    Jazz Fusion/Death Metal Crossover

    Hi All,

    Just wanted to know if there are bands that play Death Metal but are highly jazz -influenced. I'm not talking about the progressive-death metal bands but bands that are brutally heavy and actually play over complex changes. Like say a cross between Nile and Return to Forever (if that was possible!!). Or are these genres totally incompatible to ever fuse..

    real Jazz-/Extreme-Metal Fusion bands are rare...because the "jazz" term got so overused by all the bands calling themselves "jazz-metal" for playing a break in 7/8 and/or Meshuggah-clones...

    What comes to mind are Ephel Duath for example:

    Fredrik Thordendahl's Sol Niger Within is the one that comes to mind. I could have done with a little more jazz and a little less death on that one, but it's an interesting fusion of the styles.

    I guess Daath kind of applies here. The riffs are pretty straight death metal, but Emil's solos outline some pretty impressive jazzy chord changes.

    Ephel Duath by far. Check out "the painters pallet" for the most jazz inspired stuff. I LOVE that album.
