This is a Canadian band that only has one album, but they're planning on releasing more... Their sound reminds me of Tool and Mastodon combined, and they have gotten praise from the likes of Bruce Dickenson (Iron Maiden) and Dave Mustaine (Megadeth.)
 
Here is their myspace:
 
Give them a listen... on their myspace they have one of their 'epic' longer tracks, 'Love Despair' (which is 11 minutes) and a great, spacy track. For a shorter, more concise dose, listen to '2 Months In,' or 'Standing.'
 
Hope you enjoy! If they get through, i would be happy to write their bio...

I gave the samples a listen and I think the PMT should evaluate this first. Would you write a bio for them if cleared, Conor?

I'll post this in the PMT thread, and we'll try and evaluate asap.

Alright, sounds good. As soon as I have some time at my leisure I'll write up a good bio!
