Twisted Species formed early February 2009 with a vision to create a disitinctive Rock sound, inspired by their various influences. The ongoing focus is to create, play and promote their own brand of Grunge/Metal.
Dave Gandon (Vocals/Lead Guitar) and Stuart Reynolds (Drums) are heavilly influenced by Grunge, particularly the Seattle Sound. Ralph Corn (Rhythm/Lead Guitar) takes a more Metal outlook on life and Luke Hudson (Bass - also a classically taught Guitarist) brings a Punk & Funk theme. Hard work and commitment bring all these influences together in a powerful and entertaining way. The first year has proved to be very productive, they have appeared on Radio, in magazines, newspapers and been involved in Charity events very close to their hearts.
With the release of their first studio EP (Tormented) , the band have made this available to the public at an affordable price, by promoting it through Bandcamp.com, various social networking sites and also their own website www.twistedspecies.com
Gig highlights include playing to a packed Slade Rooms in Wolverhampton (Emma Scott Presents), The Shires Bike Rally, The Varsity Wolverhampton, The Place (Oakengates Theatre) and progressing in the Surface Festival, despite being involved in a thrash metal dominated line-up. Repeat bookings are currently being taken and many new opportunities are coming though very fast at the time of writing.
