By strange twist of fate, pun intended, Twisted Tales were formed on the auspicious 8th of December 2004 in a small town of Kuršumlija, Serbia. Four long time friends and lifelong metal fans decided they wanted to play their own music instead of rehashing others’ music time and time again.
Our initial sound was pretty much underground, more of Melodic Death metal style laden with Black Metal influences, in which we recorded our first demo Behind the Gates of Eternity.
Shortly after, due to life’s circumstances we went on hiatus, only to be rejoined in 2009 as a Thrash/Death metal band. Why shift in the sound? Why not! It’s the music we all grew up listening to, so it came organically.
After lots of gigging and beer drinking across Serbia, we went to studio and in 2012 we published our first album called “We Shall be Heard”. The album received mostly favorable reviews, and upon its release we continued touring around Serbia.
In 2014 we had our first experience playing abroad, touring Poland and Slovakia, together with Russian Death Metal band Tacit Fury.
Afterwards we started working on new songs for the follow-up. The album was out in Serbia on auspicious date of May the fourth (geek alert here) 2019, and the title is Bringer of Woe.
Different thing about this record is that we did it in our own studio, which we like to call the Twisted Studios, just for the hack of it, everything, from recording to mixing the whole thing, so we could as well be labeled a DIY band :)
Next step for us is the worldwide promotion of our new album that kicked off on September 20th 2019.
