Twisted Into Form  


Spiral Architect remain one of the few bands who truly deserve the tag "technical progressive metal", and their 2000 debut A Sceptic's Universe (sadly, their only album) is still regarded as a landmark album. Twisted Into Form features two members with ties to Spiral Architect, in vocalist Leif Knashaug (who, as a session vocalist, sang on an early SA demo) and guitarist Kaj Gornitzka, who left SA shortly after the release of Universe. Released in 2006, TIF's Then Comes Affliction To Awaken The Dreamer continues the tech prog metal direction of Spiral Architect, with some impressive riff/tempo changes (shades of prime Watchtower at times), a solid and adventurous rhythm section, and clear vocals from Knashaug. Technical though this is, it's also relatively in control, in contrast to some of the more spastic tech death bands and The Dillinger Escape Plan clones that have sprouted up in recent times. For a variety of reasons, tech bands normally have a relatively short lifespan, recording sporadically at best (witness the aforementioned Spiral Architect and Watchtower, and one might include Cynic in this group) -- time will tell if Twisted Into Form will suffer a similar fate. Tech prog fans should instantly take a liking to these guys.
