New Zealand instrumental metal outfit Into Orbit released a new single earlier this week on January 9. The new single, which follows their 2017 full-length Unearthing, is titled “Shifter” and showcases the duo’s dynamic nature. For nearly six minutes the tune travels through various sonic paths before arriving at its cathartic conclusion. Galloping post-metal à la Russian Circles gives way to groove-heavy stoner metal, which then gives way to psychedelic prog rock fervor, and so on. Check out the track after the break and stream the band’s past efforts here. Continue Reading

A brief anecdote: in 2007 or 2008 I went to see Ottawa, Ontario band Buried Inside perform live. As one of the opening bands was setting up their frontman unassumingly took his place centre stage and they began playing shortly after. The sounds being projected from their singer was unlike anything I had ever heard up to that point. If there had been any paint left on the walls on the venue, the sound of this man’s voice surely would’ve peeled it from the surfaces. The band was Congress and their vocalist was Jamie Hooper. When not dabbling in noise rock Hooper spent some time fronting 3 inches of Blood.
