Very few bands can effectively mix intelligence with intensity like Southern California’s INTRONAUT, who essentially walks a fine line between psychedelic brutality, captivating hooks and devastating yet unpredictable time changes. This is the essence of thinking man’s metal and something so refreshing that it should serve as a vicious wake up call to masses forcing the entire genre to take notice.
There is no doubt that INTRONAUT will be taking metal in a new direction with their Century Media debut, Prehistoricisms, which was engineered by Josh Newell (Jane’s Addiction). The group have been critics’ darlings, receiving numerous accolades from such major publications as Decibel, Metal Maniacs, Outburn and Revolver, among a slew of others. Decibel even listed their next effort as “One of the most anticipated releases of 2008.”
Sacha Dunable (vocals/guitars) states: “There is a level of chemistry that we’ve never had before, now with our new guitar player Dave Timnick in the band. I can't even begin to express how excited we are about this record. It's definitely our most densely packed body of work yet. In addition to the standard INTRONAUT angle of attack, we have some surprises including an awesome guest solo from Negativa/Gorguts guitarist Steve Hurdle, as well as some truly jaw-dropping moments of Indian/metal fusion courtesy of Joe Lester (bass) and Timnick. We are beyond stoked with the results.”
