Kayo Dot is an American experimental rock group that forms in 2003 after the disbanding of Maudlin of the Well, a progressive heavy metal band which formed in 1996 and dissolved in 2003. They release their debut album Choirs of the Eye on John Zorn's Tzadik Records label. It is a very evocative and genuinely experimental album. Kayo Dot signs to Robotic Empire Records to release its second album, Dowsing Anemone with Copper Tongue in 2006.

The music of Kayo Dot features various genres, from heavy metal to classical music with songs that involve complex instrumentation, keyboards, flute, clarinette and saxophone. Subtle passages of lulls and distant melodies can frequently erupt in a storm of chaos and claustrophobic textures of tension and impending doom. Kayo Dot uses a vast array of instrumentation to create an exciting convergence of violence and serenity.

The band is now signed to Hydra Head Records and is set to record another album on August 26th through September 9th of 2007 for a release in early 2008.
