Tesseract Star Explains Reason For Early Vocal Approach
Williams told FreqsTV's Into The Machine: "I feel that a lot of genres have expectations. When we started, I feel like we felt we had to do certain things to fit in.
"I definitely remember conversations about not being happy with the screamed guttural vocals, but saying to each other, 'We have to do this'. That was probably the first indication of where the band was going. Even on the first album, we could tell we were going to move away as quick as possible."
He continues: "As a young band, it allowed us to be a part of something that acted as a springboard. It immediately propelled us into an international market. It was a good thing to do that.
"If we had forged our own path at that point I don't feel we would have got the international acclaim that we did immediately." The band is the latest to appear on the FreqsTV web series Into The Machine. Watch the episode here.
