Capharnaum

Capharnaum was formed in Connecticut by brothers Jason and Jordan Suecof, apparently at the ages of 13 and 9 (!). By 1995 a lineup stabilized and two years later a self-produced, self-released album, Realities Only Fantasized, was put out, after which the brothers relocated to Florida and recruited a new lineup featuring guys from several respected underground metal acts. Fractured, the band's 2004 album, embodies the tag "technical death metal", as the songs twist and turn with complex riffing and insane drumming from Jordan, still a young man though obviously he's no longer nine years old. A slight downside is one that is common to technical bands, that being the fact that individual songs are difficult to pick out under the deluge of frequently changing twisted riffs, but it's forgiveable here as the musicianship is top-notch. Jason is currently climbing the charts as a producer, having produced albums by Monstrosity and Trivium among others, which no doubt explains how members from both of those bands appear here. Coupled with his recent involvement with Charred Walls Of The Damned and the fact that several of the other guys have other bands, it's not clear where this band is headed.
