    What's up y'all. After several years, my band just put out our 3rd album, "Tearing Back the Veil II: Awakening", which completes a concept we have been messing with for awhile. We've worked on this puppy for a long time. It's got all kinds of vibes all over: Dub, some heavy 8 string grooves, pretty Porcupine Tree-ish passages, a few instrumentals, big harmony sections, and it generally likes to go all over the place and explore; no song on here sounds like the one before it. We also fully took advantage of incorporating some string sections in this one (real instruments ;) ), and had some friends show up, including the homie Plini. It's is extremely melodic, vibey, heavy and organic, and the bands I listed are probably a good amalgam of our sound.

    Please check this thing out if you are able. We hope you enjoy it.

    Still working on it. I listened to Sight Before Sound first because, ya know, Plini.
    I'm currently on Inverse and I think my favorite track thus far is Loose Ends. It's a great track to open with, very Karnivool-esque, especially the bass part.

    Read this the other day on Facebook, finally got a break between work and sleep to listen... not far in, so not much to say, but as expected, it sounds great so far. I loved Ascension, the melodies, the groove, the vocals, and it sounds like you continued from there. However... third record? I never knew there was a first one :D Which is kind of great, so now I have two new Lithium Dawn records to listen to. Yay!
    Does it remind anyone else of Vola, or am I just weird? :D

    Thanks buddy. There is a bit of Karnivool/APC in that one. Glad you dig it!

    Hey man, thanks so much. Well, we did write the two at the same time back in fall of 2012/winter 2013, so they were meant to feel kind of symbiotic.

    And indeed, AION has been out for awhile. It's free too so snag it!!
