Same members, although the one came across as a bit arrogant on an Indian metal forum I used to be a moderator on when he said they were the best band in the world, it is still some cool stuff. It's more straight forward death metal in the vein of Grave, and their whole discography is online for free with their permission.
Yep, I know about 'em but didn't bother to listen to anything of their fame. The further life goes on - the more I realise I've had enough of straightforward death metal (and I also tired of things like Grave). I prefer something more unusual and creative, and TPH is the case.

Even ZP has improved since leaving DF though. The only problem I have with either DF or I AM I nowadays are the fans who - THREE years after ZP left - are still saying he should be back in ZP. Did they see Wacken 2009? Clearly not.
Yeah, I'm kinda glad they're not much of a thing anymore. That era from 2006-2007 where everyone was like OMG FASTEST AND MOST TECHNICAL BAND EVAAAAAA about them got annoying at times. Seems they're a little better-sounding now, and definitely still power metal, but not my thing. 80s US power metal and the early Euro acts are where it's at for me.
Symphonic Power Melodic Death Metal... stuff. Death grunts and growls, clean male vocals, clean female vocals, orchestra strings, piano, synths, choir... what more could you ask for. So heavenly to me!
