From Montreal, Canada, Ion Dissonance was one of the creators and refiners of a sound in the mid-'00s that was equally brutal, technical, and rich with pit-friendly grooves. Along with French Canadian countrymen Despised Icon and US bands like The Red Chord, Ion Dissonance mixed dizzying math and earthquaking heaviness into a vibe that served as a gateway for the death-core boom that followed. Between 2003 and 2010, the band released four albums and toured the world.
Now in 2016, Ion Dissonance is set to return with its fifth album, Cast the First Stone, to be released in November on Good Fight Music. A monstrous return, Cast the First Stone shows Ion Dissonance at its best, delivering lethal bursts of chaos, color, and groove – the next level of the brutal, technical style it pioneered over a decade ago.
Frontman Kevin McCaughey says,"For the occasion we reserved some of the hardest hitting grooves you've heard from us to date. With Antoine [Lussier, Ion Dissonance guitarist] at the helm of production once again, we made sure to include a little bit of everything on this one. Cast the First Stone is a solid mix of all the essential elements you would expect to hear from us, with some new twists added. This is the next chapter in the Ion Dissonance discography and we are far from finished."
