Fables From a Mayfly: What I Tell You Three Times Is True
Released: Jun 2007
Label: Serjical Strike Records/Universal Republic Records
The Texas-bred modern-prog(ish) metal band's 2007 debut for Serj Tankian's Serjical Strike label offers thought-provoking structures and the occasional left-field vocal, but for the most part, this music is not designed to freak anyone out. Not necessarily a bad thing, as the hooks are certainly worth singing along with, and when frontman Darroh Sudderth does his sky-scraping Rik Emmett impersonation, things can get pretty fun (see: "Walls of Jericho").
