Oh absolutely! Me especially as I'm the keyboardist/guitarist in the band. I still can't believe I got that special mention.

You guys are awesome!! I absolutely love it. I love the riffs, I love the vocals, I love the way the keyboards are seamlessly integrated. Can you shed a little light on how you recorded the guitars/what equipment you used?

We went direct with an Axe-FX Ultra for all guitars and bass recordings. Collectively, we have several Carvins, Parkers, Ibanezes, a DBZ, and a Strictly 7 that were all used in the recording process.

Great stuff. Looked it up on YT after reading that glowing review, and he's bang on the money; soaring melodies, masterful rhythm and beautiful harmony throughout. Best thing I've heard this year. And the vocals are incredible, it's rare you can decipher every word of lyric in a DM tune the first time (for me personally). Stormborn is killer!
anyway im on my phone so i cant really do a full on review, but major congrats man, well and truly deserved and I hope you guys go far, insane talent! :hbang:

Somewhere.
We were so surprised and happy to receive such an exceptional review. Check it out here: A Sense of Gravity – Travail - Heavy Blog Is Heavy

Cheers!

Dude are you ....ing kidding me? This is ....ing great. I'm extremely wary of current trends and everyone trying to sound like meshuggah/periphery/aal - but I am amazed at how you guys are a breath of fresh air. I love the clean singing too even though I'm usually into death metal.

Keep it up!

This sounds absolutely killer!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:hbang::hbang::hbang::scream::scream::scream:!!

I am not usually a fan of keys, or clean vocals, in general in this kind of music, but you guys make it work perfectly. I'm from Seattle as well, are you guys playing here anytime soon?
