Acting more as a buffer than a proper release, the latest endeavor put forth by the Bay Area adventurous metal troupe Intronaut is the 10-track THE CHALLENGER. Combine three new crushing tunes stocked with all of the technical excellence and feral heaviness you've come to expect from this quartet, five live tracks which prove that this outfit can summon the same power and fury in a live setting as they do in the studio, and an ambient remix to chill out to and you've got the makings of a nice holdover release before the group's next mesmerizing effort hits the shelves. If you're a fan or just curious as to what all the hype is about, this is a nice way to become acquainted with this progressively heavy unit.
