Twenty Six Other Worlds is young metal band from the small island of Malta in the Mediterranean (find Italy, then Sicily, and head due south). Awash in a mammoth amount of inspiration from the likes of Iron Maiden, Dream Theater, Paganís Mind, Symphony X, Machine Head, and Liquid Tension Experiment, 26OW plays complex and often heavy progressive metal. Their first EP Manipulated may contain only four songs, but it is not brief with all songs clocking in better than seven minutes each. And every song is a sonic adventure enveloping diverse compositions of intriguing movements, tempos, and musicianship. They venture into more modern nuances on As I Call on the Dark and Lady Deadly with some well-developed riffing and menacing vocals. Yet nowhere is melody or delicate compositional strategy shortchanged. Twenty Six Other Worlds pulls out all the stops on their premier Manipulated for a result which shows a maturity beyond their collective experience.
