New The Contortionist Song
2012-06-11 by G.M.B. | 186 Comments
Progressive metal outfit The Contortionist have released a new track, entitled "Holomovement" from upcoming album Intrinsic, which is set to drop on July 17th on eOne/Good Fight Music.

The track shows a far more progressive-focused effort, with very little of the heavier sections found on their previous effort, Exoplanet.

The song can be streamed here: http://www.metalsucks.net/2012/06/11/exclusive-premiere-the-contortionists-holomovement-song-lyric-video/

definitely not too fantastic. I enjoyed it, but the production on the vocals was lacking, i thought.
They hit it perfectly on their debut. i was expecting a production style similar, but who the fuck
cares it's about the music right?

Musically, it was just aight.

Cool but totally cock-tease deep cut depriving me of zee metal. I'm sure the album will be good tho, they should be able to outdo Exoplanet.

After hearing this and the other two songs they've played live, I am so god damned pumped.

You can also tell from the other live songs that the whole album is not going to sound like this.
Very odd choice for a single in my opinion.

This was amazing... Even more pumped for the new album now =) definitely going to be a first day buy for me. And for everyone saying this is too "mellow"... The band stated previously that they were going to be moving a way from the deathcore sound and start playing more stuff like this. Which I like, I love their ambient parts they sound so good. But, regardless it's going to be a great album with parts everyone will like whether it be ambient or deathcore... it will be there.

I'm a fan of their really melodic pieces, more so than the really heavy pieces. I don't really want this album to be "SUPER BR00TAL" or anything like that, I'm just not a big fan of overkill on the ambient sections. Something in between this and their heavy stuff would make me happy.

I thought the production was fine, his cleans are good, way better than the stupid vocoder parts on exoplanet. Also, this isn't one of the most straight-forward tracks on the album, they just wanted to give you a taste of what's new, not try and spoil it.

Nobody here said that everyone should have the same opinion about Exoplanet. You're completely twisting things so you have something to argue about. We stated our opinion, you stated yours while insulting us for ours, and then somehow twisted it into people saying that there was an objectively correct opinion to the album.

Wow, Rosa is in the right here. He stated his opinion that he didn't find the album to have much to remember about. However, Dangler says he's wrong because it was memorable for him? That is Rosa's opinion not yours. It's unbelievable how butthurt people get hurt when a band they like is given an opinion by someone who found it to be average to them. Shall I point out the Northlane thread when it first started? At least Chuck doesn't start a war although, yes, he does disagree.

"I'm stupid? I can almost bet you're going to 5 this before it comes like you did with Counterparts and so many other bands you hype up immediately before releases. I meant to say Exoplanet as a prog record. Little mix up but I think you'd understand what I meant by it. Also, Exoplanet is NOT prog. It has elements of it but is it purely a prog album? Fuck no."

hahaha, oh no man! don't use my ratings against me cause that really invalidates anything else I've said prior to that comment. especially since nobody said anything about hyping this record. or counterparts for that matter. and i love how exoplanet went from being "not even close to prog" to "it has elements of prog"

i'm seriously done now because you've already proven to be as stupid as your "i listen to this so i'm better derp" attitude

alot different from what i expected but totally digging it. It's only the intro to the album so I'm sure it will sound totally different.

Theirs a huge difference between elements of prog compared to a full prog album. Also, I never said I dislike this band or Counterparts so I don't know where the "i listen to this so i'm better derp" attitude came from. I actually enjoyed Exoplanet and Counterparts but you immediately took what I said and assumed I hated it. Truth is I was calling you out for making yourself look like a fool earlier. Although, when you continue to argue it only made it worse.

First half of song rivaled oscillator as something worth immediate replay.

Also can we please kick Rosa out for such idiotic comparisons like paralleling billions of breakdowns (exoplanet) with heaviness. There's gotta be a final straw on this site.

This is the most ridiculous argument ever XD two people thinking they are both out-logicing each other... Grow up haha...

And a more relevant note, song rocks and have been listening too it quite a bit as of recent. I'm excited to see how this ties in with the rest of the album.

Lots of Prog vs. This Isn't Prog. Along with a ton of idiots trying to define the genre and lots of 'ugh deathcore'.

if Intrinsic mostly runs along the lines of this song then The Contortionist shall simply be progressive metal

I really dig the clean vox in this song, way better than the stupid vocoder they used on the last album.

agreed cynic does it well. I just feel the vocoder made 'the contortionist' somewhat unique, plus it
fit the space elements/theme; now they sound more like everyone else.

What happened to the vocals that were on "Flourish" those were perfect for this band's ambient style. Also fuck lyrics videos, I hate the way they present lyrics to you, it really kills a song for me.

Lyric videos are the new trend apparently. It must be for idiots who can't understand lyrics.

Or...it can be a financial issue..It's cheaper to make a lyrical video than a music video.

I rather enjoyed that, actually. It went through a lot of intriguing shifts. I have high hopes for this new release. I think it will show a slew more variety.

I'm friends with their merch guy and he says the new album is better than Exoplanet. He might be biased because he's practically a band member in the sense that he's with them 24/7, but I don't think he'd say that if he didn't mean it.
