Back around the start of the pandemic, I came across an album that I immediately recognized would be in contention for my 2020 Album Of The Year, only to then find that it wasn’t a 2020 release. Second time around, there’s no such ambiguity; Psychonaut have put out one of the best metal albums of 2022.

Looking forward to this one, the first song sounds great and their last album was my favourite of 2020. Is that the album cover shown above, or just being used until we have an actual album cover, because I'm sure it says "Interbeing" in the bottom right, so is probably just the cover for the first song?

Good spot, I went on their FB you're right, there is a different artwork; I've edited it now

I've given the promo one spin so far, so am not entirely familiar with it - but unless I have a drastic reassessment with continued replays, this will most likely be my AOTY. Of all the bands in this post/prog-metal sphere (and I dig most of them), Psychonaut are, with only 2 albums under their belt, right at the very pinnacle

This band just reminds me that I need to finish playing Psychonauts.

Wow, that's something coming from you. I can't wait to listen to this album now. Just need to buy it first and then put it on repeat.

I new just from 30 seconds in this was going to be something truly remarkable and I wasn't wrong, the drumming is breathtaking the guitar work is stunning and it's brilliantly constructed with an amazing sound quality! Mastodon should take a lesson from this, I mean this is the standard they once used to play at.

There's no doubt in my mind that this will be a worthy contender for post metal AOTY! And the title track is one of the most impressive songs I’ve heard this year aswel

This album takes you on an incredible journey. What an amazing atmosphere. Great song writing. This is the type of album you can listen 10 times and hear a new nuance every time.
