Think if Black Sabbath had a baby with Tool. Heavy riffs with some prog in there to change it up. There are too many hard rock bands now that feel they have to be louder and faster to be taken seriously. These guys say screw that, and play music very reminiscent of times past while still sounding very new. You'll see complaints about them changing their sound from the previous album, but this production value makes them truly amazing. From start to finish this album hooks you in.
