Californian progressive post-metal quartet Intronaut have premiered a new track from their forthcoming album, The Direction of Last Things, over at Metal Sucks. Titled “Fast Worms”, the seven-minute behemoth cycles between onslaughts of groove-laden tyranny, psychedelic melodies and smooth and complex jazz breaks. The new track can be streamed after the break.
On the recording process of the new album, guitarist Sacha Dunable comments:
“We decided that we don’t need to spend three weeks in a studio obsessing over every minute nuance. The reality is that in that past, we’ve taken that approach, but then we go on tour and play all those songs tightly. So why not just write the songs, rehearse the hell out of them, and then just go play them in an awesome recording studio? Intronaut is an actual band who rehearses together regularly. We make up one collective musical brain. There’s no reason why we couldn’t just have someone set up some mics, hit record, and capture that. We ended up making our best sounding record in a third of the time.”
The album’s artwork and track listing can also be viewed after the break.
The Direction of Last Things will be released on November 13 via Century Media.
