Graspop Metal Meeting 2017: Day Two

After one hell of an opening day and a second night of camping, those attending this year's edition of the Graspop Metal Meeting festival had by now settled into the routine and were ready for another day. Once again, the day promised a mix of legendary names, young blood and cult favourites (or perhaps in the case of one Norwegian act, that should be "kvlt" favourites.)

Following a delay and miscomunication, I was unfortunately unable to catch Axel Rudi Pell and so my second full day at Graspop opened with a trip to Main Stage 2, which was being graced by Devildriver.

TesseracT Premieres New Song & Music Video "Smile"

TesseracT premieres a new song and music video titled "Smile", which the band recorded during the late spring of this year with producer Acle Kahney. Comments vocalist Daniel Tompkins:

"Lyrically, ‘Smile‘ carries a strong and forward sense of irony as we explore and darkest side of the human condition. The song will witness the manifestation of an ‘entity.’ Consciousness survives through constant manipulation only to propagate pessimism and hopelessness. Our entity observes, consumes and evolves, bearing witness to human existence, mimicking our presence in colossal form."

Check out now "Smile" below.
