Exotic Animal Petting Zoo
 
I don't see why these guys don't already have a thread about them on here. Their music is genius and they put on one hell of a show. Their most current album Tree of Tongues far surpasses their past effort I Have Made My Bed In Darkness which in itself was ground breaking in my opinion. Tree of Tongues shows a more matured, better structured sound while still maintaining that sound of insanity.

They just finished a tour with Arsonist get all the Girls and are (edit) playing a few stops on BoyHitsCars "Embrace the Fire" tour.

Check out their Audio Tree Live session in the replies.

Tree Of Tongues is a strong AOTY contender. They remind me in a way of Deftones because of how perfectly they blend heavy parts with soft ones. i'm watching that audiotree session right now and wow, Pharmakokinetic sounds even more intense in its live version.
edit : wtf "starting a new tour with Boy hits Car"

Saw them about 4 years ago and I was pleasantly surprised so I bought their cd. Never really kept tabs on them though. Cool to see that they're still around.

oh i don't doubt you but it's weird to think they're still around, and touring with bands that sound nothing like them at all.

Woot, they have a thread now!

I got to see them for free here in Seattle a few weeks ago because I won tickets to their show. Lame crowd, awesome performance.

Tree of Tongues is one of my favs for the year.

My friend told me to check them out and I couldn't get into them, but that was over a year ago so maybe I'll like it now

their first full lenght isn't really easy to get into as it is often all over the place. the new album sounds more cohesive as a whole
