vocals, they use these liberally. The first album ("Remission") is a
bit more spastic grindcore and the second ("Leviathan") is more
straightforward and proggy. It's kind of weird, I think I like the
first album better, but the second one ends up in my CD player more
often. Regardless, great metal band. I'm excited about their new
my full thoughts on the first two albums...
