Was recently introduced to a band called Russian Circles. Not exactly what I would call metal but way harder than pop and very listenable over and over.

Yngwie Malmsteen has some good metal instrumental pieces even if the song isnt a true instrumental, hes described as "neo-classical metal:
Deathknights are whores! They're cheap, easy, and spread diseases.
OOM, pulling more trash.
Its alright, I'm a Paladin!

Probably considered more rock instead of metal, but just about anything from:

Joe Satriani (ex. Surfing with the Alien, Satch Boogie)

Steve Vai (ex. For the Love of God, Eugene's Trick Bag)

Dream Theater (ex. Overture 1928, Under a Glass Moon)


Great songs

^^ Dream Theater has some good stuff but the vast majority of their stuff has vocals (but Mike Portnoy ftw!). I was going say above that Russian Circles has a lot of the same feel as Dream Theater, except it's 3-man band with no vocals whatsoever. I won't say I've listed to a whole lot -- learning Death Rides a Horse and Harper Kelly on drums -- but I'm liking what I'm hearing.

The instrumental version of Nightwish's Dark Passion Play is beautiful.


Val Allen Wood's solo work is pretty good, songs aren't quite 'finished' yet though.

That was... epic. Can't reply without contributing in a thread full of metal, so I recommend Megadeth's Megadeth's "Into the Lungs of Hell"

Do they have to actually be instrumentals? I can think of a few metals songs that have beautiful guitarwork, but eventually involve someone singing (and the singing isn't necessarily all that nice, so I expect someone has actually stripped out the vocals at some point to make an instrumental version if you want to look for one).

Can post some links when I get home.

I'd hazard to guess that most Americans aren't all that knowledgeable when it comes to Euro bands; some examples (many of the following aren't technically "full" instrumentals, they're meant to give a rough idea of what to expect) :
