Secret Arms - New Colonies
You're in for a long ride here, as most of the songs in this collection break the four minute mark. There's some very interesting melody within these songs and the vocals have a nice range between screaming and singing. There are tempo changes all across the board and I must admit to liking when this band really plays on the upbeat (see "Thieves" for the best example of this).
You can't shake a stick at the musicianship here as all three of these guys seems to demonstrate a good knowledge of how to get around their respective instruments. I wish the songs were a bit shorter at times, but I imagine in a live setting it most likely has a pretty powerful execution.
Have a listen here.
