Ok, so who kidnapped Tera Melos?  Not too long ago, the ever-rambunctious group release their debut album, which was filled with spastic riffs and wavering time signatures.  Since then, their progression had been somewhat obvious, or at least not a complete transformation, like the one that you are about to hear.  Perhaps they were influence […]
