I know this has been done before, but a conclusion was never really reached, and I think this site is missing a talented artist who has released many metal albums.  He has a released multiple thoroughly metal albums, with many other albums containing metal elements.  Here are a few that I'm familiar with.  I would also bet that he has other ones, considering he has averaged around 4 albums per year.

Buckethead playing technical metal:


Buckethead using blast beats and lots of dissonance:


Buckethead playing progressive metal:



Buckethead playing experimental metal:




Full albums on youtube:



Cuckoo Clocks Of Hell is considered to be his heaviest

Avant-garde? Shred (hard rock, in this case)? Prog?

I think Avant-Garde would be most accurate.  He has a lot of material that's Avant-Garde, and he had a couple albums released on Zorn's old label.  And even when he's not playing Avant-Garde music, it's usually somewhat experimental.

It's probably more of a matter of whether or not we qualify it as metal, not which subgenre.  Will discuss with A-G team in the meantime.

p.s. minor thing, but I don't really understand adding polls to addition threads.  It's not going to change the collabs' opinions regardless of vote distribution.

There was some discussion of his addition in this thread, but no formal suggestion was ever made and there doesn't seem to be any collaborator consensus on the site.

I would definitely say it's progressive metal.  I never hear moments of Avant-Garde Metal.  Maybe Experimental Rock, but all the metal elements are prog to me.

Also, a good deal of his discog has no metal what-so-ever.  But the metal albums are prog.

Ok Drew, we'll make a start on this artist. It's not going to be a quick job, so bear with us!

Just as well that the poll seems broadly in favour of addition, as Buckethead has been added and is complete up to the end of 2012. I'll leave this thread unlocked for a little while in case anyone has any comments on perhaps albums tagged as non-metal where you know better? I'll close it down in a few days.

Thanks for everyone who spent the time to add all of those albums. Everything looks great as far as I can tell, but Island of Lost Minds is marked as non-metal, and from what I've heard, that's one of his heaviest, and definitely his most dissonant.  It's essentially experimental metal, but I think it would fit under industrial, or if not, progressive.
