These guys are one of my favs and I want to be similar to them without ripping them off obviously. What things can i practise (other than their stuff) to get a better idea of how they write and really just what do I need to know for progressive in general?

Just change key about every ten seconds lol. Actually I have no clue I'm looking for the exact same thing.

Nice... the dissentience is so awesome. Their guitars are crazy and I just wanna jam it all out but its not really workn

Just look at tabs and play (try to play) some of the songs and get a feel for some of their progressions. I love how in Blood Meat they completely change pace going into the chorus.

Go Back to their Early Stuff. Led Astray is a good place to start. Then just learn all their stuff. I did. I write stuff similar to it all the time.
Ibanez SZ320
Peavey 6505+
Marshall 1960B
Dunlop Wah
Dano EQ

their lyrics read like straight up poetry. seems like they write the lyrics without any conception of a song and then just fit the lyrics around the music. they also use very little, if any, repetition.
