Caught these guys last night at a local club (budda was there too) and I was very impressed. I hadn't heard of them before yesterday, but checked out their myspace page and was immediately hooked. After a bit of research, I found that Devin Townsend produced their album, and while it's a completely different sound for him, his genius pays off again.
The music is heavy, but dynamic, lots of soft sections building into big epic sections. Lots of vocal harmonies (which they pulled off live very well). Some excellent guitar tones live too.
This won't be for everyone, but I think some people here will love this stuff.

(listening to the album start to finish, when it rolls around to this it's awesome)
That was quite cool, not 100% sold on the vocals but they're hardly off-putting, good stuff.
