If you like Numic, you should also check out: Tool
On "Dominion", Numic remind me quite a bit of Tool. They definitely aren't a clone band, but there are distinct points throughout the CD which scream Tool. Besides the Tool influence, there are moments of nu-metal, progressive metal, and various other genres (some great jazz-style drumming on a few tracks). Overall an excellent release that culminates in the excellent hidden track during which they play the Super Mario Bros. theme song in a sort of jazz/funk/metal fashion. Go on, check 'em out.
During the recording for Recrudescent Feed, the vocalist left the band, and the band split up for a while. However, they finally got a new singer and finished the record. I'm hard pressed to hear a difference in the vocals. There's still a lot of Tool influence, but the new one is a little heavier overall.
I have yet to hear the debut or the recently released "One Above the Heretics".
