Anyone heard of these guys? They're fairly new (only released one album thusfar). Anyway, they're a melodeath band that must've liked At The Gates alot, because they sound quite similar to them. If you like true melodeath, I suggest you check them out.

My weirdest dream would have to be when I dreamed that I met this chick I really liked and wanted to practice sex, so I practiced on some guy I met at a gas station...that was pretty screwed up.

And with good reason too.

The Absence rock.

At The Gates seem to be much more dissonant. Of course, I'm only basing this statement on Slaughter of the Soul, so I might be wrong.

Maybe it's just me, but a lot of melodeath sounds the same to me.

^I think it's because they all use the 3rd harmonies. Plus, alot of bands use the same riff style.


Oh yeah, and The Absence are pretty cool. I might see them on the 14th with Vader and all them. Yay for me

Man, they kicked ass. IMO, they deserved a bigger crowd, as there was like 40 people at most. We didn't get a 100+ crowd until around 8:30-9ish when Graveworm went on I think. Anyway, if you want the gist(sp?) of what they're like on stage, it's kind of like this:

And Peter's dreads are really cool to watch fly around when he windmills.

Me too! I was actually at my local CD store the very day that it came out, but I didn't learn about it untill that night! I'll head back out there one day (probably tomorrow) and see if they have it. If not, I'll stop by FYE to try and find it.

Go buy it now and get ready to have your nuts blown off by orgasming too much.

I might down load it this weekend. Either way, I'm getting a real copy by Christmas at the latest.
#29
Here's hoping that this band gets the recognition it deserves with thier new album I can't wait till tomorrow! I'll be passing both CD places on my way to art class tomorrow, so I should be able to snag a copy if they have one.

I've been following these guys since last spring and i still love them. The new album is really good, only listened to it a bit though. The new album has a much fuller sound, From Your Grave didn't have great production, but none-the-less was still a pretty kick ass album with sick leads.
