my band takes influences from a bunch of different music and bands and stuff. we've released a couple of instrumentals recently, check em out at: http://soundcloud.com/viceorvirtue. we also have a facebook page if you're interested. ...list is albums that influence our sound greatly.
Most obvious influence, it's got the groove and the atmosphere + the clean/harsh vocal combination.
|2||Amia Venera Landscape|
The Long Procession
More the ambient stuff and build-ups from this.
The Concept of Dreaming
Djent parts and grooves
The Jester Race
We're all kind of melodeath nuts at heart so there's some in flames-y guitar leads sprinkled here and there
Fear of a Blank Planet
My drumming mainly.
Atmosphere + groove

Ex-Periphery vocalist Chris Baretto's new band. It's fucking awesome. And our vocalist has been compared to him at times (at least his cleans) Check this shit out if you haven't.
Spacey-leads, ambience, general awesomeness
Probably the closest thing to our sound that we listen to. But we try to make our music more centered around atmosphere and melody rather than groove.
Clashy yet melody sweeping chords, melodic metalcore (and some hardcore) influence.
