A progressive metal band from Kristinehamn, Sweden, active between 1993 and 2009. They were formed in 1993 by Jesper Liveröd, Linus Jägerskog and Patrik Hultin, with guitarists Robert Reinholdz and Jonas Rydberg joining later. The band was known to add progressive elements to their metal music making them different from most of the other metalcore bands. Their vocals were a mixture of melodic vocals (Reinholdz) and screaming (Jägerskog). They were last signed to Relapse Records.
Boston-based singer/songwriter Jonah Burstein has been compared to John Mayer, Dave Matthews, and Steve Miller. A member of the alternative rock band Seven Days, Burstein released an EP of solo home recordings as Rough Demos in 2004.
