I'm sorry, but that's wrong.

Nice music, strange (mediocre?) vocals but I can get used to it. That acoustic part really resembles NEM but still creates a great atmosphere, and the instrumental parts are usually way better than the verses (just the music, vocals irrelevant). I'd love to hear an instrumental piece from you guys.
