I'm enjoying a non-metal band that I discovered recently, V?sen. They're a Swedish folk band (no electrified instruments at all), but it's pretty complex, even technical stuff. One of their members plays the nyckelharpa, the distinctively Swedish keyed string instrument. The only album of theirs I have right now is Whirled. Worth checking out if you like folk music, especially if you're burned out on the overplayed Celtic scene.

Sounds intriguing, CE. I'll definitely want to give them a listen. Are you into neo-folk at all, like Sol Invictus etc.?

I listened to one early Sol Invictus album on Yahoo Music Engine and didn't like it at all, but I've been occasionally intrigued by darkwave and stuff like Sopor Aeternus (how would they be classified?), so I'd probably be open to neofolk, particularly if there's any that has any virtuosity (although from what I gather, it's more about atmosphere).

Sol Invictus is more atmospheric than technical, but from what I've heard, Death In June and Of the Wand and Moon (which used to be more rooted in doom metal) have more involved instrumentation.
