A different producer was drafted each time The Contortionist has made an album.
Album of the year for me, without question. The progressive metal masterminds out of Indiana have gone away from their former sound, but in doing so have made something really spectacular. Now armed with Michael Lessard (Last Chance to Reason) on vocals, Jordan Ebherardt (Scale the Summit) on bass, and Eric Guenther (Daath) on keyboards; The Contortionist are ready to take over the world.
The album was produced by Jamie King (Between the Buried and Me, He Is Legend, The Human Abstract, among many others). During an AMA session, which took place on September 12, a question regarding Christopher Tilley's departure was answered, the band's response was: "Touring and all that comes with it just wasn't what Tilley wanted to do anymore. We love Chris and wish him the best!" The band released their fourth album, entitled Clairvoyant, on 15th September 2017. This album featured a softer sound, with predominantly clean vocals.
