Twin Method
The Abrasive

Certainly, Twin Method is by far the most commercially oriented act on the roster of Crash Music. Listening to this single, which is intended to build anticipation for the band’s forthcoming summer release, The Volume Of Self, it’s pretty apparent that Twin Method has a certain affection for Mudvayne. Toss in a touch of Linkin Park and there you have it – music that begs to be placed on the airwaves, yet retains enough of an edgy, muscular presence to be quite appealing to damn near any fan of Nu Metal.

Focused on melody in tandem with aggressive undertones, Twin Method makes an excellent first impression with “The Abrasive,” a powerful cut that’s highlighted by excellent production, smart arrangement and a decidedly headbanging rhythm.

As a “B-side,” “Lost Signal” incorporates a bit more of the aforesaid Linkin Park influence, replacing the rap metal vox with vocals that frankly, sound very much like Chad Gray.

If that sounds like your musical cup of tea, you’re sure to enjoy the band’s debut when it hits the shelves in mid-June.
