TesseracT - Polaris

Only two years after the highly acclaimed “Altered State”, TesseracT returns with a major change on their ranks. Vocalist Ashe O’Hara was replaced by (the old singer) Dan Tompkins. Some fans were happy with that change but others not so very pleased. It’s true that “Altered State” was a breakthrough for TesseracT. That album made them more recognizable and helped them reach a bigger audience. So the bet was not only to release something better than “Altered State” but also take a step forward. Was the bet taken? Well, I’m afraid not.
