3 stars Comparing this band to 'System of a Down' might seem a bit out of place. Sure, they're a contemporary band, they're style is chaotic and they're really loud. PTH however is muscially superior to SoaD.

The vocalist of PTH is awesome. His range is amazing. Ranging from clean vocals, to death grunts, to screamo. He does it all and live he's quite a performer. The other musicians are great too especially the guitar player and the drummer.

The music makes me want to put them in the same category as SikTh, The Dillinger Escape Plan and Between the Buried and Me. The big difference is that PTH sounds like these bands put on speed. Eclectic seems to be the right word. Might just be the best prog metal release of the year... over to you Opeth!
