British progressive metal act TesseracT have announced a Spring North American tour in support of their most recent release Altered State. The band will be joined on most stops of the tour by the likes of Intronaut and Cloudkicker. The biggest news of all of this is that this will be Cloudkicker’s first live tour. Ben Sharp, the creator of Cloudkicker, will be joined on stage by the members of Intronaut to bring his music to life. On the tour, Sharp comments:

This just happened to be a time when Intronaut was free and, incredibly, I was able to get the entire month of April off from work. We have been in touch since 2010 and they had told me a few times that we could make this happen, but it wasn’t until last fall that I decided to give it an honest effort. Having the professionalism and technical proficiency of a band like Intronaut was the piece of the puzzle that finally encouraged me to pursue this since they are making it so easy for me. I know that when we show up for the first night of the tour everything will be locked in and we can just focus on having a good time.

Intronaut also weighed in:

When we first met Ben a few years back and discovered the Cloudkicker album “Beacons“, we unanimously fell in love with it and have since bugged him to let us be his band. Now it is finally happening. Intronaut is absolutely over the moon about this once in a lifetime opportunity for Cloudkicker fans to hear his stuff live. Sweetening the deal even further is the fact that we get to do the tour with our favorite British chaps in TesseracT. This tour is going to kick ass!

Breath Of The Almighty: VATTNET VISKAR Release New Music Video

Mis amigos de black metal Vattnet Viskar have released their first music video for their song “Breath Of The Almighty” which comes off of their debut full-length Sky Swallower, out now on Century Media Records. This is a very interesting video, as it’s dark and very abstract. It’s weird, but I enjoyed it. Check it out below and be sure to pick up Sky Swallower right now! Vattnet Viskar will also be hitting the road with Intronaut for a short run. You can see those dates after the jump as well.     Continue reading

Review: INTRONAUT-”Habitual Levitations”

By Lane Oliver

Back in 2010, Intronaut brought the metal world the densely textured progressive heavyweight that is the critically lauded Valley of Smoke. The sludge-metal inspired grumbles of Void and Prehistoricisms were greatly expanded into vast musical feats full of cinematic progressive rock inspired moments with nice post-metal like creamy centers. Valley of Smoke is considered by some as Intronaut’s magnum opus because of the new explorative sound they indulged themselves in. But Intronaut are not done excavating the musical ruins of old to find new sounds to incorporate into their own as their new full length album Habitual Levitations demonstrates. On their fourth full length Intronaut further showcase their impeccable qualities as talented songwriters.

It’s A Long Way Down: INTRONAUT Streaming New Song

As Habitual Levitations‘ release date draws nearer (March 19th), Intronaut keeps their fans in suspense with the release of another new track from the record. We’ve heard “Milk Leg”“The Welding”, and now Visions.de is offering a stream of “The Way Down”. This track is just a solid psychedelic sludge track that you would come to expect from Intronaut. It’s definitely not a bad thing. Check out the track now and a new studio video below.

INTRONAUT Streaming New Track

Intronaut have released another new track from their highly anticipated new album, Habitual Levatations, via Pitchfork. The track in question is “The Welding”, which is also a song they have been playing live recently. The track begins with some metallic guitar scrapes and some slapped bass action that opens up into a swell of heavy grooves and extremely catchy hooks. The track, in true Intronaut fashion, eventually dissolves into an atmospheric, post-rock inspired section with ethereal vocals and all. “The Welding” is a very solid Intronaut song and increases my excitement for the new album.

Habitual Levitations (Instilling Words With Tones) will be released on March 9th via Century Media.
