Anyone else dig? Not sure what "genre" this fits in, somewhat unexpected hybridizations going on. I wouldn't call it (I only have V: The Doctrine Decoded) flat out amazing, but it definitely hits the spot when you are in one of *those* moods. I like the fact that the growled vocals are higher pitched and more raspy than a lot of other melodeath. The riffs get pretty disgusting in places too. Very keyboard-y too, so if you hate that stay away.
Yeah, I dig. Been aware of them for something like 7 years or so, but never gone out and grabbed an album (though hearing this stuff maybe I should). Those are heavier and "nastier" sounding than the stuff I was aware of, got this on a free cd years ago:
