Progressive metal legends Intronaut recently released Cubensis, the new single from their upcoming full-length Fluid Existential Inversions, and now they bring more goods about the album.
Suffice it to say, a lot of people are excited about the band’s new offerings. This is the first new music we’ve heard from the them since their 2015 release The Direction of Last Things, which boasted a deft combination of sludge, prog, and a music video featuring a dolphin. Also being mixed by the great Devin Townsend, it was difficult to see how the band were going to follow up such a great entry in the genre.
“We pushed ourselves to be bigger and better, musically speaking, and to me, that’s the essence of progressive music,” explains guitarist/vocalist Sacha Dunable. “On this album, there are drums played in ways I’ve never heard before. There are synths used in contexts I’ve never heard before. Intronaut has the most unique bass player in all of heavy metal as far as I’m concerned, and I even practiced guitar to get myself out of my comfort zone. So, I think we progressed and made the best album ever.”
With the departure of drummer Danny Walker from the band in 2018, finding a drummer of equal caliber would be nothing short of a tall order. For Fluid Existential Inversions, Intronaut have recruited Alex Rudinger to handle recording privileges, a drummer who has worked with a borderline alarming number of metal groups, including Revocation, Good Tiger, Whitechapel, and now Intronaut are proudly on that list.
Fluid Existential Inversions will be released February 28 through Metal Blade Records, and it’s already sounding like the band’s most ambitious release to date.
