theater, Tool or Rush.

One time I had this chick setting on my lap, sucking on my neck, unbuttoning my pants when one of my friends walked in and ruined the whole thing. To be fair though, she was his girlfriend.

Shoopin' that whoop since before you were born, son.

Spastic Ink and Spiral Architect pretty much blow every band I know of out of the water. Which includes all the bands already listed.

They can play all the riffs up to speed live, so I highly doubt it.

As for technicality, I'd say Dream Theater or Necrophagist.

+1 for Spastic Ink, I would like to see anybody even try to play any material from the Jarzombek brothers. Blotted Science is another of Ron's projects that is well worth checking out.

Dude...DragonForce sounds like they'd be the background music on a Sonic The Hedgehog game....
#22
Between the Buried and Me...

I mean, probably not the most technical by far, but they do have some really technical stuff, plus their constant switch between styles of playing. I'd say they deserve a spot under the technical light.

Spastic Ink is incredibly technical, but I don't think they blow Necrophagist or Psyopus out of the water.

what do you mean by technical?

for dream theater, their songs are really long, and have lots of parts, but is it really that "technical"? i mean, a 10 minute song will have a load of guitar parts, that all are different, and takes forever to memorize, and lotsof keyboards and effects etc, but it is "technical"?

I know of a song that is an hour long and is practically only 3 power chords. Doesn't make it technical.

Pink Floyd maybe?
Although I do enjoy their music a great deal, technically speaking, the musicians in that band were not of extremely notable skill in their instruments, which, I think, has made their fame largely based on the compositional talents, rather than the ability to impress people, which I find to be very admirable.

i agree with BTBAM. Those people amaze me as musicians.

Well, if you had read through, you'd have seen that there are already 2 posts about them, 1 of them being mine. So let's calm down a bit.
