Denver-based death metallers have started their career on a strong note with the impressive debut Endlessly in Motion. An adept mix of forward thinking, technical and constantly interesting death metal with a few feathers plucked from melodic death's sense of melody and harmony. Vocally this sounds somewhat like the bastard child of Björn "Speed" Strid and Devin Townsend, not to to mention the band aren't afraid to explore and exploit ambient atmospherics in a subtle yet effective manner. Something for pretty much everyone I would think.

Not too impressed by this... Well executed but nothing interesting/new for me. Shame.

+1 to Moth sounding like Gojira. I hear the Devin Townsend similarities too, the vocalals make the same wall of sound effect that DT's have had.

Wow, this is great. Thank you JOOE for the staff pick (way back when, I know ).

There is this subtle vibe of almost... alt metal? It's partially in the rhythms and partially in the vocals. These are NOT typical death vocals by any means! They remind me of a more extreme version of what you have in bands like Klone or Nero Di Marte. Nice album!
