Enlist Today! (2013) is a wild instrumental journey through psychedelic landscapes decorated with mixed meters, dynamics, unexpected genre shifts, and a palette that spans 40 years of rock and metal.
Our album opens with "The Schillinger Escape Plan," a traditional prog composition that whisks you through passages reminiscent of Tool and Black Sabbath with hints of Pink Floyd. "Ace High" continues the rocking as we slide into a psychedelic fusion of proggy classic rock and metal.
Our doom and technical metal influences finally spawn into "The Sludgery," an epic journey through sludge filled riffs, dance grooves, and atmospheric textures something out of a Spaghetti Western. I think we consider it the iconic track of Enlist Today!
To lighten things up, our heavy straight-ahead track "World 8-4" blends Black Metal, with influences such as Black Sabbath and Deftones, rounding out the form with some good old Porcupine Tree inspired straight ahead rock.
At this point you probably need to rest. That's great, in "Your Body is Responding Incredibly Well (to the Pregnancy)" we tried to chill out a bit for some Radiohead atmosphere and keep the music steady and groovin. "Emerald City" is the only track on the album with a tiny bit of vocals (Nathan Lincoln) a glimpse of more to come.
