Exclusive: Innerty's debut 'Tabula Rasa' streaming in full


French experimental metal band Innerty are gearing up to release their debut album 'Tabula Rasa' on Bandcamp on January 19th. We're streaming the whole album for 48 hours! Check it out below.

The streaming has ended. Check back on January 10th for the instrumental version!

Don't like the vocals? Maybe you prefer instrumental music? The band are also releasing an instrumental version of the album (separately mixed and mastered!), which we will be streaming on January 10th, so be sure to check back then. Physical copies will be made available at a later date, in the form of a double album with the regular and the instrumental version included.

The album was co-produced, recorded, mixed and mastered by Eddy Dorigny of Fromtape Records. About it, the band had this to say:

"The blood, the sweat, the tears and all that crap. We started recording Tabula Rasa literally two years ago. We went through so many changes in our lives and our minds, that the result is an excruciatingly painful delivery. More than happy, we're actually extremely relieved to finally get it out there. Truthfully, a whole lot can happen in two years. People change, influences vary, and you keep questionning things till the very last minute; once again literally.

This is our first album and as a not-so-fresh starting paradigm, we ask a very simple question of our very first album: what if the notion of starting with absolutely nothing was some kind of vicious circle? What if the whole idea of an innate tabula rasa was idiotic? This is not a "concept", we abhor the "concept" phenomenon. This is a just a remark, a realisation, a question we thought of as amusing. But we're twisted and some of us eat snails and frogs. Such is life.

This is Tabula Rasa, and if you appreciate it half as much as we suffered doing it, then we'll be very pleased and you'll be too."

This album is brilliant, it will certainly be an highlight of the year. One truely experimental band, technodeath/djent mixed with jazz/fusion, a fretless bass that stands out on its own, great diversity in vocals.
One song is still online : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ozfsit_9srs

Definitely man, the bass stands out on this mix dude, i fuckin' looove it

kubark a fart song? well thats new.
they sound great cant wait to see how they will progress

Good stuff. It does sound French. But the good kind of French.

This shit is amazing!!! <3

I love the Dillinger influence this has. I'm convinced to buy this album.

Haha yes Benanne, I agree they have a very French atmosphere about them. The music and the way they speak! Innerty, like so many others recently, makes me proud to be descended from such an aware and cultured people. Well, maybe besides the snail thing. :]

Sounds promising after a short peek. I will listen to it in full later. Anyone noticed how wonderful the bass is produced and stands out for itself? Kinda rare these days.

I can't say anything yet... but it's a unique band.

I've only listened half of it now, but it's amazing! I will definitely be getting a copy.

I love how it sounds so obviously French Laughing out loud some parts reminiscent of Hacride and Gojira in there. Excellent album overall, although the track with Igorrr in the middle breaks the flow a bit. Would work better for me if it was at the end or something.

This sounds pretty sick, I must say.
