They have a "Sound Vader" look to them as well.

Also, a hint of Paiste 2002 to their look as well.

I found a video on youtube (by a guy I believe in on this forum) and he said they have been said to have a similar sound to the Paiste 2002's but are thinner. That would be pretty cool if that is how they sound
