A rather technical blend of death metal with some black and thrash influence. Some quality clean vocals thrown in occasionally as well. Archetypal Transformation was one of the better albums of 2008 and I'm pretty sure most of you guys will like this band. Give them a listen, I highly recommend the song Formative Evasion.

Awesome band. I only have their newest album and it was one of my favorites of 2008. A nice "experimental" element to their music and some ripping guitar solos.

This forum fails slightly more for not listening to said band.

I just picked up Quinta's first album, Neutrality for Defined Chaos. Holy sh!t, I might like it even more than their latest. Surprisingly, it's a bit more technical and has a greater black metal influence. Chock full of occasionally wanky YET awesome guitar solos.

This band easily deserves more recognition, listen to some songs on their Myspace and check out their MA page.
