Creative Loafing Cribnotes "From Exile isn't really a metal band per se. Metal is certainly an influence, and "prog" applies, but both terms walk all over the subtle intricacies of the music. It's fast and complex, but the music's many working parts don't draw attention to themselves — the music has more in common with Fugazi than Rush, and it's more on akin to Kylesa than King Crimson.This dynamic really stood out in a bleak, but expansive cover of Nine Inch Nail's "Ruiner." -Chad Radford
