    I randomly happened across this band. A very interesting blend of styles.

    Neat! I love successfully surprising mixes of styles.

    I get bored so easily, lol. :D

    I have never really gotten into any Asian bands. I don't know what it is, but I just don't like that Eastern sound. Plus, many of the bands who choose to sing in English have a hard time with the language...

    What cracks me the heck up about the first song is that there are these little snippets that sound like they come from the creatures in the movie The Dark Crystal.:D

    I was really loving the last song until the boing-ing sounds come in and the song started to sound like grasshoppers hopping all over the place. I can't take it seriously as metal. It's kind of sad because the musical elements are really good until they ruin it with their stupid vocals and synth crap.

    I LOVE the traditional Asian influence and I love the rock-out factor but the vocals and whacky extras are so strange, it makes it very hard to take these songs seriously. And the growling in the background just isn't sexy and I like my metal sexy.
