All Music Guide:
Originally started in 2003 as a solo outlet for English guitarist Acle Kahney, who at the time was playing in the band Mikaw Barish, alternately brutal and cerebral progressive metal outfit Tesseract eventually morphed into a full-blown force of nature and early adopter of the djent style, which relies heavily on tight, palm-muted riffs that sound much like the word itself, and was coined by Meshuggah guitarist Fredrik Thordendal. The band released its debut EP Concealing the Fate in 2010, followed by their debut long-player One in 2011. The Perspective EP, which featured a cover of Jeff Buckley's "Dream Brother," arrived in 2012, and was followed by their second, full-length studio outing, the Century Media-issued Altered State, in 2013.
