If it is singularity, the tried, and tested, or just bizarre that you want, don’t bother looking any further. However, if you yearn for ‘new’ and ‘engaging’, something that antagonizes and simultaneously calms the soul—this LP is for you.
Metaphere is Trillion Red’s debut full-length after last year’s Two Tongues EP. This LP mightily sheds ‘the disconnects’ of Two Tongues, and unleashes a united and firm mark onto the Dark Progressive Avant-Garde Metal sound. It showcases the enormous leap Patrick has taken in creating soundscapes that alternate between heavy and hammering structures, to ambient interludes that all come together to create a twisted musical abstract.
Trillion Red is firmly rooted both thematically and musically in the radical emotions of the human experience. Despite the existential and intangible subject matter, the struggle between darkness and light is the core concept throughout Metaphere, something which everyone can relate and derive inspiration.
This to be enjoyed and savored as a boundless experience that flows seamlessly from beginning to end. Take further passes, and time after time, your ears will gain further insight to what is being said. With a passion to create a new and inspirational musical experience, Trillion Red exceeds expectations with the release of Metaphere.
Close your eyes and let your ears tell the story.

“Words fall short on a release like this; you need to hear it to understand…the deconstruction and re-creation of modern extreme music. This may be album of the year right now for me.” Absolute Zero Media

"It is an enveloping and perpetually shifting journey of striking and questioning soundscapes, an expressive experience which is as accomplished at unsettling the nerves and senses as it is at sending them into rapture." Ringmaster Review
"One moment a wave of strange noises greets you, and the next Patrick is crooning to a mellow beat that sounds like Shadows of the Sun-era Ulver. After that, another cacophony of noise ensues followed by some heavy music. Ambient noises also occasionally mix in followed by highly emotive singing invoking both lightness and darkness. The sound is seriously odd, but that's only because there is really nothing like it. At all." PureGrainAudio
"Metaphere is a testing and compulsive journey, a vast soundscape brought through aural ventures which are as striking and invigorating as they are corruptive and disorientating. The tracks within the release are as accomplished at unsettling nerves and emotions as they are at firing up the senses and passions, yes it needs time and effort at times but never leaves one with any sense of disappointment." Ghost Cult Magazine
"...I must admit that I am addicted to it." Psychozine
"...a musical offering of true substance and validity." Worm Gear

"Listening to this I feel alone in the universe. This is like being cut off from your mothership, floating helplessly in space knowing that you'll meet your maker any time soon...This is one for those special occasions." Battlehelm

"This is music for those who have moved on, who want more, who need something different, something that will make you sit up and take notice that this is what music, or maybe better phrased, this is what art can be, when art is a sound." The Ripple Effect
Odin’s 2012 Top Ten List The Ripple Effect
“Metaphere delivers enough grit, enough light, enough shine and enough darkness to make for an hour worth spending lying on your back watching the clouds while you absorb the soundscapes it creates. Trillion Red, aka Patrick Brown, has provided a brilliant album to truly think about.” Metal As Fuck
