Magma - Mekanik Destruktiw Kommandoh

One of the earliest influences on Math Rock and pretty much all other forms of experimental music. Elements of their sound can be heard in bands such as Ruins & Hella. Magma was founded in Paris in 1969 and is one of the best examples of the Prog rock scene that was happening in France at the time. Drummer and band leader, Christian Vader, created his own language called Kobaian that was often used for Magma's lyrics. The most stand out feature of their music is the incredibly layered choral style vocals (aka Operacore). Check it out.
