    Hey Bud...I added you the moment I received your email.

    Why on earth would Yahoo suspend someone like you? You're not running amok here in R&P slinging mud and posting silly irrelevant rant type questions like a couple of other well known reg's...I'm confused. Glad to see that you've returned though!

    I really never cared for the terms 'Math Rock', or 'Mathcore'...Lol.

    Though one of the best known, and one of my favorite 'Math Rock' bands from the 90's/00's is 'Don Caballero'. They employ the use of odd time signatures, additive and divisive rhythms, consonant and dissonant chord structures, and irregular-meter experiments like 11/4, and 9/8 time (hence the term 'Math Rock'). Similar in many ways to several of the progressive rock and fusion bands of the 70's that had previously traveled that road, like King Crimson, Gentle Giant, and Mahavishnu Orchestra. Though the more recent 'Math Rock' bands tend to be a little noisier, and don't play with nearly with the same skill or virtuosity in my opinion. With most 'Math Rock' bands, the influence of late 80's early 90's bands such as 'Primus' and 'The Jesus Lizard' can also be heard in their music.

    I have a few Don Caballero albums, and most of their stuff Is pretty cool. My favorite albums being 'Don Caballero 2', 'What Burns Never Returns', 'World Class Listening Problem', and 'American Don'.

    Here's a few tunes...

    I know this question is old as heck, but for other people who see this, I recommend the following: Destrage Dance Gavin Dance Revocation (not sure if math-core but still good) Fall of Troy The Human Abstract Between The Buried and Me Polyphia Blotted Science I'm a big PTH fan myself but I wouldn't say that all PTH fans will automatically like these bands. Protest the Hero is pretty unique so it is difficult to find bands that have both the same level of skill and the same musical style.

    I was going to post two of the bands Adam just mentioned, but since he already did I won't; also including BTBAM:

    And may I add you? I know I'm not a previous contact, but...
