Los Angeles post-prog masters Intronaut return with their 4th and most impressive full length album to date; Habitual Levitations. Once again yielding thunderous, tribal drum beats, hypnotic bass patterns, angular guitar riffs and the trance-like vocals of Sacha Dunable, Intronaut pick up where they left off on 2010's Valley of Smoke, though this time around, see the songs a bit more refined and cultivated. The band toured heavily in support of Valley, including a stint opening for Tool in the US, which may explain the more polished sound. Intronaut has always teetered close on being a jam band. With one of the greatest rhythm sections in music (drummer, Danny Walker and bassist, Joe Lester) it would be hard not to just light up and see where those two take you. Experimenting on stage, knowing exactly where each band member is going in the song and thus really becoming one as a band is what Intronaut has achieved and what producers John Haddad [Exhumed, Phobia] and Derek Donley [Bereft] managed to capture perfectly on the new album. With a US tour supporting Meshuggah and Animals as Leaders set prior to Habitual's release, Intronaut will surely continue to mature and solidify themselves as one of the best metal bands around.

"Gut-thumping prog and punk influenced metal that effortlessly blends the high-adrenaline and technical virtuosity of The Dillinger Escape Plan with the snarl of Mastodon." - Good Times Magazine
Moon Tooth is the new project of long-time friends and collaborators Nick Lee & Ray Marte. The band formed after the breakup of their previous endeavor, Exemption, which released several albums and made many friends touring the east coast during their seven year run from 2005 - 2012. Determined not to let that band's dissolve slow them down, they immediately began work on a bigger, bolder, more aggressive project that became known as Moon Tooth.
Moon Tooth finds the pair at a new plateau of focus and energy. They quickly found kinship and camaraderie with vocalist John Carbone (Rice Cultivation Society) and bassist Vin Romanelli (Give Up The Goods) who both a bring a great deal of personality to the band's sound. This band is eager to crush you with some devastating new jams. First EP entitled simply "FREAKS" was released 7/25/13 & recorded, mixed, and mastered by Ray Marte & Moon Tooth at Westfall Recording Co. in Farmingdale, NY from Winter - Summer 2013 but their live show is where the band truly delivers and with many new tunes already in the works for a full-length they will all assure you that you haven't heard anything yet.
