my knowledge

unfortunately this knowledge is wrong. this has nothing to do with extreme metal or metalcore. Just because someone mixes Postal Service, Bjork, and Thursday influences doesn’t make them experimental.

They have absolutely no electronic music influences; you must have meant electronica, at best.
