4 stars Intronaut is a band that looks interesting from every angle. Here we have members that have different musical backgrounds like, doom metal, grindcore, technical death metal and funk (?!). All of these styles are blended perfectly into Intronaut's sound to create a beast of the progressive metal genre.

Aggressive and technical are two words that I would use to describe Intronaut's sound (although there are many bands that also fit into this description). After only six months of signing a record deal and releasing an EP Intronaut is back with Void, a 45 minute journey into polyrhythmic head banging heaven! (or is it hell?) One of the things that set this band apart from the other technical bands from the genre is that this one isn't as cold or as mechanic as the rest. Yes, they sound hostile most of the time (and believe me that's a good thing), but they also have a melodic side and while it many not be very present in their sound, it's integral to their overall sound. Band isn't a completely technical group, this is just part of their sound. You can also hear some sludge, hardcore and even post-rock in their sound which makes their sound varied and more enjoyable.

In their respective instruments every member puts up a good fight. The main star here is bassist Joe lester. Out of all the members of the band he's the only one that doesn't normally play metal. He's musical background is in Funk, Jazz and Indian music, so the mix of metal with funky bass lines and groovyness (I know it's not a word) is very impressive and interesting. "Iceblocks" is a perfect example of this.

Intronaut doesn't fail to impress and they leave a mark wherever they walk. A great band to listen to with such a variety in their sound to keep you coming back for more and a good starting point for people wanting to get into the harsher side of progressive metal. Highly recommended.
