Metal band Bardspec have released a stream for the new track “Bone” off of their debut album Hydrogen. The ambient new project features Enslaved composer/guitarist Ivar Bjørnson and Today Is The Day’s Steve Austin. Describing the new track “Bone,” Bjørnson commented, “(it’s) song that is a meditation upon the concepts of strength and endurance, in the micro and the macro. How evolution has made us upright and made to be on the move – and how hard it can be to adapt those features into the realms of our psyche – so that we can undergo the mental evolution that is dormant within us.”

Bardspec is inspired by the German masters Tangerine Dream, Klaus Schultze, and Conrad Schnitzler in addition to contemporary ambient music like Norwegian one-man-band Biosphere and abstract modern electronic music like When, as well as the electronic/industrial-driven metal like Godflesh. Hydrogen will be released on June 23rd across all formats. The six-panel CD digipak is available as limited first pressing of 1000 and includes bonus track “Teeth.”
