Their phenomenal success over the last three years in support of the ‘Polaris’ album saw them play worldwide tours as both headliners and as special guests for the likes of Megadeth, Meshuggah, The Devin Townsend Project and Gojira.
TesseracT’s fourth studio album, ‘Sonder’, was released on April 20 via Kscope and showcases perfectly why they remain pioneering leaders of the ever-evolving metal scene.
Sitting outside the bounds of any genre specificity, TesseracT are an unstoppable force of off-kilter riffs, soaring melodies, bending grooves and disorientating atmospherics.
Adding significant firepower to the band’s arsenal, ‘Sonder’ blends the harsh abrasiveness of One (2011) and progressive ethereal elements of ‘Altered State’ (2013) with the accessibility of ‘Polaris’ (2015).
