**UPDATE 1/20/17: this album is undergoing a remix/remaster process, to be completed mid-February. Four tracks have been cut but will be included as bonus tracks. If you purchased this version, you will receive a download code for the remastered version when it is released.**
An instrumental xenharmonic prog-metal odyssey using refretted guitars in four different equal divisions of the octave: 14edo, 15edo, 17edo, and 23edo (see track notes to see which tuning the track is in). Stylistically, this album draws influences from a broad spectrum of metal subgenres; djent, prog-metal, post-metal, and stoner metal all find representation within these tracks. This album is the follow-up to 2014's mind-warping "Chains of Smoke", and expands on that album's sound by adding synthesized elements, faster tempos, lower open-string tunings, crazier time changes, and more expansive song structures.
For fans of: the Fucking Champs, Meshuggah, Dysrhythmia, and Pelican.
All proceeds from sales of this album will go to the purchase of more microtonal guitars and the production of more crazy-ass music!
