Author Hernan Osuna - 17.8.2023

British progressive metal band TesseracT has released a new single, “The Grey“, and an immersive gaming experience called “War of Being” to accompany it.

“‘The Grey’ explores the story and character within The Strangeland of the same name — a character who has suppressed their own voice to the point that they have blended into the shadows, their story lost amongst the white noise of the world,” commented Tesseract’s Amos Williams. “Through the song, we experience their journey as they wrestle with their frustration and sorrow at how they have ended up this way.”

“It’s a powerful, energetic piece that pushes each member of Tesseract to the next level of musicianship and expression. And continues to shine a light upon the diversity that can be expected from War Of Being.”, he added.

The game will take players on a journey through surreal landscapes, meeting familiar characters from the concept album and solving puzzles. Launched on August 11th, “War Of Being” enables players to enter the world of the album and areas from the game can be seen in the visualizer for “The Grey.”

The game will be available exclusively on Steam for £4.99 UK and playable in VR on Viva / Rift S and Oculus accompanied by a SteamDeck playable version. You can download it here.

TesseracT’s new LP “War Of Being” is out September 15 through KScope, with pre-orders available here. The album was recorded at Middle Farm Studios in the United Kingdom with Peter Miles (Architects/Sylosis/Dodie) co-producing with the band alongside Katherine Marsh of Choir Noir (Bring Me The Horizon/Architects/Marillion). Assisting with additional programming and production, the band were joined by Randy Slaugh (Periphery, Architects, Devin Townsend). With additional engineering by Forrester Savell (Karnivool).

The artwork, which features characters ‘ex’ and ‘el’ was created in collaboration between AI and human as a means to extend the concept into its presentation.
