Progressive metal project Cognos will release their self-titled debut this fall on Willowtip Records. Recorded under the veil of anonymity, Cognos fuses elements of extreme metal, new age, and prog for a 10-track journey that breeches the dimensional threshold.
Willowtip Records is introducing the enigmatic force that is Cognos with the premiere of album track "Orb."
The band comments on the song: "This is one of the opening tracks of the album. Its inspiration came from the fact that everything that floats on space tends to have the shape of an orb as the ultimate state of evolution. Existence out there is just a journey to become a sphere, and all that isn’t so, it’s just too young."
Willowtip Records will release Cognos on CD and digital formats on October 22.
Cognos track listing:
I · II · Orb III · Pharos IV · Cometary's Waltz V · Light Years Coral (featuring guest vocals by GS) VI · Plenary Void VII · Hierarch VIII · If Skylines Collide IX · Tririzon X · Monolitheor
