THE CONTORTIONIST have debuted a brand new music video today for their single, “Dreaming Schematics.” For fans familiar with their last video for “Causality,”you will see a definitive correlation between the two! Front man Jonathan Carpenter comments, “We’re very pleased with the vibe captured in our new video. It has a very spacey look and that fits the ethereal sounds of the song.” Click the image above or HERE to view.

“The band’s ability to balance chaos and solemnity have never been better. Breaking from soft, ethereal passages into grueling, mosh-ready grooves at the drop of a hat.” – Altpress.com
“The Contortionist have mastered the perfect balance of deathcore and prog with just enough weird atmospheric noise to put them ahead of the pack.” – Exclaim!
“This is certainly one of the most exciting metal albums of the year, and it shows that The Contortionist is definitely going places in the very near future.” – Metal Injection
“Make no mistake here – ‘Intrinsic’ puts The Contortionist at the top of the list for the future of prog-metal, if not the genre’s present as well.” – Absolutepunk.net
“The Contortionist are, without a doubt, one of the most exciting young prog-metal bands on the scene today.” – MetalSucks
“The Contortionist have succeeded in pulling away from the pack to secure their spot as one of the strongest progressive acts around. Intrinsic has all the potential to become a prog classic, and by all rights should.” 9/10 – Mind Equals Blown
“It is not a record to put on while studying or in the car, but on a good stereo or set of headphones and really kick back and get immersed. It truly deserves your full attention, and so does this band.” About.com
