CD Review: A Couple Heavy Metal Halloween Releases From Twitching Tongues And RAM

The day before Halloween we will see the new releases from heavy metal band RAM and the Metal Blade Records debut from Twitching Tongues. Brothers Colin and Taylor Young started Twitching Tongues back in 2009, but their sound was all over the place. The new album, "Disharmony" was influenced by King Diamond as the Young brothers honed their skills on the road before entering the studio for what could be the most important album of their career, so far. Beginning with the tempo changes of the title song "Disharmony," Twitching Tongues want to make sure their presence is known. They follow with the hard-hitting "Insincerely Yours" and the chugging rhythm of "Asylum Avenue." They speed things up with the thrash metal thunder of "Cannibal," before closing with with the eight-minute doom metal of "Cruci-Fiction."

The new release from RAM with be the band's fourth full-length release since their beginnings back in 1999. The new album titled "Svbversvm" showcases some of the band's best songwriting as they also tap the vein of King Diamond on this latest release. The album opens with the screams of "Return Of The Iron Tyrant" as the music is just electrifying. They get the blood pumping with the quick, adrenaline fueled "Eyes Of The Night" and "The Usurper," which has the perfect New Wave of British Heavy Metal vibe that can easily be compared to Judas Priest. Their sound in "The Omega Device" has a timeless heavy metal quality to it, while "The Forbidden Zone" pushes the eight-minute mark with RAM traveling into progressive metal territory. The album closes with the title-song "Svbversvm," which motors through with screaming vocals and chugging guitars.
