Looking for heavy, fast instrumental music
July 5, 2014 9:08 AM Subscribe
I like listening to heavy, fast music while writing but recently I find I am unable to do so if the songs have words (or at least words that I can follow). I am looking for rock/metal/industrial/post-whatever that has drums and guitars, but is either instrumental (like Mogwai), or with vocals that are not comprehensible (like ISIS) or buried (like Sub Rosa).

Bands that work for me as writing music include The Heads, Baroness, Nadja, Sunn O, Dirty Three, Jesu, Earth, Conan, Explosions in the Sky, Black Boned Angel and Loop. I'm looking for bands similar to this.
I've been trying classical also, so suggestions in that vein which are likely to work for a metalhead are also welcome, or music from other genres with a strong rhythm but no words.
