Haunting melodies, stunning chord changes, fresh rhythms, healing lyrics, blazing riffs, amazing vocals, and an incredible journey from the most joyous beauty to the most shocking intensity. Step into their world and feel every possible emotion available to the heart, mind, and soul. I love this band! “
