I knew this was going to be good from the second I saw it was on Escape Artist Records... I enjoy almost every release they have put out.

The title pretty much says it all, this band sounds like a mental disorder. Their twisting rythms, deep scratchy vocals and intricate drumming defy most labels I have heard floating around. As the CD goes along you'll notice that the music in time far outweighs the short periods of vocals.

The almost immediate thing I noticed is their song lengths... almost everything over 5 minutes. With some bands this would prove to be boring, but this band makes so many transitions within that five minutes that it is hard to lose interest.

I don't really know what genre to lump this in, so that's not needed. All I know is that they play a very eclectic blend of heavy music and obviously have all sorts of songwriting skill and musical ability.

I saw em live they were good but didn't like the cd as much, the dudes in the band were pretty cool dudes though.
