Only one other time in my life (The Dear Hunter) has a band completely drawn me in through their music. Every detail, from the vocal melodies, to the screams, the guitar play, the effects is perfectly executed. Big things await these guys.
Tree of Tongues is a testament to one thing only: Exotic Animal Petting Zoo simply don't know how to add interesting metalcore to their eclectic blend of post-rock. The best tracks here are the calmest ones.
These guys are talent at their full potential ... its rare to see what musicians with real passion can do these days...the new album was a complete earfuck....heaviness of dillinger escape plan, yet as melodic as a perfect circle... 5/5 personally
