Staff review by
It's moments like these that give you a new perception of where progressive metal is headed nowadays; when you pause and think to yourself "Why the hell is there jazz fusion in my sludge?" In all likelihood that will be one of the many head scratchers Intronaut's Habitual Levitations (Instilling Words With Tones) will get out of its listeners as it posits itself in a wonderfully vague no-man's land between post and progressive metal and an overtly technical Cynicism.

Thoroughly enjoyed this. The instrumentation is very, very impressive.

Was worried with the single Milk leg, which wasn't a great song by Intronaut standards. But after listening to this, it seems that they've managed to top the really impressive, Valley of smoke in every aspect possible.

The 7.8 rating on this album right now definitely seems low. I'm trying to talk myself down from a 9, but The Welding by itself almost demands HL(BWWT) get above an 8.

Can't believe I haven't got into this band soon enough, I really dig their work (and managed to see them last year when opening for Katatonia). This is a really strong album, I enjoy songs like "Steps", "Eventual" and "Milk Leg."
Ordinary men hate solitude. But the Master makes use of it, embracing his aloneness, realizing he is one with the whole universe (Lao Tzu).
