Their music can be described as modern, alternative, prog (anyhow) metal, with extreme and experimental (as well as a handful tribal) passages, as it is influenced by bands such as Tool, Mastodon, Coheed and Cambria, Meshuggah, System Of A Down, A Perfect Circle and so on.
The rather irritating thing with this album is the songwriting part which is “all over the place”! I understand their need to “use their influences” in their own way but without having the apt ability to blend all those features together, the final outcome can become quite inharmonious and untidy. The production is good & modern, even though the guitars could have been a bit heavier and tighter.
