    I'll have to spend a little more time absorbing their music. I like their approach, but I can't say anything really grabbed me as a listener.

    Pretentious guitar Jazz fusion sucks.

    Slapping on popping on guitar because "PROGRESSIVE" sucks. Not to mention tapping for the sake of tapping.

    Material that uses TR-808 drum machines just to sound "commercial" to the club crowd fucking sucks.

    They combined all of that and threw in a dude with anime hair?

    You know, I thought I was going to hate it. But it surprised me, turns out, I really fucking hated it.

    I'm sure they have a whimsical instagram presence though.

    If I wanted to hear a metal band pushing the limits with jazz fusion freakouts/pop song hybrids I would listen to Shining (not the black metal one, the good one). Who are better at both ultra weird jazz and pop and don't have Roland drum machines just to be "commercial".

    Listened to this polythia thing. Yeah they can play, but they also seem to be experts in contorting themselves up their own arseholes. Far too pretentious and smug for my tastes.
