Staff review by
Some great technical ability, some dynamic range in songwriting, some unexpected elements; all these ingredients for a masterpiece are found on Where Owls Know My Name. Yet the owls are not what they seem, right?

These guys along with Xaon, Black Crown Initiate and Allegaeon make me appreciate all the good things about life...

Everyone's talking about the saxophone, but I find the drumming absolutely crazy!

It's ridiculous, but I get so much drowned in the atmosphere, that I can close my eyes and cry. Great album.

I had watched their clip about the owls briefly, heard the sax... not interesting, but recently, I heard the actual song, then the whole album... well, it is awesome, I really misjudged it when it came out. The next one is really interesting too. I wish I was in my 10s or 20s to pay more attention and find new bands
