4 stars Smiles all around for these mothers, a trio that will pillage your town with a scorched earth policy and leave you dazed, shocked and giddy with metallic delights. More extreme and urgent than the F***ing Champs but not as minimal or repetitive as Orthrelm, BtA bring the extreme-tech and raise it to heights previously unattempted, utilizing highly organized but frantic riffage that careens, lurches and frightens with equal amounts of precision and lunacy. Also evident are hints of Don Cab-style math rock.

No point in describing each track as it simply doesn't matter with this N.Y. band of guitar (Mike Lerner), Warr guitar (Colin Marston), and drums (Charlie Zeleny)... it all bleeds into what is some of the most exciting progressive metal to emerge in the past few years. Always intense, never dark, a real talent and not to be overlooked if you can find this CD featuring five originals and four live cuts. A stunner.
