Sonically the songs are focused on mechanical, sci-fi based sound effects and an atmospheric, outer space vibe throughout. The story is about an alien being who discovers Earth and stops by for a visit, leaving behind a time capsule of other worldly music. The album features vocal contributions from Jill Freisinger on 5 songs and is now available in "Deluxe" version including all 10 instrumentals.

Love That Kills is the fifth solo album from Ollie Twist and was released on June 1, 2012. This record is a big departure from the signature hip hop brand that Rhyme Skeme albums captured up to this point. The tracks on this record toggle between lust and the romantic, the pure and the mischievous. Love That Kills is stocked with ballads and more singing than rapping in most cases. Notably the album features singer Jill Freisinger on several tracks including the single "The Whole World Will Know".

Love That Kills is a personal metamorphosis and a musical evolution for Ollie Twist, bringing along with him contributions from other Rhyme Skeme members Avatar, General Doobe and Jiceman (currently The Wickkid One). Thematically the record takes you through the process of rebirth and reconnection, it's focus is relationships and intimacy. The Deluxe versions includes 5 extra tracks previously unreleased.

O L I V E R is an instrumental album from Ollie Twist that was released in 2010 and is his fourth solo effort. The instrumental concept came from a number of fans who had expressed interest. The songs on this album showcase electric guitar as the primary instrument, demonstrating a wide spectrum of versatility with digital effects.

The tracks on this project are wild compositions weaving back forth between heavily distorted guitar tracks and ambient soundscapes with strings and flutes. This album was recorded back and forth between Twist Blade Studios and Under The Dome Labs. It was released as an internet exclusive and reception was positive. There are only 2 tracks with vocals - "Stay With Me" featuring Jill Freisinger and "What You're Told" with vocals by Ollie Twist.
