Origin: Fort Collins, CO, USA
Genres: Melodic Death Metal


In the span of 6 years this Colorado mob has risen to the top flight of American extreme metal bands. Metal Blade wisely snapped up the band after an indie EP in 2008, and two albums in 2010 and 2012 laid the foundation for their 2014 record, Elements Of The Infinite. Elements seemlessly melds the best of technical death metal, melodic death metal, and even some traditional prog metal into one monster of a disc. The songs are dense but not suffocating, riffs are everywhere, the productions is sterling. Hard to see how the band can improve on Elements, but even if they don't, their metal resumé thus far is mightly impressive.
