Build Your Own "Supergroup"!

What I'm doing here is taking a single member from six separate bands to fill a spot in my ideal "super group". The spots consist of lead singer, drummer, two guitarists, a bassist, and a keyboardist. The style of music I envision this band playing is a combination of technical metal with dizzying time signatures and tempo changes, with a bit of musical wankery to boot. Probably with a "post metal" aspect to them in some shape or form. What combination of your favorite artists/musicians do you think could make music that would take the world by storm?
1Between the Buried and Me

Dan Briggs (Bassist) - This man's style just absolutely blows my mind, especially being a bassist myself. He has the ability to creat bass lines that flow away from the general vibe of the guitar and stand alone as interesting constructural decisions. Most definitely my favorite bass player in my preferred musical genre (progressive metal).
2The Dillinger Escape Plan

Chris Pennie (drums) - I know he isn't a member anymore, but I sure as hell wasn't going to post Coheed and Cambria as to reference him. Just doesn't feel proper. But his style on the album Miss Machine slayed me. He's an insanely technical drummer, overall. His power cannot be overlooked.
3Scale the Summit

Chris Letchford (Guitar) - This guy just does it all. Soaring melodies, be it in the form of tapping or "solos", heavy rhythms, and quite a unique style at that. This guy knows how to add emotion and intrigue into his writing.

Ben Sharp (Guitar) - A force to be reckoned with. This guy has so much thought and precision behind every riff he writes, and his knack for repetition and slight tempo changes just intrigue the piss out of me. Truly an inspiration.
5Dream Theater

Jordan Rudess (Keyboard/Synth) - No one else really comes to mind when desiring a player that has the ability to hypnotize the masses with speed and technical skill while still retaining the ability to slow and down and add some mood and feeling behind the music. A key member, indeed.

Michael Armine (Vocals) - I may get some crap for this one, but this man astounds me. He's truly an artist that it doesn't matter what he's saying, as most times he's buried so deep in the mix it's up for debate, but it's how he says it; the conviction he shows. Not to mention the lyrics he writes that bring to mind so much mysticism that it makes my head spin.
