TesseracT - 2021

Today, progressive metal outfit TesseracT released the full video performance of “Nocturne,” one of the highlights from their 2020 livestreamed event, Portals. The full cinematic experience will be presented to a wider audience for the first time August 27 via Kscope and will feature 14 songs, spanning the band’s entire catalog.

Bassist Amos Williams shares more about the song:

“‘Nocturne’ has been a firm fan and band favorite since it was released ahead of the Altered State album cycle. As such, we threw a lot into the performance, which was matched by our production team, who really pushed the envelope with what they achieved during this track. The laser effects and lighting is powerful and emotive, and Rich’s cinematography really hits the mark.”

Portals is now available for pre-order in multiple formats, including Blu-Ray, Triple LP soundtrack, and as a limited edition deluxe 4-disc book.

HM presents an oral history of the beginning of Christian metal music, featuring Guardian, Tourniquet, Holy Soldier, Whitecross, and, of course, Stryper.
