Out Today! Vancouver’s Progressive Metallers id. Release Debut EP ‘Sagittarius A’
EP Stream – Sagittarius A – https://idmusic9.bandcamp.com/album/sagittarius-a
Vancouver, BC’s id., a multi-layered metal force with its progressive, heavy and catharsis songwriting inspired by Sigmund Freud’s theory on the levels of the human psyche are proud to unleash their debut EP ‘Sagittarius A’, out today, Feb 10, 2015. The EP is an introduction of the band’s subconscious tendencies touching on topics such as inner struggle, world views, self-awareness to what’s beyond in outer space. With more songs in their arsenal for a full length to follow this EP and influenced by bands such as Opeth, Mastodon, Devin Townsend, Gojira, and Augury, id is sharing with metallers what’s to come as they push forward to put themselves on the map. Employing a style that is different compared to other progressive bands, id. transcend genres with a line up of Vancouver metal scene veterans that includes lyricist and vocalist Jason Pennington (Makaria), drummer Kris DeBoer (Grudge, Infernal Majesty, Artep), rhythm guitarist Tyson Araszewski (AutumnEx) and guitarist Alex Dubreuil (My Own Chaos) who also does bass on the EP.
The EP is now available for purchase at the following link here.
Vocalist Jason Pennington comments:
“We’re happy to share our debut EP with our new fans! Check it out it! It’ll make you explore the exposition of human emotion. It speaks of metaphors that interpret our actions. Enjoy \m/” comments vocalist Jason Pennington.
In additional news, id. will be performing their CD launch show later this week on February 14th for The Invisible Orange’s Anti-Valentine’s Day Massacre at Funky Winkerbeans in Vancouver, BC alongside Unbeheld, Harvest The Infection and Baryon. For tickets and show details please visit the following link here.
Band Fact: The story behind the EP Title: ‘Sagittarius A’ is the name of the black hole in the center of our galaxy. The idea comes from a fundamental belief in a scientific world view, free of religious influence and tyranny. It outlines how people are susceptible to believe things without evidence if it appeals to their vanity, as opposed to being presented with evidence and being able to accept something that is inherently contradictory to their intuition.

““As hard hitting as Opeth and as guttural as you can be, while still maintaining the complexity of progressive music.” – DJ Vengeance, Midlands Metalheads Radio
“Progressive Metal band id. and their brand new EP, entitled Sagittarius A, which will take you on a relatively short but very interesting expedition through several music genres, from World Music to Death Metal. Longtime fans of Opeth, Gojira and Mastodon will quickly fall in love with id., while others might be positively surprised with the depth offered in the music by this Vancouver-based group.” – The Headbanging Moose
“it is metal at its most beautiful. Reminding me very much of Opeth, Sagittarius A is melodic and moving. There are emotional tempo and tone changes, particularly in the track Humanity’s Cry. I love that Saggitarius A takes you on an exciting, emotional journey with its dark melodies and heavy vocals. At just four tracks, it’s a short yet satisfying listen, leaving you feeling like you’ve completed a great journey with some wonderful music” – Metal Head Blog
“This EP had me impressed.” – Canadian Beats
