The Contortionist

contortionist-95The Contortionist represents fearlessness in musical expression, designed to please artist as much as audience. This band makes progressive metal music, anchored in the heavy sounds that first drew the individual players to the stage, yet unmoored by convention or expectation.On Clairvoyant, the bands distinctive fingerprints remain, even as their atmospheric flourishes broaden to encompass ever-richer textures and mine the beauty of simplicity.

In its 5/5 review, Substream praised the album as being akin to a journey through a dream state. Prog Metal Zone was similarly kind, awarding the album 10/10 and remarking on its propulsive drum rhythms, ambient keyboards, fusion, and astonishingly inventive flight(s) of musicality. Clairvoyant, which reunited the band with producer Jamie King (Between The Buried And Me, Through The Eyes Of The Dead), takes the best elements of The Contortionists past and reshapes them as the band follows their individual creative muses toward the future.The Contortionist ultimately prove to have as much in comm
