5 stars Prehistoricisms blew me away from the first listen and still amazes me... Hands down, the best metal album of 08. There are not many albums I can listen to every day, this is one them.

I first heard Intronaut on the Syd Barret tribute album, Like Black Holes In The Sky. I thought their cover of Arnold Lane was genius! So I decided to dig a little deeper... They captivated me from the first chord to last warm buzzing of the tanpura in The Reptilian Brain.

My favorite track on this album is Sundial... I l love the metal riffage as well as the texturing with dissonant chords, and the jazzy interlude played out on the bass was genius... the drumming in this track is outstanding! But... don't let my obsession with Sundial put you off. The whole album rocks. Every track is played with skill and mastery. I just happen to particularly appreciate Sundial.

Clyssus | 5/5 |
