New week, time to introduce "Record Of The Week"

INTRONAUTs initial line-up included guitarist/vocalist Sacha Dunable, guitarist/vocalist Leon del Muerte, drummer Danny Walker, and bassist Joe Lester. According to Walker, the band chose its name because Intronaut is an "inner traveler" designed to encourage the listener to explore his or her own mind. That's is exactly what they are doing with "The Direction of Last Things". A complex polyrhythms journey thru the mind in field of progressive rock and jazz metal.
The album is influenced by a wide variety of genres and packed up into fabulous package that will give you as a listener many hours of music. The album is full of sludgy head-banging riffs to distorted, fuzzed guitar tones. The drums ferociously pounds hard on almost every single track along with beautiful harmonies. It constantly changing tones, math rhythms and well crafted songs. Sir Devin Townsend is the master on the mixing duties.
From start to finish the seven tracks album is simply an epic journey!
