Port Townsend, WA, USA
Start with the Jane Doe album. Kurt Ballou's guitar-work is simply exhilarating. Singer Jacob Bannon's banshee wail is a welcome change-up from the Cookie-Monster growl of 99% of the metal out there.
Cons: Except for some great breakdowns... not the best lyrics overall. Thankfully Bannon's screams are unintelligible.
