Warped time signatures, percussive mathematics, spider-fingered fretwork, dazzlingly atmospheric keyboards and immediately arresting vocals collide within The Contortionist, who have achieved a career defining milestone with a "sophomore slump"-defying feat of agility dubbed Intrinsic. The Indiana based prog-metal alchemists conjure the kinetic texture of Rush, the cinematic musicality of Dream Theater, the heavy but heady metallic might of jazzy death wizards Cynic and the studied experimental precision of Between The Buried And Me while simultaneously fashioning an overall sound uniquely their own.
