@Animasta: Yeah, some great shredding on "Tetragrammatron", but "L'Via L'Viaquez" is sensational. Bedlam had some great songs ("Metatron, "Agadez" and "Soothsayer" being the best IMO), but since Amputechture they've stopped making albums that feel like great arching epics of music. That's fine, but I loved how FTM and Amputechture flowed as records, and they had some great individual pieces within the larger structure. Nocturniquet took a few listens for me to warm to, but it feels like a beefier more confident record than Octahedron, which I still liked but consider to be their weakest album.
Man, I need more people in my life I can talk to about music.
