The new T.R.A.M album is pretty good. Hmmm how about Athiest's 'Unquestionable Presence'?
Fritillaria - 17.04.2012 at 17:48  
So what about Diablo Swing Orchestra ? !
Fritillaria - 17.04.2012 at 17:49  
And also Madder Mortem.
Urs Blank - 17.04.2012 at 18:00  
I suggest you give Panzerballett and Karcius a try.
theFIST - 17.04.2012 at 19:10

t.r.a.m.'s lingua franca is a pure jazz album, not metal

i have albums of both...havent listened to them yet, but will put em in my playlist;)
zarahuztra - 17.04.2012 at 20:00  
I could put Pat Methenys Roots of Coincidence from his 1997 album Imaginary Day in the mix, but its not all metal/jazz fusion, but also contains drum n bass and ambient elements. really good song from an amazing album:D and the rest of the songs on that album is not metal at all.
BloodTears - 17.04.2012 at 20:56  
Interesting list.
PocketMetal - 17.04.2012 at 21:13  
Nice list .

zarahuztra - 17.04.2012 at 21:14  
Not sure if i should put death n atheist in the list. even though they got jazz elements in their music, i dont consider them jazz/metal bands

I might be stretching what your looking for in terms of Jazz Metal, but Mr.Bungle's Disco Violente has a good amount of jazz moments (although I'd be surprised if you never heard it considering your love of Faith No More).

You mean Disco Volante, right?
Anyway you're right there are undoubtedly some jazz moments on it. But so much more I wouldn't confine it to Jazz Metal.

Nosurper - 18.04.2012 at 00:03

i could of course add technical metal band to the list, but they just got jazz elements in their music. i dont think they have that fine balance, where the metal n the jazz fuse together...
same w prog metal bands like to-mera and aghora.
spastic ink, zu, intronaut i dont know. maybe. have to relisten. meshuggah?
rest of the list..tx for tips:D
Unhealer - 18.04.2012 at 06:10

Oh, and it's "Gordian", knot "Gordion".

Its a jazz fusion album but I suppose it owes far less to the metal side of things than those you have in your list.

How about Trioscapes?

Not much metal in there I suppose, but it's a side project from the bassist of Between the Buried and Me.
Urs Blank - 23.04.2012 at 23:49  
Try also Special Providence.
zarahuztra - 24.04.2012 at 13:56

I think Andromeda have a jazzy sound as well, check out their song "Chameleon Carnival"
