I'll go with Grayceon (you can read my review to see why).
The Pax Cecilia are not far behind, but as a whole album, I find Blessed Are The Bonds to have a lesser effect on me than Grayceon.
 
Both highly recommended though.

^ I guess I'm with you here (though 3 times listened is not enough to judge )...it will hardly change. But the PAXes are pretty close.

Grayceon are great, haven't hear Pax Cecilia yet. Are they similar?

Havnt heard either yet, but I have heard a lot about them and unsurprisingly I do want to get a hold on both of them.
Spending more than I should on Prog since 2005

That is a close one, I'm not sure.
 
I just got Blessed are the Bonds a few days ago, so I'm still digesting it.

I'm disappointed - neither of these players are avant-garde!

I'm not entirely sure, it was at least 3 weeks, though.
 
I had completely forgotten about it when it arrived, if that's any indication of how long it took. xD

It took less than 2 weeks for me to receive it but even a month (or more) would have been worth it!
 
There is variety in this album - for instance take the first two songs and then the switch in style with the third song...
 
By the way, PA has a streaming of the second song from the album (The Tomb). Listen to it, it shows how diverse the band can be.

I'll let you know how quick I get it when I do...I live in New York though, which apparently is where they are shipping from.

Mine took 2 weeks.
 
And I have to pick The Pax Cecilia.I love Grayceon but think Blessed are the Bonds is more of a complete work than the album Grayceon has released so far.

This is a tough choice for me.

I loved both bands ever since the first time I heard them, but Grayceon had more of an impact on me. Grayceon gets my vote with The Pax Cecilia very close second.

I will also vote later, It is difficult to estimate these two great but complex works after only a few listenings. But at the moment I preffer Grayceon.

GREAT POLL!
 
Post metal bands without the post or the metal in them, their great. This is a hard one, bith of these albums are on my top five of the year, but I dont really know which is best, I'll listen a couple more times.
