3 stars This is wild and crazy music along the same lines as The Mars Volta, but with a lot a screaming vocals. The instrumentals are complex and heavy, quite dense at times like TMV, but sometimes breaking down the density without really cutting back on the intensity. Even the short quieter passages are frantic.

Since these are demos, they are quite raw, yet the instrumentals are worked out very well. They are very technically performed with wild passages. These demos were leaked on the internet while the band was working on the E.P. entitled "Phantom on the Horizon". The demos that make up this "E.P." were never released in a physical form, but only available in downloaded format. They were perfected however for the actual 2008 recording of "Phantom of the Horizon".

I am reviewing this particular recording because of it's crazy raw sound that actually is quite impressive even if it is hard to listen to because of it's intensity, which is occasionally interrupted by musical break downs, only to be commenced again shortly after. For those that love unforgiving brutal music, this is a great album. I don't care for the screaming, I have to admit, but I do love the complexity of the music and the amazing musicianship here. I can easily give this 3 stars, but unless you want to search for the rawness of this collection, you are better off getting "Phantom of the Horizon".
