    Yes, Djam Karet. They're a California-based guitar band that plays high-energy, instrumental progressive rock. It's a sub-genre that tends toward bombast and excess...except that these guys - in addition to being able to play incredibly fast, complex passages - also happen to be very fine musicians, who can play with a great deal of dynamics, sophistication, nuance...and restraint! :eek:

    I heard them play live at ProgDay 2002 in North Carolina, and was just so, so impressed. Here's a link to their site. Y'all check 'em out now, hear? :smug:
