This is a list of avant-garde metal artists, regional scenes, and record labels. Avant-garde metal or avant-metal, also known as experimental metal, is a subgenre of heavy metal music loosely defined by use of experimentation and characterized by the use of innovative, avant-garde elements, large-scale experimentation, and the use of non-standard and unconventional sounds, instruments, song structures, playing styles, and vocal techniques. It evolved out of progressive rock and various forms of metal, including extreme metal, particularly death metal and black metal. Some early examples are the King Crimson releases Larks' Tongues in Aspic and Red in 1973 and 1974 respectively,[1] and the 1976 Led Zeppelin album Presence.[2] The genre emerged in the early 1980s through the efforts of bands such as Celtic Frost, who pioneered the genre.[3] Other pioneers of avant-garde metal include Boris,[4] Earth,[5] Helmet,[6] maudlin of the Well,[7] Neurosis,[8] Sunn O))),[9] and Voivod.[3] In the late 1990s, Misanthropy Records emerged as a promoter of Norwegian avant-garde metal until it folded in 2000,[10] and, according to Jeff Wagner, in the late 1990s and early 2000s, a so-called "new wave of avant-garde metal" was spearheaded by The End Records.[10] Some other record labels which promote avant-garde metal are Aurora Borealis,[11] The Flenser,[12] Holy Records,[13] Hydra Head Records,[14] Ipecac Recordings,[15] Napalm Records,[16] the Relapse Entertainment imprint of Relapse Records,[17] Seventh Rule Recordings,[18] and Southern Lord Records.[19] In the United States, local avant-garde metal scenes have emerged in the San Francisco Bay Area, with bands such as Giant Squid, Grayceon, and Ludicra,[20] Boston, with bands such as Isis, Kayo Dot, and maudlin of the Well and Seattle.[21] According to the New York Times, some regional scenes that developed in the mid-1990s included the cities of Tokyo, Los Angeles, and Oslo.[4]
