Intronaut - Void
Here we have yet another metal all-stars project, but this one is a bit more underground orientated. I must say that this disc blows me away as well as relaxes me. How can such a scenario exist? Read on and find out!
’s songwriting, give it a postcore atmosphere and you have Intronaut
has a real heavy sound, but due to the melodies you don’t really pay attention to it. Beautiful as well as destructive, relaxing as well as energizing, monstrous as well as mythical. And all very technical, without even noticing it. Brilliant. Maybe a good comparison would be Swarm Of The Lotus
or some kind of Neurosis
The vocals are taken care of by both guitarists who scream in a postcore way, dramatic and harsh. Also drummer Danny
has added samples to the album, which gives it an even thicker sound.
For the rest I don’t really have a lot to say about Void. It’s just a damn good and refreshing record and I hope to see these guys live in the near future. They’ve also released an EP entitled Null and I must get my hands on that asap. Very good stuff indeed.
