Based out of Indianapolis, Indiana, progressive metal quintet the Contortionist draw from influences as diverse as Meshuggah, Dream Theater, Isis, Rush, and Pat Metheny. Formed in 2007 around the talents of vocalist Jonathan Carpenter, guitarists Robby Baca and Cameron Maynard, bass player Christopher Tilley, and drummer Joey Baca, the band released a pair of EPs (Shapeshifter and Apparition) in 2008 and 2009, respectively, before unleashing their well-received full-length debut, Exoplanet, in 2010. The Contortionist's sophomore outing, Intrinsic, arrived in 2012 by way of E1/Good Fight Music. ~ James Christopher Monger
