Fairly straight forward rock/hard rock, probably not quite “metal” enough for the Mosh Pit, but it does have a good commerical hard rockin’ sound.

Melodic death metalcore type stuff these guys have always seemed to keep their music a bit closer to the gothenburg sound than some other american metalcore type bands… great stuff.

Melodic death sort of super group featuring Speed from Soilwork on main vox… and speaking of soilwork… sounds just like older (not super old) soilwork… Great stuff!

Sludgey stoner metal, with some good catchy grooves and riffage

Witness [Advance Tracks]
A kind of laid back rock/prog rock. melodic, some good emotion with a little push into a little heavier djent, leading to more of an atmospheric porcupine tree sound
