Doesn't appear to be mixed very well, especially the vocals. Also seems to rely on the "djent" sound overtly much too.

Agreed they rely on djent too much. Album is good, nothing special. The saxophone stuff was the highlight of the album for me. Sounds awesome together.

Really enjoyed it. For those of you who don't know, this is supposed to sound like one 51 minute song. Thus, most of the songs are going to sound similar in nature. Yes, they use that djent style heavily, but the grooves they create are infectious and they use a very heavy atmospheric sound to balance out the djent style. Also TesseracT are one of the founders of the djent movement so that is definitely going to be incorporated into their sound.

Amazing. Vocals should be louder in certain parts though.

Doubt it was from hearing Autotheism. Lots of tech/prog ,metal bands are influenced by Jazz, so it would only be natural to incorporate more of it into their album. They also stated, "Altered State will be softer and have more jazz and folk influence than their first release".

No they did not invent djent, but they were definitely one of the first few bands that help pioneer that style. Look it up.

"TesseracT, one of the U.K.'s pioneers of the exploding djent movement, have just unveiled the new music video for "Nascent"

-- From http://www.guitarworld.com/tesseract-unveil-new-video

"They are credited as one of the bands to pioneer the 'djent' movement in progressive metal."

-- From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tesseract_(band)

"TesseracT have been a band for many years, and were sporadically releasing songs on the Internet to widespread acclaim in underground circles way before the multitudes of so-called “djent” bands they inspired even existed"

"One was released last year). This puts them in sort of a weird spot; it feels like they’re late to the game, and to the unknowledgeable observer it would certainly appear that way, even though they helped to create that game to begin with."

-- from Metalsucks

Also melodic death metal has several founding bands, In flames, Dark tranquility, At the gates.

There can be more than one band that pioneers a style.

so can we settle this now?
