Wow, the drums on this stuff is crazy man! Its really technical too, great job.

After listening several times through, i have to say you did a great job Mike. The drums are absolutley brilliant, i LOVE the fills you are using, its great.

And the vocals! Is someone else singing behind James? It sounds like someones growling under the main vocals at times.

Holy SHIT!!!

That completely floored me. God damn. That is fucking technical!!! How is James going to sing over that? :D

Sick sick sex. Love it. Wish this was a full length, from this soundclip it sounds like a worthy contender to the album of the year contest.

Holy fucking shit!!!! This new stuff is amazing!!! It's much darker, heavier, and more technical than ACOG. I dig. The only complaint I have is that there are still 10 more minutes that I must hear.

Thanks a lot dude! As far as the vocals, we took a different approach this time around. Instead of just one main vocal track and a second for backing vocals, we had Jim record 4 vocal tracks simultaneosly throughout all the songs. We really like how it worked!

We've had a couple different live lineups over the last 3 years. We've done 3 tours, mostly east coast stuff and the south/midwest. The live lineups don't usually last that long lol, Jim and I work great together but when other people get involved things usually go to hell for some reason. Maybe the 2 of us are just a pain in the ass to work with haha. I've got about 14 full gigs on tape, just home video footage, but I'd really like to release a dvd someday. It wouldn't be fancy at all, just totally raw live home video shit, but I think it would be cool. If we're able to get on a couple decent tours next summer I plan to video tape every single show.

Amazing man. Do you plan to make some of that footage available to us before the possible release of a DVD? Just a short clip or something. There's a fairly slim chance to see you guys live right now, living in Europe and all, so it would be greatly appreciated.

Yeah, I'd be happy to do that. It may take me some time because all the footage I have is on tapes and I need to figure out how to transfer that into a quicktime or windows media format, but I'll start going through the vids a little bit over the next couple months. I'd like to put a full live song from one of the shows up - the footage is all pretty raw, total "Cliff 'Em All" style, but you'll get the idea.

You hope we dig it? Holy shit...that's brutal right there. The drum and guirtar work are amazing to say the least. Brutal, technical, yet still melodic, and heavy as all hell! Now that's what I lvoe to hear in music. And you guys play it so well. The vocals did turn out great I must say. I'm glad you're keeping the track up, it will give us something to listen to in the meantime! A DVD in the future would be a great idea, even if it's taped videoclips. I never got a chance to see you live on your tour, so somelive footage would be cool to see.

Thanks a lot everybody, I'm really glad people are liking it! BTW - I'm working on putting a couple live video clips up on our website. It may take a couple weeks, but I have a couple shows in particular where the audio isn't too bad. Again, the stuff was all recorded on home video camera so it's not exactly ultra high quality, but I think it'll be cool.

Thanks man, will do. It looks like I'll be recording the drums for the next full-length around the second week of January, so that will probably be out by April or May. Jim and I have started talking about touring plans, and it looks like we're gonna be touring pretty heavily this summer. We've never done a full US tour and we've never played Canada either, so at the very least we will make an effort to do both of those things. We're also going to see about Europe, but that may take some doing. We'll be taking care of some contractual stuff the next few months as well, which may help our touring situation....Willowtip is an awesome label, but we're pretty much on our own as far as getting tours goes. Other labels will be able to assist us with that, and that's one thing we will be working on as well.

Wow, the possibility of a European tour really made my day. I hope the best for you guys, I hear you've had some trouble touring in the past because you were basically a band in a SUV or something along those lines :p

Have fun touring! :)

Mike I am pretty lucky because I live in Atlanta, and you guys have come through there like six times in like four months last summer. Seeing you guys never gets old and I cant wait to see those videos. You guys did some gigs (one at swayzes) and one with mortician and others that really blew me away. I am really anxious for this new Disc. I cant wait to give it a ton of spins over the next few months.
