Define what you mean by 'special' or 'original'? I think these guys are making the first steps into making Serbian metal worth listening and making! Yeah, you can feel many influences, clearly, from Nordic black and death metal to modern progressive, metalcore, melodic death, and even such 90's acts like FNM... I love the fact that the keys and samples are so perfectly combined in a way that is far from power metal-like cliches, still so prevalent among young melodic acts... So, give these guys a chance!
The album "From the Wrong Side of the Aperture" is officially out.
check out the myspace page if you are interested in hearing the music and maybe buying the album and/or a killer shirt with unicorns on it!
here's a hammy press write up.
