Definitely one of the best homebrewed bands that's been posted on ST:metal.

Definitely sounds like some older Dream Theater, real proggy ****. In fact, if I wasn't watching to the video, I'd say it was Dream Theater, only without the gay vocals and ridiculously overly fast guitar solos.

And damn, I loved the bass playing. Keep it up!

One last thing, were you recording live?
Wow, thanks! I appreciate it.

This video is footage of all of us recording in the studio for that particular song. Then, to make the video, we sifted through a few days of footage and found each take that actually went on the recording, and sync'd that up with the studio audio, or the actual song.

So, if a riff took 5 takes to get right, and the take that went on the final song was take #3, we went through the videos and put take #3 in the video, so it would ideally sync perfectly up to the audio. It might look like we just dry-played in our bedroom to the song but it was actually the recording footage, lol.

Edit: Oh yeah, you guys are very tight. How long have you been together?
The keyboardist and I have been playing together since age 4, where we both took piano lessons (I guess that counts?)

We all went to the same high school, and we've been in a lot of other bands together in previous years. I dunno man, about 10 years for all of us, we all grew up as kids together playing music, literally. High school jazz bands to Metallica cover bands, and everything inbetween.

The guitarist is a damn dirty hippy who is actually a drummer. He is majoring in music in college (percussion) and he has an icky beard.

Hey guys,

Old *** thread here I know, but wanted to update since it got a good response last year..

We're releasing our second album "Altered State" under Nightmare Records this September, and we just released the official video trailer for the album so wanted to invite everyone to check it out. Also, we do have a vocalist now (keyboardist took over those duties) and are not an instrumental band. Same style though for sure:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DGxkBcYMdF8

Hope you guys enjoy and will be able to check the album out in several months. I'll keep the thread updated with the actual release date (which hasn't been announced yet, but I do know it's September).

-Mark

Moved close to 900-1,000 copies since its release 15 months ago, got us some really great reviews, interviews, and landed us the deal mentioned above, so pretty well I guess! Pretty stoked by the response. Took awhile to really get going though considering it's genre, haha.

And thanks man, really glad you liked the video.

Awww...well thanks for listening regardless. Each song on the album I must say is drastically different, so I'm sure you'd like at least something.

Just bought Absolute Zero off itunes, not sure if I'd pick up the second though, not a fan of the vocals from what I've heard on the trailer. Definitely digging the instrumental stuff from AZ, however, nice job.

Just posting to let everyone know the release date for our new album is officially set for October 12th and we've officially signed to Nightmare Records.

Here is the official press release (ignore the Oct. 26th statement, it's the 12th)

And thanks Scott for grabbing Absolute Zero. I'm pretty sure you'll like something on the new album!
