They're okay. They sound a lot better live though.

They were a great opener during the Metal Blade 25th anniversary tour.

I saw them open up for Cannibal Corpse back in October. The from album "From Your Grave" sounds alot like At the Gates with some growls thrown in and better soloing, and heavier overall. The new album, eh not so much.
I want to go as far to the edge without going over. Out on the edge, you can see all kinds of different things.

They actually have 2 threads if you search for them. Great band, I was listening to World Divides yesertday and forgot how much I loved that solo.

Awesome band. I much prefer From Your Grave over RotP however. Very catchy and great riffs/solos.

From Your Grave has better songwriting, Riders of the Plague has better riffs and production.

I looooooooooooooove World Divides and Merciless.
#14
^ Haha I love you guys, I better be able to see you live eventually.

Merciless is my favorite song too Scourge.

It's awesome that people are finding them, but there's already a million threads.

It Should Be Easy To Get Into Them, It Was For Me, They're Not Like The Other Melodeath Bands That Get Boring Quickly.

I think I'm going to that show with a few friends. If there's anyone from here that's going we need to meet up.

Also, I just listened to these guys for the first time. Pretty damn awesome.
I hope it's cold, everyday, where you are.

It's quite a catchy album. I'm not sure which I enjoy more though, FYG or RotP.

They have some of the best solos I've heard recently.
