Proggish Brooklyn instrumentalists Dysrhythmia tore a hole through the infant indie-metal scene in the early '00s with a handful of challenging, nourishing albums. A good starting point is 2003's Pretest, whose jazz-inflected sound no doubt helped pave a path for listeners to explore more adventurous musical passages in the metal realm. In fact, you can hear the band's stamp on locals like Scale the Summit, Co-Pilot and Tuesday's openers, Cavernous.
