5 stars Twisted Into Form is a new tech/ jazz fusion metal band. Not fusion in the sense that there are free improvisation, rather there are pretty strict and well played interplay between the musicians. Twisted Into Form sounds a lot like Spiral Architect, allthough their production is a bit more modern and balanced. But I guess that is plausible as the guitarist used to play with Spiral Architect.

The music is very powerful and there are new things to discover every time you listen to the album. The singer sounds very much like Oyvind Haegeland from Spiral Architect. I know I keep saying that Twisted Into Form reminds me of Spiral Architect but it is impossible not to notice the many parallels. This could have been Spiral Architects sophmore album. This does not make them a ripp-off though as they do have their own characteristics.

The musicianship is really astonishing and this has to be one of the best prog/ Tech metal albums ever made. They stay clear of any Dream Theater inspiration and that is nice for a change in a genre where almost everyone sounds like a clone. People into Cynic, Watchtower, Spastic Ink and Atheist should give "Then Comes Affliction To Awaken The Dreamer" a chance, as many of the things played here are in that vein. So buckle up and get ready for some tech metal madness. A highly recommendable album.

( Im not sure about this, but the name Twisted Into Form probably comes from the Forbidden album Twisted Into Form ???)

UMUR | 5/5 |
