Heavily influenced by early pioneers of prog like King Crimson and Yes, their sound meshes the more modern sensibilities of bands like The Mars Volta, Battles and Death from Above with elements of heavier progressive bands like Mastodon and Russian Circles, to create a completely unique, densely-layered, off-kilter take on instrumental math-rock.
With House of Wisdom… the band have created their most expansive release to date: a double concept album revolving around Baghdad’s 13th Century Houses of Wisdom, and the Siege of Baghdad in 1258 – which led to their destruction – as well as being widely cited as one of the major causes of the end of the Islamic Golden Age.
