Training for Utopia - Falling Cycle (Tooth & Nail)
This short EP is just a window into what soon will be; one of the most intense chaotic neo-metal albums to ever be released. This is the band that makes Slayer look wimpy.

Soul Impalement" (3:26)
This is pure chaos! There is no better description for Training for Utopia than utter chaos. The only band I can think to compare them to are the Delinger Escape Plan or perhaps Neurosis. Despite being on Tooth & Nail's side label Solid State, I do not think that Training for Utopia are a "Christian band," in that their lyrics are not of the typical "turn or burn" variety. At 22:10 in the last track, there is a hidden track that is untitled.
Training for Utopia/Zao (Solid State)
Operandi" -Training for Utopia (4:32)
Well, if this were a competition I'd give Training for Utopia the trophy for the most intense band. However both bands are pretty intense. The two bands combines make for one violent sounding EP.
