TERAMAZE returns with their 4th full length album after completely grabbing the attention of the underground Thrash and Prog-Power Metal fans with their 2012 release “AnhedoniA.” Teramaze blends amazingly tight and speedy syncopated guitar/drum riffs and rhythms, with melodic hard vocals, for a very unique brand of metal. Creating a Testament & Tool meets Pantera & The Police in a dark sci-fi video game vibe. Teramaze burst out of Australia in 2012 and received well-deserved critical acclaim worldwide with their release “AnhedoniA”.
Their music conjures such adjectives as, "Innovative", "Progressive" and "Groove-laden" but most notably, "Engaging". Keeping the fundamental elements of metal alive, Teramaze pushes metal into un-chartered territory with guitar work that is incendiary with powerfully aggressive vocals that drive the song.
“Esoteric Symbolism screams at the men behind the curtain, shining a spotlight on the establishment in an attempt to share their secrets.”
For fans of Pantera, Tool, Metallica, Devin Townsend & Soilwork…(Think Dream Theater on steroids without the extended wankery)
Produced/Mixed by Dean Wells and mastered by Lasse Lammert (Alestorm, Stuck Mojo).

Wow! After "Anhedonia", (wich it's one of the best records i've ever heard!), i thought "it will get really really hard for the next album".
But after the first listen i must say that this record is blowin your mind! Really powerfull and great sounding album mixed with some very deep melodic parts! I'm sure that this record will be playing for many many times on my phones in the future! You're really underrated the people out there should listen more music like this, "real" music! best regards from Germany! and much success! (Posted on 4/16/14)
