Intronaut debut 'Pangloss'

2020-01-29 by Fernando Alves STAFF | 30 Comments
Intronaut are currently streaming 'Pangloss', the second single taken from the upcoming new album Fluid Existential Inversions, out February 28th, via Metal Blade Records.

Stream 'Pangloss' here:



Guitarist/vocalist Sacha Dunable states:
"We pushed ourselves to be bigger and better, musically speaking, and to me that's the essence of progressive music. I love bands like Motörhead and AC/DC that give you the same thing over and over, but Intronaut is all about trying to break whatever mold exists - especially for ourselves - and give you something you haven't heard before. 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. I don't even care if no one else hears it, if it was all for me I'd be satisfied."

Fluid Existential Inversions tracklist:

01. Procurement of the Victuals
02. Cubensis
03. The Cull
04. Contrapasso
05. Speaking of Orbs
06. Tripolar
07. Check Your Misfortune
08. Pangloss
09. Sour Everythings

I was thinking the same when the vocals kicked on. What happened? Other than that it's pretty solid.

i thought the complaints were for dave's vocals. like the chorus for cubensis. the regular harsh vox (how little there are) seem the same to me?

The harsh vox also sound a bit worse to me, comparing to their last album. Idk, maybe the loss of six million layers of reverb to cover the vox isn't quite doing them justice.

These new singles seem kind of flavorless tbh. Im not sure if its due to the original drummer leaving or what. Also I miss the thick, dynamic bass grooves from the Valley of Smoke days...

omg this. sasha especially sounds like the most phoning in of vocals I've ever heard. not too jazzed for this after the first two singles...it's definitely missing something

I've gotta be honest both these singles are pretty meh.

Songwriting doesn't feel as organic as their past work, a little forced tbh.

Rudinger is a beast but they definitely lost someone special with their last drummer, like MO said can't put my finger on it exactly I'm just not vibing with the new songs that much.

The drumming is ridiculous in the final couple of minutes of the song.

I've got to say, I see where the producer was going with this but it's just not good. Vox are way too dry, it sounds raw in all the wrong ways and even the psychadelics at the end don't quite achieve that hallucinogenic affect the way they clearly intended. Really flat and takes a lot of the energy out of the composition (which is ok).

Digging: Cynic - Ascension Codes

I liked it. The only problem I hear is that the new drummer doesn't know how to handle the melodic sections as well as Danny. He had a very unique style to him and worked perfectly with Joe.
