Birthed in 2005, prior to the more-recent explosion of tech death, Lacerta paved the way for later-era tech death bands such as Beyond Creation and Archspire, finally releasing a debut effort entitled “Mind Processor” in 2010.
The album, produced by Psycroptic guitarist Joe Haley, combined brutality and brains, with over-arching sci fi themes as the perfect narrative to the clinical-yet-complex compositions.
In the time it would take an astronaut to circle the earth 38,000 times, Lacerta wrote and recorded that debut effort, toured with the likes of Psycroptic and Dreadnaught, and wrote and recorded a brand new sophomore effort.
This latest self-titled album contains eight tracks of death metal architecture that will certainly go on to inform a whole new journey of tech death into the furthest reaches of space. “Lacerta” will drop April 14th via CDN Records and features the following track listing:
1. Pillars Of Deceit
2. Grotesque Design
3. Hell To Pay
4. Incubation Of Tyrants
5. Void Of Shadows
7. Molecular Residue
8. Ambiguous Forms
