ION DISSONANCE + Metal Injection

"The band that kicked you in the teeth back in the early '00s are back with a few new deadly tricks! Their chaotic blend of math-core meets brutality shines though on one of the most intense albums of the year."
–Metal Injection

"A jarring, relentless listen, forever tantalizing listeners with meaty grooves that last just long enough to make the next flight of blinding technicality that much more disorienting. Ion Dissonance are absolute masters of this brains-and-brawn dichotomy."
–Stereogum

"One of the most intense albums of 2016, period."
–MetalSucks

Revitalized Montreal crushers Ion Dissonance present their newest music video, "To Lift the Dead Hand of the Past," premiered today via Metal Injection.

The song appears on Ion Dissonance's upcoming album, Cast the First Stone – the band's first since 2010A monstrous comeback, Cast the First Stone will be released November 18th on Good Fight Music. As Metal Injection puts it, "The band that kicked you in the teeth back in the early '00s are back with a few new deadly tricks! Their chaotic blend of math-core meets brutality shines though on one of the most intense albums of the year."

Ion Dissonance first mixed dizzying math and earthquaking heaviness back in the early/mid '00s and, along with bands like Despised Icon and The Red Chord, set the stage for hundreds of like-minded bands to follow. Ion Dissonance's impact on the current state of metal and hardcore is massive – and with new album Cast the First Stone, these forefathers have returned to continue pushing the genre forward.
