I don't know, aoxomoxoalfluid... I think this music benefits from the relatively stripped down, raw production. No doubt, though, a more professional studio setting is deserved because there is clearly a boatload of talent here, but I don't think its absolutely necessary at this point. I like everything about what I've heard thus far.
These guys would sound even better if they had the chance to have the professional studio environment they deserve. They have a lot of potential, and Contagion Rite sounds to me like they listen to a lot of Earth, which is never a bad thing.
