Album Notes
On the strength of this - their debut 2004 EP, the band quickly built up an international cult following. An enthusiastic early response to this EP from promoters and DJs led to frequent club and radio play in the UK, Brazil, Russia, Germany, France, and across the US and Canada.

Intentionally ambiguous in both meaning and style, this is a music hewn in dirty ice, eroded by bloody history, and shrouded in the bleary, blustery mystery of the present. Guitars alternately grate, gibble, and blanket. Rhythms undulate, echo, march on. Stories about the dead and the barely living. Shadowplay (RU) calls it "nervous, hysterical, explosive". Punk Planet praises the recording as "intelligible and beautiful ... easily holds a place amongst the past greats". Indygoth exclaims, "Oh Canada....thank you for making such dark fine music!" Rock critic Mick Mercer, who ranks Astonishing Tales in his Top Ten list for 2004, proclaims it as "standing indie expectations on their heads...thrashing out a brand new sound which is head and shoulders above typical indie".
