Century Media are giving us a full stream of TesseracT‘s upcoming live DVD “Scala”, filmed in November last year at The Scala in London. With the release comes a live audio CD titled “Odyssey” which was recorded during various shows on the band’s 2014 European Tour.
As a dedicated and patient (*coughs*) fan, I’m waiting for my own signed copy to arrive in the mail. Then I’ll lock the front door, turn the lights and my phone off, and place scented candles in a circle on the floor in my living room before I sit down to witness my favourite band with my favourite vocalist in all its liveliness and glory. It’s going to be the most awesome night.
Release date: May 19th. Available from Tesseract official store on both CD and vinyl, signed by the whole band.
This is the stuff dreams are made of.
Release Date: November 11, 2013 self-released
Tracks: 11 Length: 48 minutes
Genre: Cinematic, ambient post-rock/experimental
Recommended for fans of: Sigur Rós, Enigma, Massive Attack, Olafur Arnalds, Daniel Tompkins
This week’s video is from the singer of the progressive metal band Skyharbor, Daniel Tompkins. White Moth Black Butterfly is his solo project that he has created with help from Keshav Dhar (also in Skyharbor) and Acle Kahney (TesseracT). It’s pretty far away from metal, but it’s definitely good enough to deserve a mention, or two. Or, in my opinion, one thousand! “One Thousand Wings” is the title of White Moth Black Butterfly’s debut album that will be released on November 11th, and I happen to know that it includes some very beautiful and special songs. This is the third single, called “Omen” and it premiered yesterday, on Halloween. Good timing, considering the dark, mysterious and slightly horror-like atmosphere in the video and the song. I hope you’ll give it a listen and let me know what you think! Enjoy!
