    "post-metal-djent-hindustani-cl*assical-prog-jazzery."

    Does Sam Dunn know about this sub-genre, and if so - when will be the documentary?

    I had to listen to this one first just BECAUSE of this description! Although I saw hindustani as INDUSTRIAL when I first looked at it. Which actually fits too. And you could throw the word "technical" in there too for giggles....

    I have a digital download version that I bought from a German website, but apparently it is now available on iTunes.

    It's a definite must have for instrumental prog fans. Incredible album.

    No. I read a few years ago that one of the members was trying to pull something through with a record label, but current research suggests that it fell through.

    Cant have an obscure band thread without mentioning some Comus. Fantastic progressive folk <3

    They're also a huge influence on Mr Akerfeldt of Opeth. He also took a part of the lyric from this song as one of the title to an Opeth album. ;D
