TESSERACT - War Of Being (Red Vinyl) (2LP)

Since 2018's Sonder, TesseracT have risen to new heights across the globe, consistently smashing
through glass ceilings and touring arenas with the likes of Bullet for My Valentine, Dream Theater and
Gojira. All in addition to being established high-profile festival headliners themselves.
On their fifth studio album, War Of Being, TesseracT return with a career-high release that is their most
conceptual, dynamic and sonically complex 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. Throughout its hour-long run time, the band treat listeners to sprawling
atmospherics, impassioned vocal performances from Daniel Tompkins and atom bomb level heavy riffs.
The band have long been an innovative entity and with War Of Being prove they have become masters of
a truly unique sound.
The album begins with the reverie shattering 'Natural Disaster', followed by the pendulum swing of
'Legion'. That slingshots us into the herculean title track - the album's 11 minute centrepiece that
undulates with precision and power. When coupled with the beguiling melodies of 'The Grey', or the
unshielded honesty of 'Burden', the band deliver their most impassioned release to date - an album to
excite and inspire. Acle Kahney, Daniel Tompkins, Amos Williams, Jay Postones, and James Monteith
truly have crafted a phenomenal set of immersive, absorbing sounds.
War Of Being was recorded at Middle Farm Studios in the UK. The record was co-produced and
engineered by the band and Peter Miles (Dodie, Sylosis, Architects) along with his long-time collaborator
Katherine Marsh of Choir Noir (Bring Me The Horizon, Architects, Marillion). Assisting with additional
programming and production, the band were joined by Randy Slaugh (Periphery, Architects, Devin
Townsend), with additional engineering by Forrester Savell (Karnivool).
