Progressive metal outfit TETRAFUSION and Nightmare Records are launching the official music video for the track “Monologue” from their sophomore album “Altered State” on Monday, December 20th. The clip (filmed in Shreveport, LA) was produced by Chris Lyon (Perennial Media) and directed by Shreveport’s Fairfield Studios and can be viewed below.
States bassist Mark Michell: “It was a pleasure to work with one of the highest-quality production studios and directors from our region. Chris Lyon has directed many recent independent films and is truly a natural at his craft. He and the crew from Fairfield really took the lyrics and story from our track and brought them to life with an amazing cinematic storyline. It brought the track to an entirely new level. We hope to work with these guys again in the future.”
TETRAFUSION’s blend of complex, technical metal blended with a highly-intellectual melodic structure offers an eclectic brand of progressive rock and metal placing the group among the elite the genre offers like PORCUPINE TREE, RUSH, DREAM THEATER, CYNIC, TOOL and MUSE. Originally an instrumental band, the group released its debut record, “Absolute Zero”, to critical acclaim, which quickly launched TETRAFUSION into the underground metal scene, sans vocals, along the likes of SCALE THE SUMMIT, ANIMALS AS LEADERS, LIQUID TENSION EXPERIMENT, and CANVAS SOLARIS, and was hailed as one of the top ten albums of 2009 by Ultimate-Guitar.com.
The band’s sophomore effort, “Altered State”, was released on October 12th, 2010 on Nightmare Records / Sony / Red. The CD was recorded and produced by David Forshee of Queensix Productions. The album was the band’s first time to feature vocals, which were handled by keyboardist Gary Tubbs.
