Of course I'm no metal expert, so take my opinion with a pinch of salt: Pretty standard symphish prog metal with an alternative rock (and melodic rock) influence.  Sounds good to me for Prog Metal, and not good at all for jazz-rock fusion. ;) If it weren't so metal, I'd suggest it for Crossover (pretty mainstream sounding,and hardly experimental at all, but then that's common for bands in Prog Metal).

You're right - no even traces of jazz-rock fusionLOL. And yes, I think not more experimental than any other prog metal band. But it's the rule of the genre!

Yeah they're a pretty crossover band (in a general sense of the word). Still I think they should be evaluated by the PMT first. Thumbs Up
