we've got a new track up that I think you guys will like a lot more, this one's called 'Asphyxiate', and I think it's much more up your guys alleys. The last track we upload is probably our best one, we're just waiting for some reaction from this one. Also, the beginning few seconds of it is the last few seconds of introduction, so for a much smoother transition, either listen to the last few seconds of introduction or the whole thing. thanks a lot guys, let me know what you think.

I'm diggin' it a lot. And the vocals, too. Which usually suck with young bands. I liked the page!

thanks a lot man, spread the word as much as you can. we appreciate it so much for you even giving us a listen. we'll have the last of the 4 tracks we recorded up within a few days, it sounds great, and I think it's without a doubt the best of all everything we've got up their right now.

alright, we've released the last song off the EP onto our facebook, Amenity, and made the entire EP a free download if anyone's interested.

free download - http://www.mediafire.com/?chmadveiaez8xx5
facebook - https://www.facebook.com/pages/Crypt...4830693?ref=ts

again, let me know what you guys think. we think this track might be the best of the four we've got recorded, and we'd really appreciate if you even give a couple seconds of it a listen. thanks again, you guys rule for listening to me and to continue checking us out (especially you JD!).

I actually downloaded it. I didn't listen to all of it because I got kinda bored but it wasn't bad. Some cool riffs and shit, just need to work on the songwriting a little. Maybe even better production

thank you so much for taking the time dude, that's fucking sweet, and I appreciate the constructive criticism too, we're working on a full length as we speak, and I feel like our song writing is maturing already. and yeah, the production was a bit out of our control due to lack of money, but come time for a full length we're gonna save and record a really killer record

Ok, really good stuff man. I'm diggin' Asphyxiate. A couple things:
  • Some of the riffs seem a little sloppy and not in time. If the band was a tighter and more in rythm, it would be great.
  • The clean vocals really aren't working. Out of tune. Very... ouch. Hurts me. DO NOT WANT.
  • I understand you're going for the prog route, but sometimes I wish there was more of a chorus to write around, or at least some more notable riffs to act as a chorus. Perhaps.

But other than that... great. I really like the screams. The riffs for the most part are awesome. Reminds me a lot of Scale the Summit with the progginess. The bass fits well most times over the music, and it flows together well. Lots of promise, man! Just make sure the band is much tighter and in time together, and you have something going there. The instrumentation is great. Very Russian Circles-esque at times, too. I think you wanna keep your screams going the Neurosis-style route you're flirting with. Keep up the work; I approve!

EDIT: Riff at 5:20 in Introduction =
