    Fantastic band and one of the few pushing death metal forward. Wish they'd play live more often, dorky costumes or no dorky costumes:lol:

    I thought this was about Paul Masvidal's band after the first incarnation of Cynic... :(

    Interesting, like Blut Aus Nord do death metal minus the fretless and with added zipping round the fretboard. I like the clock head outfit.

    Forgot about these guys.

    Their guitar player was a member here at one time, but I haven't seen him in years.

    I wasn't sure what I was listening to or watching at first... but I have deemed it true and declare it to be composed of win.
    They seem like death metal played during the worst nightmare/hallucination of any man's life.
    So many albums to buy....damn you college and your fees!

    I thought this was going to be about Origin. LOL

    Oddly enough, both bands need to clean up their steaming pile of messy shit tone. BADLY. You know they're playing some really interesting stuff, but their tone just shits all over it. They may as well wank around randomly, cuz it'll sound the same.

    Good description! It's refreshing to hear some death metal where more thought is put into the music than the band name.
