    Easily one of the best technical metal songs ive heard...Too bad these guys dont have enough motivation to release music more often.

    Insane time signatures. Paul would make a good music teacher.

    I could do without the chant, but the chorus more than makes up for it.

    Anyone else think that chant is a little unnerving and creepy?

    Om shrim maha lakshmiye swaha. Sanskrit words there. Whatelse do you want if you have Hindu mantras in the chorus?

    “OM SHRIM MAHA LAKSHMIYEI SWAHA” is a vaishnava/vedic/hinduist mantra that can be used whenever we feel we need a dose of good fortune and luck, whether material or spiritual. It is said to have the ability to bring good fortune and open up unexpected possibilities. Lakshmi is the goddess of abundance and good fortune. She attends to our material needs in general, but can also bring fortune and abundance of a spiritual kind.

    I still think that Paul Masvidal looks kind of like Jake Gyllenhaal [2]
