Technical? Check. Odd time signatures? Check. Influences from multiple genres such as neo-classical, metal, and poppy singing? Check. Sudden shifts in style? Check. Use of pianos and keyboards? Check.
If I had to say what I think they sound like, I'd have to say they sound like progressive metalcore to me.
I'd never heard these guys before and, to be honest, I don't know what to think about them, but I can definitely see the progressive label.
