Ok these aren't all modern and lean more toward progressive death metal but still have some jazz influence. I'd recommend the albums Trepalium - XIII and Shining - Blackjazz for something a little less deathy. Shining is actually black metal/jazz fusion.

I've never been much of a fan of the deep screaming like that first link you posted, but this Trepalium song is great so far. vocals and the verse riff remind me of mudvayne. love the classical/jazzy feel of the fills.
this shining song is definitely interesting too. I'll have to check out both of these albums

While a little less Metal, Planet X does a fantastic job of using a lot of Fusion in their music. It's hard to find any good clips on youtube but here is a concert that should give you a good idea of what they are capable of.
