'Language' is an album that is best described as what happens when skilled technical death metal musicians decide to use their powers in service of light. True to their name, The Contortionist crafted an album that contorts passages of ineffable beauty with mind numbing technical heaviness. It would seem the personnel changes at vocals and keyboards during this time enabled The Contortionist to mature their sound and drop any lingering hamminess prevalent in previous releases. Perhaps most importantly, ‘Language’ is the album that most effectively captures everything modern progressive metal acts have been trying to accomplish. ‘Language’ proves that when you have the talent, only your imagination can limit you.
