    Til The Last Beat Of My Heart

    their music's magic, so atmospheric and deliciously dark and well before it's time. alot of their songs sound more cutting edge and fresh than alot of todays music, music doesn't get much better than them in my opinion... i will love them "til the last beat of my heart"
