Read a review that thier CD "Leviathan" was the second coming of "metallica and rush combined."

While I didn't know there was a first coming of Metallica and Rush, I want you're opinions. I plan on picking the disc up today anyway, but if theres been a huge misunderstanding and it sucks, let me know.

I checked it out. Its pretty good. I see the Metallica and rush comparison. The vocals wer a litlle lackluster, but other than that I really liked it.

One of the best metal bands around today.

If you like Isis, Dillinger Escape Plan, Neurosis and of course the brilliant High On Fire, you will assuredly like these fella's.

I don't know how to class these guys as Leviathan, their latest album, moves on a bit from their previous album. Last I saw them regarded as was Math Metal and Metalcore and even Prog Metal.

Check out:
Iron Tusk
Blood and Thunder
Elephant Man
Workhorse

I've seen them mentioned a few times before but couldn't find a thread. Have a blast team...

hmm..i just checked em out. not bad. i wouldnt say they're the next metallica. they arent bad though. i like "crusher destroyer" and "seabeast". their guitar work is pretty good. im not too big on the vocals, but musically they're a pretty sweet band. i can see why theyd be good live.
