Biography

The Vivid Twisted, an Industrial Dance Metal band based out of New Jersey, has forged their own unique blend of horror, dance metal, and darkness to create an intense style and sound complimented by their onstage precision and theatrics. TVT is not just a band, but a constantly evolving musical product manifested by the darker aspects of the band’s psyche.

Formed in May of 2006,TVT started working on their first album, “Black & White”. Upon finishing the album in September of 2007, TVT played over 100 shows within their first year. Constantly playing their music in live settings made them one of the tightest live bands in the tri-state area. After extensive touring and the release of their first full length they spread their regional touring area to 7 states and various major cities including New York, Chicago, and Philadelphia.

Over the last few years, The Vivid Twisted evolved musically as well as visually. They moved on to a smaller group with a more defined purpose, to create Industrial Dance Metal. As the music evolved, theatrics became a major part of the show, each member of the band developed their own alter egos with make-up and costumes to establish a stage presence like no other.

Influenced by various metal and industrial artists of the ‘90s and ‘00s, TVT attributes their music to the merging of punk, metal, industrial, and dance music. The love of such diverse bands as Rammstein, The Clash, Johnny Cash, KMFDM, and many others makes The Vivid Twisted live up to their name.
In 2009, TVT went back into the studio to record their second full length album, “Terror Violence Technology”. Due out in January of 2010, TVT’s new album “TVT” promises to be something you will want to experience.

The Vivid Twisted is a musical revolution for the 21st century, mixing various genres to create a sound unlike any other. Known for their tight live shows and outrageous onstage presence, they amaze new fans and thrill old ones at every show. What separates them from other unsigned bands is their musical talent, professionalism, discipline, and ability to cross the line when it comes to writing innovative music. Always working on new material, they have made a commitment, to themselves and their fans, to create one of the most entertaining and interesting rock shows out there. The Vivid Twisted has become something more than the people in the band but the experience itself.
