I first heard these guys about 5 years ago, but never went looking for any of their albums (had a feeling that it would be very difficult to find in Japan), but about three weeks ago, I found their album "Fragmentary Evidence" in a used CD store in Shinjuku. And I remembered liking what I had heard from them, so I bought it.
I've listened to the album several times since I bought it and I gotta say that they totally rule. I remember there was someone on ss.org (and on here I think) who used Augury as their avatar all the time (but I can't remember who it was ).
Anyone else like them?
If you want to know before you listen, they are basically progressive death metal:

I've got both albums...good stuff. Some of the songs seem to run together, though...like, you can't tell where one ends and the next one starts.
Also, is anyone else reminded of a cross between Jari Mäenpää and Devin Townsend's voices?
