tesseract in studio

Tesseract‘s sophomore album Altered State was among one of my favorite albums of 2013, and I maintain that the album’s three-part opener ‘Of Matter’ is the best song the group have written thus far. The dynamic crescendos and many vocal hooks put this up there past ‘Concealing Fate‘ for me. Of course, many of you will disagree, but certainly the band believes the song is at least in the same ballpark, as they’ve given the song the same live studio treatment they’ve given to ‘Concealing Fate‘.

The performance was recorded late last year at Sphere Studios and was mixed and mastered by guitarist Acle Kahney at 4D studios. Allegedly, the group recorded the Altered State‘s other three movements at different studios, with video coming down the pike in the coming months. It remains to be seen if this is actually the case, but fingers crossed that it winds up being true. Tesseract are a phenomenal live band, and some of us haven’t had the opportunity to catch them on tour.
