While on tour in the States, UK prog metallers TesseracT took part in an acoustic recording session for Metal Injection. The three videos are online now and can be viewed HERE, along with one of the songs down below.
The band performed renditions of their own songs ‘April’ and ‘Origin’ as well as a cover of the Jeff Buckley number ‘Dream Brother’. Both ‘April’ and ‘Origin’, in their bare stripped down states, provide for some harrowing atmospheres. It’s been said on these pages before but here it goes one more time, Daniel Tompkins has one of the best voices in modern metal. We heard it in its recorded glory on One and when the band played their three date Irish tour back in February, we witnessed the fact that the man doesn’t miss a step live. However, on these acoustic tracks there’s little in the way of big, staggering vocals like that on songs like ‘Nascent’, rather it’s a deep brooding and melancholic vibe, and it’s equally as impressive.
Check out ‘April’, and the rest of the clips HERE.
