Release Date: 30 October 2015
Metal Blade
Review by Brenton Harris

LA’s Twitching Tongues are touted as one of metal’s most exciting acts. On third full-length Disharmony they live up to the hype, delivering 45 minutes of genre-defying chaos that will leave your mind broken but your ears begging for more. Disharmony’s piano-led intro provides an eerie atmosphere before Taylor Young and F. Sean Martin unleash a barrage of blistering riffs, beatdowns and solos destined to be the cause of many headbanging related RSI’s.

Nodding respectfully to the past with doomy undertones and raw production while pointing to the future with chameleonic qualities, Disharmony is like a metalhead’s wet-dream. As Entombed style breakdowns and face-melting Slayer-esque riffs meld with the monster grooves of Pantera and High On Fire sludge passages (Insincerely Yours, Insatiable Sin) it’s hard to fathom how in hades they make it all work. Colin Young’s beastly yet melodic vocals provide the answer. Whether barking over the thrashy Cannibal or crooning on Type O Negative influenced melodrama of Arrival, Young’s distinct voice and dark lyricism are the glue that holds Disharmony together, resulting in a metal horn emoji worthy listening experience.
