Twisted Method - "Better than average" is an understatement.

"How I came to own the CD is almost quite humorous when I look back on it, but the ultimate point is that not for a moment have I regretted spending the money on this CD.
But I bought it, almost expecting not to like the music, for I'm somewhat critical when it comes to new bands. So I popped the CD in, and was almost immediately drawn in. The first track, cleverly titled "The End", is the perfect song to get the blood pumping and a crowd roaring, with its fast, hard beat, and drawn-out screaming; it is immediately followed by "Fled", a song that, no matter how hard you try, is unable to keep you sitting still. Songs like "Akward Silence" "Newborn", and "Shine" are more harmonious, slower-paced songs in which raw emotion is easily heard through Tripp's voice, which ranges anywhere and everywhere from screaming to soulful throughout the record. Examples of songs that contain and display a variety of styles are "Reach", "Inside Out" and "Rot".
The band chooses not to define themselves as "nu-metal", but "crack-rock"; a bit faster-paced than your average metal band. The members themselves have musical influences ranging from hard rock to R&B to rap, all of which helped contribute to this unique blend of various rock/rap styles on this 13-track disc. And unlike most new bands in this genre, you cannot accuse Twisted Method of having a song that sounds the same as the next.
In conclusion, if you have the money, it's worth checking out - if not, have a listen at the sound samples offered on this site, and other music sites. If you think you like what you hear, save up and buy it. And if you don't like it, I'm sure you'll find a friend who will.-Nikki"

"Prepare to see them in Ozzfest 2003, after you're heard Twisted Method's debut, "Escape From Cape Coma" (the title being a reference to Cape Coral, their hometown, which has "newly wed, the nearly dead, and everyone in between"). Raw, roaring, it smacks you in the face and leaves you breathless. In a good way."Escape" flares up with the searing opener "The End," the faster and louder "Fled," the explosively anguished "Reach" ("reach out your hands to me!"), the more complex "Change" (which dips down to a soft, almost ballad-like tone, then blasts back to full-out rock), the excellent "Awkward Silence," the fantastic "Shine," the catchier, rough-edged "125" and the equally searing closing track, "Faceless" (the title is shouted with such intensity that I winced).If you don't like your music angry, you won't like Twisted Method. "Escape" brims over with four letter words and even the not-so-angry songs contain lyrics like "It's building up inside I know I've had enough/1,2,3 blow it up!" Elsewhere the songs let rip with "Empty a clip to ease my pain/I have this hate for everything." Even so, there's some different feeling in some of the songs, such as "Where is my place in life?/Why can't I get it right?/Tell me what I'm going through/Where are we going to turn to?"These four, who have been a band since high school (Derek pawned his Playstation for a bass), don't pull any musical punches. The guitar-led music blasts through like some sort of elegantly choreographed explosion. The vocals range between smooth, controlled singing and an anguished howl that perfectly matches the guitarwork.It's hard to have any "halfway" feelings about Twisted Method's explosive debut. It'll hit you hard and fast, and leave you thinking over what it is you've heard -- the "Escape From Cape Coma.""
