    I discovered this band and album by complete accident last week while going on a little journey around YouTube. I am pleased to report that this is hands down one of the best albums that i have ever heard.
    It is very heavy, yet at the same time very technical and intricate. The sort of album you need to listen to again and again, as each time you discover something that you had missed previously. There are so many layers to the music that you’ll be hearing new things for months. Also has a sort of retro, classic feel to it in places. Kind of like a heavy, modern metal band ate Led Zeppelin. I honestly cannot get enough of this album at the minute, and i have listened to nothing else for the last week. These guys can really play. Very talented musicians! 5 out of 5:)
