    Yes, they are awesome, I still can't believe how Colin can play that instrument as he does while headbanging........

    I want to have an Imperial Attack Spaceturtle as a pet.

    Yes very good band. Colin also plays in the band Dysrhythmia which is also quite technical, but not so much metal. I've seen Dysrhythmia play twice and both times were great, but I really want to see Behold... soon.

    Yeah! Behold... is great!

    What I like best are the song names: Nano nucleonic cyborg summoning, Alcoholocaust and Sensory Amusia are my favs.

    If you guys like Behold... you should probably check out Electrocution 250 and Electro Quarterstaff (http://electroquarterstaff.com), both excellent tech bands.

    I like the 'behold' stuff -similar to the SPASTIC INK stuff yet maybe not as
    organized. It lacks the finesse/maturity executed by SA,Wtower,etc
    in my opinion- kinda sloppy. It did have some really cool moments but other times theyre just toooo berserk! Its still fun -none the less- to hear intense music.
    anyways.........................

    I agree 100% to what you said man... too much chaos.... at sometimes, you can't even hear what they're playing or are trying to play... especially on "You Will Be Reincarnated As An Imperial Attack Spaceturtle" !!!
    ... now as far as talent goes.... that's an entirely different issue because they definately are... especially the guy who plays the Warr Guitar :headbang:

    no, ok I changed my mind
    upon further review of the behold... cd these guys really tear it up
    I just missed them playing here in Boise, Id. but I did get the new CD on
    metal blade- they present some musical landscapes Ive never been to before,
    and thats pretty cool! they have tremendous potential.
    and I REALLY like the new Slayer cd..............brutal
    peace

    I didn't bother checking them out when the promo came, but these guys are amazing!
    Also check out Journey Into the Fourth Dimension. They aren't very clean sounding and very chaotic, but the music is very weird and really technical. They are also extremely fast and aggressive.
    It is completely instrumental neo-classical.

    you're a dick, he was helping us out.

    just because someone doesn't know that band doesn't mean they don't know anything.

    Slope is right. Music isn't about knowing more bands, it's about enjoying them. Probably a couple of users who doesn't post in a regular basis (or aren't even registered) followed his advice and now are enjoying BTA. Just the fact that you heard that band (or the majority, it doesn't care) doesn't mean that everybody heard it.

    PS: That post reminded me of someone, it's like the "DarkLord-ian" spirit came back......

    It's really great but I think they over reacting
    sorry but I want more Power riffs (not power metal) than spastic... we have spastic ink for that...
    Any way they are really nice but not for every day listening...
