Have any good heavy brutal technical microtonal metal to suggest me?
The only band I know of using microtones are Massive Audio Nerve. Not really tech but at least it vaguely fits the critieria.
BLABBERMOUTH.NET - M.A.N Claims To Be First Metal Band Ever To Incorporate 'Full Scale Quarter Tone System'
There aren't many microtonal metal bands, most metal musicians and musicians in general are too afraid to leave 12-edo.
I'm working on microtonal stuff but I need to mod my guitars to the tunings I've come up with before I can record any of it.
Anyone remember this man?
Sadly, he's the furthest I've got with micro-tonal metal. I would be interested in hearing more, if there is any.
Actually, to be fair to the guy - I just found this on his Soundcloud and it's quite cool:
Came to post Ron Sword.
Ninja'd from a mile away.
I would love to hear some more! That M.A.N track is good but its a bit "nu-metal" for my tastes.
Keep em coming, it's not bad!! It'd be cool though if it were a little more arabic in sounding.
16 equal steps per octave

Blut Aus Nord use fretless guitars a lot and seem very free tonally.
More TetraF in 16 ESPO: NIGHT OF THE LIVING COPS by Fabrizio Fulvio Fiale on SoundCloud - Create, record and share your sounds for free
January 2030, acid rainy day
reign in pain
People lives inside overalls
- illusion democracy
All is calm in the city,
all is very bright
No leaf moved in the night
Acid rain is soakin’slowly
all the graveyard
Deads are soaked very hard
From the grave,
with their cludgels,
Cops of sixty years ago
very long sleep
Want to stretch
With their eyes like embers
And their teeth like fox-snares
From the ground, that cracking
THE NIGHT OF
LIVING COPS !!!
Go out from the ground
By rain they’re found
Seeking heads to split
Hitting brain like shit
With their big cludgels
All the longhair fell
Now, with stinking breath,
They meet you the DEATH!!!
I guess Gorguts
No....they use normally fretted guitars. Unless they changed their minds for the new album?!
There's a microtonal thread popping up every week. That being said, everything I've heard with microtonal music (aside from Easley Blackwood's stuff) is some reiteration of altered minor scales, which doesn't really make any original use of microtones, imo. Bands like Gorguts, Ulcerate, Blut Aus Nord, Baring Teeth, Concealment, etc. make music that blows any of this microtone shred out of the water while sounding 10x more "out there" with 12 tones.
I don't think fear has anything to do with it. First of all, the genre itself has limited appeal. And secondly, its not exactly easy to find a microtonal guitar without making a relatively serious investment financially.
Personally, I don't "understand" the music but I wanted to learn more through the thread. It seems like a lot of the examples here are just playing atonal guitar solos, which is something that Adrian Belew has been doing for 30 years. Oddly, his sense of atonality never completely forgoes melody.
Micrometal artists are a minority within a minority within a minority, in 4 years of searching the above are all i have discovered, and most of them are beginners. With so few artists there's a low chance of finding something you really like or consider 'extremely talented'. However personally i do think most of these artsis are very talented.
17 and 24EDO are good for an arabic sound.
I would be interested to know what tunings you've chosen
Well its also a pain in the ass to find people to play with. I have enough trouble finding people that tune to B standard.
Asteroidi Esadecafonici: VIETATO DISSENTIRE by Fabrizio Fulvio Fiale on SoundCloud - Create, record and share your sounds for free
Now that TetraF has 16 metal frets per octave instead of nylon cable ties, 'Hexadecaphonic asteroid' have rerecorded Vietato Dissentire.
That last one was much interesting! It is sad, though, that most microtonal metal artists tend to stay on some illusory "safe path" with bland drums and used song structures... Imagine if Unexpect would play microtonal? That would just be amazing!
Yeah i know what you mean, so far the most innovative metal bands are actually using 12ET instruments.
Concerning your original post, i think Last Sacrament is the one to keep an eye on, new material coming soon:
Last Sacrament - Official page of the Florida Death metal band
Maniacal Meditations | Last Sacrament this demo's rough in places and is deliberately old school death. Drummer is Guido Wyss, using 2 double-beater kick pedals.

That new material indeed sounds mind-blowing!
