TERAMAZE returns with their 4th full length album after completely grabbing the attention of the underground Thrash and Prog-Power Metal fans with their 2012 release “AnhedoniA.” Teramaze blends amazingly tight and speedy syncopated guitar/drum riffs and rhythms, with melodic hard vocals, for a very unique brand of metal. Creating a Testament & Tool meets Pantera & The Police in a dark sci-fi video game vibe. Teramaze burst out of Australia in 2012 and received well-deserved critical acclaim worldwide with their release “AnhedoniA”.
Their music conjures such adjectives as, "Innovative", "Progressive" and "Groove-laden" but most notably, "Engaging". Keeping the fundamental elements of metal alive, Teramaze pushes metal into un-chartered territory with guitar work that is incendiary with powerfully aggressive vocals that drive the song.
“Esoteric Symbolism screams at the men behind the curtain, shining a spotlight on the establishment in an attempt to share their secrets.”
For fans of Pantera, Tool, Metallica, Devin Townsend & Soilwork…(Think Dream Theater on steroids without the extended wankery)
Produced/Mixed by Dean Wells and mastered by Lasse Lammert (Alestorm, Stuck Mojo).
