THIRD ION is the product of a mutual love of prog, video games, and science
Prog metal outfit THIRD ION, featuring former members of THE DEVIN TOWNSEND BAND and INTO ETERNITY, will release debut album 13/8Bit May 25 on Glasstone Records. While musically THIRD ION are very metal at the heart, the songs are non-aggressive vocally. This creates a unique contrast of darkness, depth, and technically a very progressive heavy sound. THIRD ION are progressive, no only in the sense of odd time meters, but also in lyrical subject matter, covering subjects from physics to metalphysics. THIRD ION fully embraces technology in the writing and recording of their sound, while maintain and nourishing an organic aspect.
