I'm so impressed with these guys!  They do an amazing job with making obscure songs sound very accessible and catchy!  Combine that with Mike Vennart's beautifully contemporary vocals, bone-crushing metal riffs, and serenely ambient ballads, this is a group that everybody should at least have an opinion on!  Hopefully the opinion is good though Wink

Jonny, I think you put it very well - beautiful melodies and vocals and massively powerful. One of the best bands around at the moment.

Everyone Into Position blew me away, but Frames was something else entirely. These guy do put together some amazing work.

I absolutely adore their earlier heavier stuff, like the song Catalyst or Massive Bereavement.

I had Effloresce at one point but my comp was wiped clean so I lost it (this was of course back before I bought the physical disc).  I need to get it again as I love Frames and Everyone Into Position.
 
I also do not have any of their EPs which have tracks that weren't on any of the albums.  And I think they're releasing a new album this year!  I don't know if it's going to be released this year, but I do know that it's going to consist of 15 songs all under 4 minutes long.

One of my faves! I prefer the more laid back,spacey approach but their more aggressive songs are very good as well. I feel that as a whole Everyone Into Position is their best album but tracks like the Frame and Only Twin are probaly the best things that they've ever done in my opinion.i have not heard anything about a new album but if this is true then I am very excited!Smile

Definitely one of the best newer bands out there. Effloresce is my favorite album, with Frames close behind. Everyone Into Position is alright too. Songs like Long Forgotten, Catalyst, Massive Bereavement, Women Who Love Men Who Love Drugs, One Day All This Could Be Yours,  etc. make Effloresce an instant classic. I do think however, that the vocal lines are nicer on the ears in Frames than in a few of the pieces on Effloresce.

I'm highly anticipating their next album. =|:{D

Just discovered these guys. I've got Frames, and the new Home and Minor EP so far. Good stuff.
Hello, mirror. So glad to see you, my friend. It's been a while...

They have a great vibe through the songs... with great spacy grooves very well constructed and their heavier stuff flows great. I'm not that "In" into this kind of music... but this band is really great and I have both LPs. I hope they will launch something big someday soon... great band...

They have 3, not 2 LPS jampa.

Effloresce, Everyone Into Position and Frames.

Plus two EPs that could almost be counted as albums. I love them all pretty much. :P
