The Contortionist - Intrinsic - 2012

Band: The Contortionist
Album: Intrinsic
Country: USA

Release date: July 17, 2012
Label: Season Of Mist
Genre: Progressive Deathcore
Existed since: 2007


I began listening to this band just before the summer, with their previous release Exoplanet, which i think had some killer tracks n solid punch to it. This release is a total different experience. Its more ambient n softer, but still has some great deathmetal blended in.
I think lotsa deathcore band this days r widening their perspective n r looking for influences in different places, not only deathmetal n techdeath. I mentioned ambient before, but in some places on this record i even hear house influence n by that i dont mean the drumming n bass, but the sound. In the beginning of this millenium i was totally into the electronic scene n i dont know if they have listened to the same stuff i did, but i just wanna throw a electronic duo name out who i digged so much, Crazy Penis...crazy name, i know, but they were so good.
But there r a progressive techdeath band i hear lotsa influences from on this album n thats Cynic. Been a while since i listened to the Focus-album, but there r lot of Traced In Air here.
For ppl who like their deathcore hard throughout, this is not for u. If u looking for great melodies, relaxation n hardness, go check it out.
