If you haven't heard any of their studio material yet, definitely check out their early albums with their old vocalist. Particularly "Altered Genesis". SUPERB death metal with tasty riffs around every corner
Unfortunately, I'm missing this tour tonight in AZ due to financial issues. Which SUCKS because you're absolutely right, they haven't been to the west coast in a long damn time. I became a fan in 2003, and they haven't been here since then at least.
