Intronaut Prepare to Levitate
Intronaut are one of the most underrated bands in today’s crowded metal scene (IMHO). Over the course of 4 amazing albums this LA-based band has perfected a unique blend of sludge, technical metal, post metal, and prog rock with some noticible elements of Jazz and world music. Truly, they are a combination of their parts with guitarist/vocalist Sacha Dunable formerly playing in the defunct doom band Anubis Rising, virtuoso drummer Danny Walker being part of some monumental grind and death metal bands including Phobia and Uphill Battle, and bassist Joe Lester having a background in Jazz, Funk, and traditional Indian music and owning a bachelors degree in music.
The Intro-dudes are just about to release their fifth album which sports the wordy and obscure title “Habitual Levitations (Instilling Words With Tones)” on March 19th, and I am extremely pumped. Without having heard it all, I am already willing to bet that it will be a top five favorite album for 2013 by year’s end. In the meantime please enjoy the trippy and monochromatic video for “Milk Leg”, the first song to be released from the upcoming LP. Based on this song alone, I’m thinking that Habitual Levitations could end up being the band’s breakthrough album which could finally deliver them to a much larger audience. Enjoy!
