Osamu textural riffs varying in style and tempo woven together to form dark tapestries of sound. These songs take the listener on a different journey with each play. Favorite track: Philosopher's Blade.

paul walker Varied, progressive, heavy. This gets better with each play. Absolutely helped out by the awesome artwork, too! Favorite track: Philosopher's Blade.

Jamie Gilchrist Superb. Massively heavy with enough variation in tempo and harmony to keep it constantly engaging. Awesome! Favorite track: Architects of the Void.

Chris King Behold the Monolith seem like they might have some actual musical education behind their heavy tunes. Pretty refreshing to hear a guitar solo in this kinda "sludgy" music where the guy sounds like he actually knows what the fuck he's doing. This is not to mention some pretty sophisticated riffs as well. Get this now. Favorite track: Lord of Bones.

Maxrock As expected; impressive and seemingly effortless mix of heavy guitar genres, will be coming back to this again and again. Favorite track: Philosopher's Blade.
