The minute you press play on "Twisted Minds" you're immediately struck by the electric guitar riff that serves as the song's opening salvo. It's a bold, in-your-face introduction that sets the stage for the high-energy journey that awaits us. The first thing that caught my attention in this song was the guitar work. It was nothing short of extraordinary and truly left me in awe. The intricate riffs, the pulsing exuberance, and the raw emotion that was poured into each note left me speechless. The vocals were truly impressive, the lead singer's voice was powerful and vibrant, taking the listener on a journey of lyricism and emotions. The words, "Twisted minds always dance on the truth / While I might have been blind / I’m just too tired and don’t want to play / fool anymore", were particularly striking and you'll find yourself fully absorbed in the meaning behind them.
I, for one, fell even more in love with this band after listening to this song and I highly recommend it to anyone who appreciates good music. So go check "Twisted Minds" out now on Spotify, and follow Gary Dranow along with the Manic Emotions on social media for constant updates.
