TWISTED INTO FORM
THEM COMES AFFLICTIONTO AWAKEN THE DREAMER
Norwegian metal dudes from a few different bands join forces, get all progressive, and reach jazzy peaks and technical metal excellence on Twisted Into Form's latest 10-track release. There's a slew of funk protruding out of tracks like "The Thin Layers of Lust and Love", while "Tear" and "Erased" display the relationship this band forges by capturing the sound of doom metal shaking hands with jazz fusion. If you've got a flare for adventure, can tolerate splashes of wankery and overindulgence, and own any Malmsteen or Watchtower disc, tracks like "Instinct Solitaire" and "Manumit" properly mesh the avant-garde and traditional metal from which Twisted Into Form draws its strength from.
