I have never heard of this Intensus before, but apparently it’s a one man free form improvisational metal project from Knife The Glitter‘s Eli Litwin that sounds like the bastard child of The Dillinger Escape Plan and Anaal Nathrakh. Normally I skip over many new signings if I have never seen the name before (for shame!), but what caught my eye is the guest list featuring some names I’ve seen before, including BTBAM‘s Tommy Rogers, who goes absolutely batshit insane in this song “I’m A Wisdom.”
Holy shit, I am losing my ever loving mind. Has Tommy ever been this diverse of a screamer on a single track? It’s definitely been years since he’s hit lows and highs this extreme. Fuck.
Here’s the guest list for the album:
Tommy Rogers (Between the Buried and Me)
Robert Meadows (A Life Once Lost)
Jesse Korman (The Number Twelve Looks Like You)
Chris Alfano (East of the Wall / Postman Syndrome)
Jerry Jones (Trophy Scars)
Travis Weinand (Burden / Tetsuo)
Evan Moore (Gypsy Wig / Birth Screams)
Someone send a cleaning crew to my house because my mind’s been blown—and it’s messy. No release date yet, but you can listen to four songs from the record over at the Intensus Facebook.
