Special Edition 2LP clear vinyl in gatefold packaging.
War of Being is the 2023 album from British prog-metal pioneers TesseracT.
On this, their fifth studio album, TesseracT return with a career-high release that is their most conceptual, dynamic and sonically intricate to date.
The story revolves around an inter-dimensional journey undertaken by two characters (ex and el), within The Strangeland, a world made to reflect the socio-economic state of our own.
Musically, sprawling atmospherics, impassioned Daniel Tompkins vocal performances and atom bomb level heavy riffs combine for a truly unique sound.
Acle Kahney, Daniel Tompkins, Amos Williams, Jay Postones, and James Monteith recorded the album at Middle Farm Studios in the UK. The record was co-produced and engineered by the band and Peter Miles along with his long-time collaborator Katherine Marsh of Choir Noir . Assisting with additional programming and production, the band were joined by Randy Slaugh.
