Retina - Demo

Epic and foreboding are the two words that come to mind when listening to Retina.  They hail from Greensboro, North Carolina and carry a sound that at times reminds me of bands like From Ashes Rise or Tragedy, but also carry a more melodic sensibility to them than the afformentioned bands. 

Lyrically heavy, themes are abstract and seem to focus on the interaction between humans and nature. Long prose seem to tell one story through all three songs, which adds to the epic feel of the presentation. 

Song two is a little intense at just about 16 minutes long, but it's woth the ride.  Good stuff here.
