HABITUTUAL LEVITATIONS, the phenomenal new album from LA’s post metal proggers Intronaut, is available today via Century Media Records. This is Intronaut‘s fourth and greatest album to date, receiving praise from press and fans alike. Drums for Habitutual Levitations were recorded by producer John Haddad [Exhumed, Phobia], and Derek Donley [Bereft] handled recording for all other elements on the record. The album was mixed by Josh Newell, and artwork and layout was done by David D’Andrea, who has also worked with the band on previous albums. Intronaut just wrapped up a tour with Meshuggah and Animals As Leaders in support of the album, and have additional touring plans in the works that will be announced shortly.
First conceived in 2004, Los Angeles, CA’s Intronaut started out as a friendly but loose side project concocted between Anubis Rising vocalist/guitarist Sacha Dunable and then Uphill Battle drummer Danny Walker (also ex-Exhumed). When their songwriting started to bear impressive fruit — based upon the aggressive and progressive new sound made popular by Mastodon and, to a lesser degree, their own groups — the duo called in fellow Exhumed guitarist/vocalist Leon del Muerte and bassist Joe Lester to help them cut the Null EP, released in early 2006 by Goodfellow Records. Barely six months later, Intronaut returned with that EP’s logically named follow-up, Void.
