Extreme progressive metal band Alkaloid have put out a stream of “Kernel Panic,” another new sample from their new album Liquid Anatomy. The song melds the band’s metallic roots with their classic progressive influences.
Regarding the track, the band said “The title was coined by Morean after his old computer gave him a kernel panic message, which is a safety measure in operating systems when they encounter a internal fatal error. The song itself showcases quite a few of our disparate influences and serves as a subtle warning for what’s to come on the rest of the album. During the writing sessions ‘Kernel Panic’ was the first song that we agreed should be on the album. We changed the running order of songs quite a bit, but ‘Kernel Panic’ was always going to be [our choice for] the opening track.”
