5 stars This is one of those amazing discoveries that I made not too long ago when I was browsing for music that was new to my ears and at the same time I was browsing for music that captivated me and interested me throughout and impressed me with their music. This is one such band that I was basically blown away by their unique, head-on approach to their music.

The music is dense, spine-crushing, mysterious, weird, beautiful, somewhat catchy, and definitely avant-garde. Not only does their music blur the boundaries of many genres of music and then put them all together in this ever changing but consistently intense laser beam of music. Everything about their music is pretty intense and captivating. Even in the softer passages you just can't wander away from it for it demands your full attention to pay attention to their multi-layered sound with equally captivating vocals.

At first the casual listener may be slightly shocked at what kind of music is blasting in their ears. So this music is not really for the casual listener but its more people who are indeed looking for something exciting, unique, experimental, heavy, intense and yet uniquely beautiful and mysterious. It may take a few listens to get accustomed to their harsh sound but once you do, you'll find more beauty to their music and find yourself immersed in the interesting landscape that is of Avant-Garde Metal when its done right.
