Two fabulous albums.  Had to go with the audacious Cheat The Gallows.
Wonderful band that deserves 100X more respect.
Saw them live this year at Progressive Nation.

So did I! It's sad that they only got to play a 30 minute set because I definitely wanted more where that came from!
I purchased Cheat The Gallows at the show where I got it signed by the whole band.Big smile

Back to the poll: My personal favorite is Money Machine followed by Hex, so it gets my vote here.

I've got Hex but I don't think I've listened to it more than once. It felt too much like Pink Sabbath with no unique input, perhaps I should try again some day.

A good band which deserves more recognition. Kudos to Mike Portnoy for inviting them on the Prog Nation tour. I am very fond of their new album Cheat the Gallows.
Hello, mirror. So glad to see you, my friend. It's been a while...

Hex, I think it's more variated, and it has more of my favourite songs.

I hear a great version of Death Walks Behind You, and really show that their influences are Atomic Rooster.
 
But perhaps i stick with the original version.
 
Good band.
