Native Construct is a band that you need to watch out for. Their near-flawless blend of Dream Theater-esque progressive metal meshed with their deathcore and djent influences is an infectious concoction that you need to listen to. These Berklee students have so far released one self-produced, 13-minute epic entitled “Chromatic Aberration“, and it is glorious. If you haven’t listened to it yet, you can hear it above.
I’ve spoken with Gabe Dos Solamon, one of the guitarists of Native Construct, and he has been kind enough to give HBIH about future plans, including a new album this year:
“We have begun work on our yet-to-be-titled debut full-length album, to be released early this fall. Tracking will begin upon the return of our drummer Anthony Barone from his endeavors this summer with Aegaeon — he will be filling in on drums on their headlining tour with My Bitter End, on the Slaughter Survivor’s tour, and will be recording drums on their upcoming album, Being. The new Native Construct album will be entirely self-produced in our apartment here in Boston. Plenty of videos and updates will be coming soon.”
Very, very exciting! If their upcoming album is any sorts of awesome like “Chromatic Aberration“, it’s very possible that it will show up on my album-of-the-year list. I can’t wait!
We’ll have more info when it’s available!
