Best new prog metal band, and one of the best (if not the best) prog metal albums released this year. They are a melodic prog metal band, but with very interesting passages. Instrumentally they are solid but the songs keep moving along. Nothing seems out of place. Nothing feels like it was chopped up on the editing floor and slapped in to a song. There's certainly a modern feel to them, but in all the best ways. Their songs range from fairly moderate paced, moderate aggression to Nevermore'ish aggression. It would be incorrect to label these guys as a clone of anybody else. They are building off the traditions of great bands and creating something that is quite new. At times though it almost feels like a more progressive version of Disturbed or Godsmack. But the band changes things up enough that this label isn't consistent.
