“id.entity is not only a multiple play on words, but a coming out party for self awareness.” comments vocalist Jason Pennington.

With more songs in their arsenal for a full length to follow this EP and influenced by bands such as Opeth, Mastodon, Devin Townsend, Gojira, and Augury, id is sharing with metallers what’s to come as they push forward to put themselves on the map. Employing a style that is different compared to other progressive bands, id. transcend genres with a line up of Vancouver metal scene veterans that includes lyricist and vocalist Jason Pennington (Makaria), drummer Kris DeBoer (Grudge, Infernal Majesty, Artep), rhythm guitarist Tyson Araszewski (AutumnEx) and guitarist Alex Dubreuil (My Own Chaos) who also does bass on the EP.

Band Fact: The story behind the EP Title: Sagittarius A is the name of the black hole in the center of our galaxy. The idea comes from a fundamental belief in a scientific world view, free of religious influence and tyranny. It outlines how people are susceptible to believe things without evidence if it appeals to their vanity, as opposed to being presented with evidence and being able to accept something that is inherently contradictory to their intuition.
