Ooh this could be interesting, though their bassist (if you can call that thing a bass) was a pretty big drawcard for me listening to Behold the Arctopus.

No wait, I'm listening to his myspace now, f***ing amazing. Now playing Direwolf.

Hey Cynic, did that link work or did you find his myspace by searching? Because less than 2 hours after posting, I'm getting "Invalid Friend ID. This user has either cancelled their membership, or their account has been deleted."
