Twitching Tongues Disharmony on LP
Led by brothers Colin Young (vocals) and Taylor Young (guitars/vocals) - also of grindcore band Nails - Twitching Tongues has carved out a prominent place in Los Angeles' burgeoning music scene over the last several years. With two albums, Sleep Therapy (2012) and In Love There Is No Law (2013), under their belts and extensive worldwide touring, the band has quickly managed to become one of the underground's most discussed bands and are on the cusp of a major breakout with the release of their Metal Blade debut Disharmony.
Disharmony is a powerful display of unrelenting sound. The band wastes no time ripping into the record with the title track that perfectly showcases their unique blend of doom, sludge and hardcore. Disharmony features ten aggressive tracks like "Asylum Avenue" and "Sacrifice Me" that find a balance between accessibility and cataclysmic destruction.
"We feel that we've finally written the record we were supposed to make. This is what we've been building up to since we started the band," states Colin. "We've always put everything we've got into our music, but this one is more personal. It's darker, it's more aggressive, and I'm sure it will be more polarizing too, but we're more invested in it than anything we've done before, and we couldn't be prouder of the end result."
It only takes one listen of Disharmony to be convinced of Young's claim. Shot through with urgency, everything exists on an emotional razor's edge, it is a more ambitious record, more dynamic, and more achingly frank. Moreover, with each successive exposure to the record it reveals hidden depths and richer melodies, drawing the listener further and further into both the musical fabric and the exposed emotional state of Young.
