Five years since the release of Sonder, TesseracT return with their new album ‘War Of Being’, released on September 15 via Kscope, showcasing perfectly why they remain pioneering leaders of the ever-evolving metal scene.

Drawing upon their previous albums’ strengths, “War Of Being” seamlessly combines the aggressive intensity of their debut masterpiece, “One,” the intricate song structures of “Altered State,” the songwriting prowess of “Polaris,” and the mind-boggling technicality of “Sonder.” The result is destined to be whispered about in hallowed progressive circles for years to come. It sets an impossibly high benchmark that few will ever surpass.

A concept album with AI generated cover art, War Of Being tells the gripping tale of ex and el, two souls stranded in The Strangeland after a catastrophic shipwreck. Here, they encounter a mysterious entity known as Fear, sparking a journey of self-discovery and enlightenment. As you embark on your own individual journey through the album, prepare to unlock the deepest recesses of your own being.

“War Of Being has been all encompassing for us since late 2019.  After I returned home  from filming P O R T A L S I found myself in such a deeply introspective headspace. The scale of work and reward from that project kind of set this up to be inevitable,” says TesseracT bassist Amos Williams.

“We simply had to try and see how far we could take a concept album with TesseracT.  Within these songs the band has given life to the themes and ideas that are personified within the characters of The Strangeland story. It’s certainly been a catharsis and a way for me to explore the internal dissonance.”

TesseracT stand firmly at the vanguard of the progressive movement that they themselves help shape. Their signature polyrhythmic grooves continue to push boundaries that seem impossible to cross and they do so with the ultimate finesse and class.

Sitting outside the limits of any genre specificity, TesseracT are an unstoppable force of off-kilter riffs, soaring melodies, bending grooves and disorientating atmospherics.
