Then the first song came online and I was honestly disappointed. I felt like it had potential but fell kinda flat so I pretty much stopped paying much attention to them.
Today I saw that their album was streamable so I decided to give it another chance and boy am I glad I did. The vocals are a lot more varied than that first song implied and the riffs are delicious all the way through. Although I'm not expecting it to end up on my Top 10 of the year it'll definitely show up as one of my top surprises. Honestly, just give it a chance if you like Mastodon, proggy hardcore and riffs for days.
As soon as the first listen finished I threw it on again so that should be a pretty good recommendation considering I paused Citadel by Ne Obliviscaris for this.
Also, if you're not already listening to Citadel you are doing yourself a great disservice.
