Errai is an EP by British progressive metal band TesseracT, released in September 2016 via Kscope.

TesseracT, formed in 2003, consists of Daniel Tompkins (lead vocals), Alec "Acle" Kahney (lead guitar & producer), James Monteith (rhythm guitar), Amos Williams (bass, backing vocals), and Jay Postones (drums, percussion).

TesseracT, one of the best bands in the business right now, have attempted their own re-imagining of their fantastic 2015 release Polaris, which was one of the best releases of 2015. Errai sees four songs from Polaris re-worked, eschewing the djent-grooves and pummelling drums for swelling synths and acoustic flourishes. It is very refreshing to hear TesseracT experimenting with things such as piano-driven passages and electronic drums.

As always, Daniel Tompkins puts in an absolutely stunning performance, and his voice really benefits from the more stripped back and slower instrumentation going on around him with the nuances in his vocals being very pronounced. The vocal performance on “Seven Names” is particularly spine-tingling, and is the strongest of the four songs on Errai, easily standing shoulder to shoulder with the original. “Survival” deserves a mention as well due to the wonderfully executed piano driving the entirety of the song

TesseracT are known for their grooves and complex rhythms, which may sometimes draw fans away from the vocal centre piece. Errai gives an opportunity for vocalist Tompkins to truly mesmerise listeners with his amazing vocal abilities, without competition from the rest of the music. The intense harmonies and addition in vocal parts to these reworked tracks really do bring Dan into a new light.

Check out the tracks: “Seven Names” and “Survival”.
