I just got their album today and felt compelled to make a thread about them.

Has anyone else heard of them or heard the album?

I think they've got a really good sound going on, kind of like Cynic but not really a clone or anything...as I listen right now they're having a bit of an Opeth moment.

Anyone have any thoughts?

I advise anyone who likes progressive metal with jazz elements to take a serious listen; it's really good stuff.

And one of the guitarists is also in Anchorhead

Anyone else getting tired of WE ARE METAL AND JAZZ music?

Not yet: I still enjoy both so the fusion of the two (which, I will admit, is more often that not just prog metal with some jazzy sounding solos) is good with me

Its just being flooded with bands who's "fusion" is far to soulless and simply being fusion for the sake of being so called progressive.

Step 1: Go to Metal-Archives
Step 2: Search Jazz or Fusion
Step 3: Click and enjoy your flooded and abused genre.

According to MA LS is just technical/progressive rather than jazz

I wasn't that impressed to be honest. If anything it sounded like it should be in the War of the Worlds musical...

Eh, there aren't that many. Compare this to Black Metal or Death Metal and there are virtually none.
