SATURDAY SONG TO GET 2006’D TO: INTRONAUT – “FAULT LINES
If the MetalSucks Universe had been born one year earlier, we would have had many amazing albums to hype on our 2006 best-of lists, and one that would have most definitely ranked mighty high on my cannon was Intronaut’s first full-length, Void.
At the time (and to this day) Void — and its baby sister, preceding EP Null — sounded like nothing else. Merging a jazzy jamband sensibility with bone-crushing riffage, all under a progressive rock lens, Intronaut came out of nowhere and in many ways owned my ears for the better part of 2006.
Oh yeah, wait a second — Mastodon’s Blood Mountain and LoG’s Sacrament came out that year too, right?
Jeez, metal really sucks.
