Well, it's obvious after just one listen to Leviathan that these guys are the real deal. Merging technical prowess with unadulterated intensity, these guys are about as heavy as you can get. They've not forgotten the legacy left by the greats, which they make abundantly clear by taking elements of classic metal and merging them with the best from recent metal movements such as doom and progressive black metal.
To see them live is to get pummeled by pros. They've survived opening up for Slayer and played with just about every band that means a damn thing in metal right now, and they've rarely disappointed. And with Burning Brides tagging along for the ride, it looks like one hell of a night.
