I really enjoy Necrophagist, but that's got a lot to do with my classical background. Ulcerate is pretty killer as well, makes me feel like Neurosis meets Nile kinda. I really like Obscura as well, one of the best tech bands.
I went to see Cynic, Scale the Summit, and Devin Townsend Project the other night. I didn't like DTP's music recorded, but live.... it's incredible. All of those bands were killer. BTBAM was headlining... I ended up leaving during their set.
