Rating: 5 Well this sounds confused, poorly composed and at times irritating.

And just when they latch on to a cool riff, they quickly switch to something completely unrelated.

Often sounds like Gojira meets Opeth meetw brutal DM and without doing any of them particularly well. Lots of half formed ideas.

Rating: 8 I don't really get any of those impressions. I'd probably rate this a high 7, low 8 at the moment.
