Just came across this band while being bored. Their guitarist seems very technical. What do you guys think. I did some searching and hadn't found any threads on these guys. There song titles are funny though. Behold... The Arctopus The ones on myspace arn't my favoroite but they are still pretty good.

Yeah, discovered them early last year, listened to them for hours but soon forgot about them.

Why do we feel it's necessary to yak about bullsh*t in order to be comfortable?

That's when you know you found somebody special. When you can just shut the f*ck up for a minute, and comfortably share silence.

Yet another band who puts technical ability before songwriting... not interested.

meh, i think they really put thought into their songwriting, they compose their stuff on sheet music, you can view it on the tab, you can see the effort put into creating each song. And the guitarist is really holding back, he could start shredding like crazy if he wanted to but mostly its about the riffs.

OMGZ WE PLAY T3H UB3R TECHXNICAL LOLOLOL!



To the untrained ear it sounds like technical wanking, but its thoughtfully composed and bursting with energy. I can definitely see how someone would say that on first listen, but give them a chance. I find they are like Meshuggah in the way that at first it sounds like a cacophony but after some dedicated listening you realize that they offer something special that no other type of music has.

These guys, it's like they such but there good. That Warr bass rocks and they are all really good I think just, well, it's alot like jazz, you have to develope an ear for it. Only for the enlightened ones

I like em. I just got the new album and it's really good. Technical but they've really stepped up the songwriting. "Canada" has to be one of my favourite songs ever.

Completely agree. Couldn't dislike this band more.
if you have belief in ur soul and jesus you can do anything

Heard 'em before, and I love 'em. But that's just me.. I like weird stuff, and I could see how most people would be turned off from a band that focuses more on a song's technical proficiency than its melody.

How can anyone like this solo? It makes Kerry King sound structured.


and his guitar tone makes my ears bleed. He's extremely sloppy when he's not tapping. The bassist is amazing, but I cant stand them. I'll be seein them at MDF this year, but I just want to see the bassist play haha.

Yeah, because we all know that if something is technical that must mean they don't care about anything else.

I saw a video of them playing once. It sounded awful. I respect their ability to play technical music, especially the guy with the Warr guitar, but it sounded really bad.
