So underrated. More people need to listen to them. It's a shame that most of the recent shoutout on this are just spams of to check out their own bands. i want to see actual respect and real feedback for this hardworking band.
I'm a very big fan of Misery Signals, It Prevails and Counterparts, so this was truly a finding. Just gotta love the sheer passion combined with meaningful, honest lyrics and atmospheric background. Any other band suggestions of similar kind?

If you're into Of Virtue, you are surely into Denmarks new act on the metal/hardcore scene called Shaped Like Swans as well. Denmark has a really conservative music scene, and SLS unfortunately are really one of a kind in this country. You can get their EP for free here: http://www.mediafire.com/?wjxloyc6p1ldshd or just visit their facebook page here: http://www.facebook.com/ShapedLikeSwansOfficial - I strongly recommend you to check it out.. I'm sure you'll like it as it is quite similar to Of Virtue in many ways! :)
...and I have to say that they know how to use breakdowns. They don't overdo it like many bands nowadays. These guys are truly talented with their use of acoustics intertwined with melodies and heaviness.
Last track is just epic. Whole of Heartsounds is epic I suppose. It reminds me a lot of Mirrors by Misery Signals, in terms of the atmosphere that the music generates and also the structure of the album.
