I was introduced to this band by a metal fan, who thought I might like this synth-y sound. He was correct. This sounds like space travel, but also has good enough production not to make it sound like 80's synth music. I love some of the metallic influences, and and progression of the album. I saw them live with Periphery a year or so ago, and they were my favorite act.
Favorite track: Datadealer.
I don't know how I've been missing these guys until now, but better late than never, right? They blend these mellow, synthwavey melodies with staples of post-rock, and sometimes even math rock. It's an honest album full of emotions that are communicated very clearly to the listener. One of those records that hook you from the very first seconds.
Favorite track: Monolith.
