This is a post outside of the metaltree series I've been working on the 2nd edition for. There is a band I really enjoy quite a bit except for the vocals. The vocals some people may not mind, but the rest of what goes on in these songs makes up for the vocals. I've mentioned these guys a few times, but is usually talking about their guitarist. The rhythms and such done in this band are the closest to the type of stuff I tend to make up for myself when I am in the zone. I've never been to Tasmania, but man I really like these guys.
Let's start it out with an official video with an absolutely brilliant rhythm and melodic section. The drums are cool too, but primarily seem to be collections of very fast blast beats. Quite impressive drumming in terms of raw speed, but for me it is about the way these songs are put together.
Psycroptic - COLD (Official Music Video)
So how about a wonderful playthrough by Joe Haley on that same song. If the vocals are too much, watch this instead.

Now this following song is actually the first Psycroptic song I ever personally heard and I immediately fell in love with the rhythm of the song. This was the song that caught my attention, and Joe Haley's brilliant compositions have kept me coming back for more.
Psycroptic - Carriers of the Plague - Studio Version
Here is a live version:

Or as before if the vocals are just too much for you, this is another one Joe has done without vocals on youtube.

Here is another official video. I don't have a Joe Haley only version of this one. Though out of all of their videos on youtube this is the one with the most views.
