North Carolinian instrumental progressive metal band Anamorph just released their ambitious, otherworldly new full-length, Lucid, today (September 6th), and it's a head-spinning listen. The Raleigh-based quartet — guitarists Sean Parkinson and Cole Lohmann, bassist Griffin Daniels and drummer James Agusta — recorded the album with producer Jamie King (Between the Buried and Me, Scale the Summit, the Contortionist) and deftly weaved together elements of prog, tech death, math rock, post rock and more across Lucid's captivating 57 minutes.

"We've been living this album for the better part of three years now," Agusta says. "Sean and I have been working on this band for over seven. This is the biggest thing we've ever done, and it's just the beginning. We are unspeakably excited to finally have this music out there and to tour the record. This is our first step into a much larger world."

Blast Lucid below. The album is available for order, download and/or streaming via the band's website, Bandcamp, iTunes and Spotify.
