Anyone a fan of this band? The new album is brilliant but it took about 5 minutes to decide which forum to put this thread in as it's almost impossible to categorize them.

One of the best albums of 08;

After seeing their signature guitars on the ESP website, I watched a few videos on Youtube. What I heard was somewhere between Marilyn Manson and Meshuggah. Kind of liked it. Very extreme though.

I reccomend trying out Uroboros if you're into more obscure, technical, slightly progressive sounding stuff. The Marrow of a Bone is a lot more raw and probably heavier. But if you're not into that as much then Vulgar and Withering to Death are probably their most accessible albums.

I think that they blow, personally, but I have very little taste for their style of music.

I thought they were a pop act for 13 year old girls?

Uroboros is easily their best album in my opinion.

Before that, Withering Death was probably my favorite. I love how varied their sound is, though. Kyo is ridiculous live, in a good way. Sometimes between songs, he'll do crazy stuff with his voice and a delay pedal with growls and all kinds of other things layering on top of itself. It sounds awesome, an he does is all by himself with no backing.

Agreed.

Based on their recent output I disagree.

I remember seeing a crazy music video for them when i was like 10. My cousin got me into them. I really forgot all about them. Their new stuff is really good
