First heard of them awhile ago on the old Pantera.com forum. So I checked some samples on cdnow.com and liked them. Eventually picked up the latest album 'Clayman'. Suprisingly when I first listened to it, I didn't like it at all. Too power metal for my tastes. So I just tossed in my collection to collect dust. I came back to it and slowly started listening to it over and over and pretty soon it was fast becoming one of my favorite albums of all time. Then I picked up the 'Colony' album. Same thing happened. Took awhile to literally grab me by the ears and tell me "WE ARE YOUR FAVORITE BAND!!!!". I just recently purchased their live album with some birthday money I received. I knew nearly all the songs on it, so I enjoyed it the first time I put it in, while finding some older songs off some albums I don't have yet. The song 'Jotun' off of 'Whoracle' is absolutely Killer. If I haven't said it enough already, "I love this band to death". Only wish I could see them live.
