Fantastic fast paced prog rock band. Very unique indeed with a superb ability to change tempo but yet keep that melodic prog style with hints of modern metal mixed in there is no stopping their talent shining through. I must say I am digging these guys big time, very pleasant to listen to indeed. Vocally superb, Lyrically Supreme and the music is just pure awesomeness.
