    They're kinda like Necrophagist-meets-Dimmu Borgir-meets-Cannibal Corpse, to me.

    Anyone every check 'em out? I have a bass player friend who recommended them to me, and who is a big fan.

    Apparently they're into bands like Nile, Cynic, Necrophagist, and Cryptopsy, which makes sense.

    Just recently got into this band, and ill tell ya, i like what i hear so far, very tight, and based off of the live vids i have seen they are equally tight as well onstage.

    They're nice heavy, technical metal. But they have more of a groove to them, like Pantera or CC, I think, than bands like Cynic or Necrophagist. Although sometimes they're equally as out there.

    fuckin love these guys. I saw them with all shall perish; the venue was basically a dance floor so i talked with one of the guitarists for a good amount of time before the show. He's a big vetta fan (plays an upgraded vetta one, other guitarist plays a 147), and the tone they got live and in the studio is huge. Cant wait to see them again at metal fest

    I had actually made this thread 2 days ago...but I don't see it anywhere so I think I forgot to click submit.

    In any case.

    I cannot get enough of these guys and can't wait to see them with Suicide Silence and Nile.

    They're a ridiculous amalgamation of grind core, Black Dahlia Murder, Necrophagist, Cynic, and Atheist.

    just bought their Cd, Akeldama, a couple hours ago. I must say, it kicks ass! Those guys can really play. Anyway, anyone ever listen to them?

    I only picked up Akeldama a few weeks ago, after digging the crap out of their myspace setlist. Great stuff, and hopefully I'll be seeing them with Neuraxis in about a month :hbang:.
