Sometime during high school, when I was still primitively checking out new music to listen through iTunes store recommendations, I stumbled upon an album by a certain band by the name of The Contortionist. After listening to a few samples, I denounced the band as just another lame deathcore project. Been there, done fucking that. Right? Wrong. About a few months later, I was recommended the  band again by a friend. Reluctantly, I listened to the album only to find myself floating through space, checking out meteors, high on the sounds of what I can only describe as space metal.  Appropriately, The Contortionist are streaming their sophomore album, Intrinsic, over at AOL Music and I implore you to not make the same mistake I made initially. Seat up, strap in, and prepare to fly a rocketship to Mars as you view the complete destruction of the human race.

Stream the whole album here, pick it up here and check them out on any of the following dates off their Metalsucks sponsored headlining tour with the mighty Jeff Loomis, the groovy Chimp Spanner, and the all too brutal 7 Horns 7 Eyes:
