Dear sweet Lord, it’s been a while since I’ve done one of these! If you’re new to Heavy Blog or do not remember, this is where the highlights of our music submissions end up for you to feast your ears on! We hope you enjoy!

This time on Hits From The Inbox we have progressive metal band The Ciem Show. They’re sound is accurately self-described as “Progressive / Experimental Metal with Doomy tendencies… recommended for fans of Meshuggah, Devin Townsend, Arcturus, Ulver,King Crimson, and Faith No More.” Niiiiice. Their vocalist is certainly channeling some Strapping Young Lad-era Devin Townsend. Check out their album Lifelike Scenes below in its entirety.

If you dig the album (and you know good and well that you do!), you can download the album for free here.

The band are unfortunately having trouble finding a drummer. Here’s what bassist/guitarist Christopher had to say about their situation:

We are located in New Jersey and are currently suffering from a common, but deadly disease: Currently Seeking Drummer Syndrome (CSDS for short.) We have been suffering from CSDS for the better part of three years now, and if a cure is not found soon enough, we may never be able to perform live. Ever. Our previous drummer succumbed to an even more deadly disease, Apathia Sleeplatea Headupassia (in layman’s terms: laziness with a bit of the crazies), shortly after recording his parts for Lifelike Scenes..

Ouch. Are you a drummer in or around New Jersey? Hit them up on Facebook if you’re interested!
