Twin Atlantic are one of the most exciting rock bands to come out of Scotland in many years. Hailing from Glasgow, they signed to Red Bull Records worldwide after releasing a single on King Tut’s own label, and later an EP themselves. Having reached the level in Glasgow where without a record deal they could sell out the 900 capacity QMU they signed a worldwide record deal and began recording their debut mini album in Los Angeles. Produced by John Travis (Kid Rock, Static X) Vivarium showcases the more rock-orientated side of the bands music.

I know that being Scottish, Twin Atlantic are inevitably (and perhaps lazily) going to be compared to their fellow countrymen Biffy Clyro. But if you are a fan of the latter then you will no doubt like this band - think of something that sounds like a cross between new/old Biffy Clyro but also brings something new to the table.
Additionally, the album sleeve has a nice "pop-out" effect which although obviously doesn't add or take anything away from the music, provides a nice touch and reflects the amount of effort and thought that has gone into this EP.
Although some tracks are better than others, this is an excellent debut and shows a great sign of things to come by Twin Atlanic. I am very much looking forward to their next release!
beyond its weight. 'Vivarium' has more than enough good
energy to keep us warm during the dark months ahead.
This Glasgow four-piece have a secure future guaranteed.
Sam McTrusty (Vocals/guitar) is a terrific front man; the
strong vernacular accent enhancing his feisty performances.
Barry McKenna (guitar/backing vocals) and Ross McNae
(bass/backing vocals & piano) provide solid support throughout.
'Lightspeed' is a blistering opening anthem, driven
powerfully along by Craig Kneale's rock-solid drums.
It's a cracking and uplifting ensemble piece.
This is one tight little unit. The sound raw, electric
but always tightly controlled. Producer John Travis
understands exactly what's needed and captures
the band's vivacious essence perfectly.
'Old Grey Face (And The Way Of The Magenta)' is a stunning
piece of staccato mayhem. A prizefighting performance so good
it made me laugh out loud with joy ! It really is a corker!
All eight tracks are wild and wise and totally convincing.
The pitter-patter opening of final number 'Better Weather'
heralds a really beautiful composition. Sensitive, reflective
and indicative of Twin Atlantic's ability to lay back into
a good tune as well deliver constructive pandemonium.
Roll-on the next installment!
The first signed album I think its great, being more in the heavier rocky stuff this is great!
