Some great technical ability, some dynamic range in songwriting, some unexpected elements; all these ingredients for a masterpiece are found on Where Owls Know My Name. Yet the owls are not what they seem, right?

First track, bitches.

That is some tasty instrumentation. I'm always most impressed by their first single and the remainder of the album is usually a disappointment in comparison. I hope it's different this time around.

Amazing album imo. Silent Life, Terrestria III: Wither, Hollow and Death Is Real stand out for me.

Great album from my fellow Pennsylvanians. I remember seeing them open for more popular bands in small PA venues. It's awesome to see them get the credit they deserve, this is their best album to date.

Great solos, very gentle saxophone, and great riffs. I love their songwriting. First Tech Death, I listen more than 3 times and I even found some favorites

Slightly less mind-nimbingly boring than usual tech-death. Chances are these guys will learn to write actual songs one day.

I'm really trying to like this album but to me it's just another run of the mill sound that many other bands have already reproduced. Add something 'different' or...anything!
This alone would have allowed this one to separate from the pack.


I will keep trying tho. Just gotta try to ignore Slugdge to do so.
