Hi Svet, thank you again for the Mathrock suggestion--  it's possible these guys could be placed in Crossover or, less so, Postrock, but unfortunately they are not really Math though they do emulate it at times.   Alex may have a different opinion.

The band briefly got mentioned on here four years ago in the General Music Discussions forum: http://www.progarchives.com/forum/forum_posts.asp?TID=43121, but not much was really said about them. I'd always regarded them as a slightly unusual alternative/indie rock outfit rather than prog, but that was before I started using these forums and learning that there was a hell of a lot more to the genre than I had previously realised...
 
Nice selection of samples Svetonio...Thumbs Up

Interesting band. I'm halfway through the samples, and so far I'd classify them more as experimental alternative rather than progressive. Stylistically they have a bit of math rock in them, but not enough for our PA category, they lie on the indie/post-hardcore side of math rock (this is the way that RYM tags them too). Sometimes they are just a slightly more experimental grunge. For this reason they also remind me a bit of the Tool I've head.
