i did a search here for this band and nothing came up. i find that weird considering they've been around for a while and some of the members have been in Cynic. they're really quite talented imo and they're currently working on their 3rd album.

here's a song from their album Formless which happens to be one of my favorite albums of this decade. the song is called Atmas Heave. 


The song i REALLY wanted to show you guys was Open Close The Book though but, i could only find a cover of it on youtube... anyways, cheers and i hope you like it.

your review was actually okay though it had some good points although i also read pfdfcc's  review i agreed with his the most especially the part about atmas heave being the weakest track on the album. for some reason that's the most popular one so that's why i posted it. i really wanted to post open close the book but, i couldn't find it.

Actually not one of my best, one of the first ones I did. Maybe I should revise it.
 
Still a 3 star album, but I could describe my feelings on it better.
You are quite a fine person, and I am very fond of you. But you are only quite a little fellow, in a wide world, after all.

Its an OK album but for all the talant of the musicians they fail to create any noteworthy or varied compositions IMO. A cas eof what could have been. Mind you, I only have the self titled debut so maybe they got better.
Spending more than I should on Prog since 2005

IMO, a couple of things they did that made it better was the addition of a new vocalist and the mixing and production on Formless was a slight improvement. i am kind of worried about the new album they are working on because once again they're changing vocalists and rumor has it that it's going to be male vocals this time and they have a new drummer as well called Matt Thompson. suppposedly he used to be in King Diamond. i hope the new album is going to be as good if not,better than Formless but, i'm having some doubts on that. but, of course i will give it a chance. I already know some people who aren't even going to give it a chance just because it's going to be male fronted this time...

I LOVE the band.
I have both their albums (in CD form as well!) and they are great.
"Formless" is one of my favorite albums. I'd put it top 10.


I used to talk to the bassist on his youtube account and they've been working on the 3rd album for sometime. It was due to release a few months ago but he said they got a new, male, vocalist and was going to rework the album a bit to fit the new vocal style.
GREAT band and I hope they release the third album soon! I have been waiting for like a year now LOL
