Intronaut, Scale The Summit, Mouth of the Architect, Sannhet

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.

Scale The Summit

In 2004, Guitarists Chris Letchford and Travis Levrier moved to Los Angeles to attend the Musicians Institute, where they met drummer Pat Skeffington. After a few months, the band was completed with the addition of Bassist Jordan Eberhardt. While attending M.I., Chris and Travis also attended a luthier course, where the duo learned to build their own custom guitars. At the end of 2006, Scale The Summit moved to Letchford's home town of Houston, Texas, where they released their self-released debut album, Monument. They slowly started to gain attention from magazines such as Kerrang, Rock Sound and Amp. A couple years later in 2009 they signed with Prosthetic Records and began working on their second album, Carving Desert Canyons. The release of the second album was extremely successful, earning the band a spot on the 2008 Progressive Nation Tour with Dream Theater. After a couple more years of touring, the band settled in again in late 2010 to record their most recent album, The Collective.

Mouth of the Architect

Heavy psychedelic outfit Mouth of the Architect have announced a tour in support of their new LP, Path of Eight, due out October 7th on Translation Loss. On this, their 5th LP, the band continue to push their melodic abilities, while furthering their dense, hallucinatory tide of stoner­-friendly post­metal. A psychedelic assault, Path of Eight is Mouth of the Architect at their most astral. They are very appreciative of their fans and their label and hope that their new record will blow the doors off your brain barn.


Founded in late 2010, the instrumental trio known as Sannhet has amassed a diehard audience within Brooklyn, NY’s broad underground music circuit through their abundant live performances throughout the borough, always choreographed with electrifying visuals. Known Flood, Sannhet’s sprawling debut LP, features nearly forty-five minutes of their electrified post-metal, fueled with domineering riff-building movements and intense percussive hostility, unifying in a slightly blackened and trance-inducing atmospheric style, captured by Colin Marston (Krallice, Behold… The Arctopus, Dysrhythmia) and mastered by Carl Saff.
