    Racer X has a few songs that are very technical. try "technical difficulty", actually. good song. And dream theater is always one of the best for that sort of thing.

    And whatever you do, don't listen to Lamb of God... they are absolute shit. most black/death metal isn't very good, especially if you appreciate technical skill.

    Here are a few kick ass technical metal bands:

    Atheist (Jazz influenced technical DM)
    Gorguts (There last two ablums are technical death, obscura is probably the most mind-bendingly technical metal ablum ever created)
    Anata (Technical and melodic DM)
    Theory in practice (Very technical DM)
    Domination through impurity (Very technical DM)
    Cynic (Technical DM with progressive elements)
    Martyr (Technical DM with progressive elements)
    Quo vadis (Technical DM/Thrash with progressive elements)
    Death (There later stuff was techy, such as the sound of perseverence)
    !T.O.O.H.! (Technical DM/Grind)
    Sleep terror (Instrumental technical DM)
    Behold...the arctopus (Instrumental & highly technical progressive metal)
    Spiral architect (Technical progressive metal)
    Coroner (Technical thrash metal)
    Confessor (Technical doom metal)
    Soilent green (Somewhat techy Death/Grind/Doom metal)
