The Contortionist released Language in September to some high critical acclaims. Popular alternative weekly The Aquarian says the LP “keeps up with this idea of call and response between spacey ambient melodies and heavy-hitting metal tunes all the way through its 48-minute run.” Outburn Magazine calls it “a richly layered, atmospheric, and evocative record” and Substream Magazine goes as far to say that “What The Contortionist has given us isn’t space travel but a journey through a dream state.” in their 5/5 review.
The band just wrapped up a highly successful run with PROTEST THE HERO in Europe. Click here for all tour dates.
