Tool, Muse (a little different i know), A Perfect Circle (maynard again, i know).

Unfortunately those are the only bands i know of with that sort of sound.
Any others you might know would be greatly appreciated

Just look into prog metal bands.

Dream Theater, Porcupine Tree, etc.
Send this to you my master...
Here's to getting worse,
hope it kills you faster...
Show me how it hurts to rot from the inside out...
This vigil burns until the day our fires over take you,
Our father we forsake you.
