Now the first song and video from the album, “Aimless Arrow,” has been released. On first listen, it’s not as frantic as “Dark Horse,” the first taste of 2009’s Axe to Fall, yet […]

New & Noteworthy, August 28th – Onward Into Battle

Posted by on August 28, 2012

Last week, I promised a very strange thing. And while I’m not going back on my word, I’m still wondering why I put it this way: We answer the question once and for all of who would win in a popularity contest between gothic, doom-influenced progressive metal, and spastic, technicality-riddled mathcore.
