I'm looking for songs or bands that combine swing/big band style jazz with metal. I already know Diablo Swing Orchestra and I like their sound, but the opera vocals prevent me from really getting into them.

Then I recently discovered this song while browsing for new avant-garde metal bands. It fuses groove/death metal with swing - which doesn't sound like it should work, but imo it goes really well together.

So, basically, I'm looking for "swing metal," preferably closer in sound to Trepalium (heavier and with harsh vocals) than to Diablo Swing Orchestra, but I'll give a listen to anything that fits this "genre."

Demonspeed!! No big band instruments but the vocals are definitely swingy and the riffs are fun

Acrania from Mexico for sure. Death metal mixed with Latin Jazz.
In reference to Baby Metal

I've always found amazing how Jazz cleared its way throught salsa... Acrania its pretty cool, not that swing but definitely something else..
