Very few bands can effectively mix intelligence with intensity like Southern California’s INTRONAUT, who essentially walk a fine line between psychedelic brutality, captivating hooks and devastating yet unpredictable time changes. The much anticipated new album, Valley of Smoke, is set for an Oct. 12th release. 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.
The dynamic new track, “Elegy,” can now be heard exclusively at Century Media
, so head over now to check it out. This is the final album version so if you already heard the track via the Invisible Oranges debut then this is the proper version that you need to hear asap.
