O! the Joy- Zen Mode

Daniel showed me these guys a while ago and I just got around to getting their CD because I was curious. They are definitely trying some new things in the somewhat stale "mathy" genre, throwing in solos and super repetitive parts, and a lot of the time it works. I get a Fall of Troy vibe sometime, an early Tera Melos vibe others, with maybe some like Unwed Sailor thrown in? Just give it a listen all the way through, as each song is quite different from the last.

Note: I would almost just skip the first track, as it is way more "rock" than all the others, and come back to it so that's not your first impression.

Recommended tracks: Under the Radar, We Write the Next Chapter, Zen Mode
