I was really hoping to catch them live on the Alcest/Enslaved tour. To see firsthand if they lived up to the hype. While there certainly not metal in a conventional sense,thier album has grown on me,can definately hear a BOC/Mercyful Fate influence. A breath of fresh air imo. More and more bands from Europe are running into these visa problems in the last few years. Oh well,an extra long Enslaved set i'll gladly take.
