Featuring members of Omnium Gatherum, Insomnium and more, MALPRACTICE’s output has drawn comparisons to Queensryche, Fates Warning, Dream Theater and Megadeth. Having been in operation since 1994, among several independently-released EPs, the band has released three albums to date, including their debut Of Shape And Balance through Mastervox Records and the subsequent Deviation From The Flow and Triangular full-lengths, both through Spinefarm Records. Now in their twentieth year, their incoming fourth LP, and first for American progressive metal label Sensory Records, Turning Tides showcases nearly forty-five minutes of brand new material, representing MALPRACTICE at their absolute best, combining intricate progressive metal with catchy melodies topped with excellent musicianship and brilliant vocal harmonies. Professionally recorded by the members of the band, Turning Tides was produced by the band’s Joonas Koto and Toni Paananen and engineered by Koto, then mixed and mastered by Anssi Kippo at Astia-Studio A and bears artwork by Miikka Tikka.
