    Played a show with these guys with Cannibal Corpse and Napalm Death a bit ago. Became instant friends. They're super awesome guys, and super awesome musicians. They remind me of a mix between Decrepit Birth, Fallujah, and a slight tinge of Meshuggah (mostly because of the low tuning). Their new album, 'The Conscious Seed Of Light', will be out October 15th on Metal Blade Records. It was engineered and produced by Erik Rutan (Hate Eternal).

    I saw them play the PA Deathbed Festival, and they stole the show for me. Absolutely awesome! I was wearing my "Rain Eater" shirt I got at the show the other day too :yesway:.

    Just saw these guys with Wretched last week. Hadn't heard of them before that show, but was pretty impressed (despite shitty venue sound). Totally agree on Fallujah, that's the side that immediately jumped out to me. We need more of these space-y technical death metal bands. Good shit.

    Very cool stuff... loved the guy's vocals actually. Kind of got a Neurosis/old Mastodon vibe from em and it suited the music so well

    Same here, but vocals seem to be so hard for any band to get right nowadays. It's so easy to sound generic whatever you do.

    Most of the time, the vocals totally ruin this kind of music for me. I can't stand those standard DM vocals, this sounds great to my ears :)
