The music falls somewhere along a continuum between Atheist-style death metal and the more progressive black-metal excursions of Enslaved. The songs are generally fast-paced but the band frequently shift gears as the intricate and often layered guitar performances twist, turn, flicker, and swarm. The head-spinning instrumental performances are topped off by incandescent clean guitar solos, usually flashing white-hot over the thunder of a double-bass kick. And the vocals are almost as much fun as the instrumental acrobatics, varying from vitriolic roars to ugly gargling to clean harmonies. Fans of progressive death or black metal really owe it to themselves to check this out. (nocleansinging.com)
