I'm looking for some good instrumental progressive metal or jazz fusion bands?

I like prog-rock, jazz, jazz fusion, early metal, funk, and blues.

To give you an idea of the kind of music I'm looking for, some of the bands I like are: Frank Zappa, ELP, (early) Rush, Pink Floyd, Jeff Beck, Chick Corea, Charles Mingus, Miles Davis, Edgar Winter, Weather Report, John Mayall, Liquid Tension Experiment...

I'm looking for some good heavier bands that play instrumental progressive metal. I liked the instrumental work from bands like Symphony X and Dream Theater but I just can't stand the vocals. I want to hear some metal that is heavy yet complex and that draws from other genres like blues, jazz, and funk.

I'm also always looking to hear about cool new (or old) jazz-fusion-funk bands.
