Spaniolo and Methric are former members of the group House of Krazees, which disbanded in 1997 a year after the duo's departure, they released their debut album in 1997.

Bruce was impressed, invited Methric and Spaniolo to perform on The House of Horrors Tour, signed them to Psychopathic Records. Before the tour kicked off, Bruce and Spaniolo decided on a name that they felt would better fit the duo—"Twiztid". Twiztid's 1998 debut album, was released independently by Psychopathic; when Insane Clown Posse signed with Island Records, they helped get a deal for Twiztid as well. In 1999, Mostasteless was pulled, re-released on Island with somewhat different track listing; that track listing included brand new songs, but left out tracks such as "Murder Murder Murder" and "She Ain't Afraid" because of uncleared samples. In his review of the reissued album, Allmusic's Stephen Thomas Erlewine wrote that " the thought of a group of Insane Clown Posse protégés isn't inspiring", the album "may take you by surprise...

Mostasteless works better than most ICP records," that "Twiztid is more convincing than Dark Carnival colleagues," and concluded that "if you don't buy into the whole comic book-horror schtick, Mostasteless...will be irritating, but if you've bought into it, you'll enjoy this record as much, if not more, than most ICP albums." Mostasteless peaked at #8 on the Billboard Top Heatseekers chart, #149 on the Billboard 200. On October 31, 2000, Twiztid released their second studio album and second overall album, Freek Show. In his review of the album, Allmusic's Brad Mills wrote that "this kind of music appeals to a small sector of hip-hop listeners and will do well within niche market, but the average hip-hop listener will just have to understand that this is a different kind of album." The album peaked at #51 on the Billboard 200. Twiztid released their first compilation album and third overall album, Cryptic Collectionon November 13, 2000. Twiztid released their 2nd compilation album and fourth overall album Cryptic Collection Vol. 2 on October 22, 2001.

On April 8, 2002, Twiztid released 5th overall album, Mirror Mirror.

Twiztid released their third EP and eighth overall album titled Fright Fest'03 at their Fright Fest 2003 show.

Bruce Arden

Bruce Wesley Arden is an American computer scientist. Arden enlisted in the U. S. Navy during World War II as a Radar Technician Third Class in California and Kodiak, Alaska, he graduated from Purdue University with a BS in 1949 and started his computing career in 1950 with the wiring and programming of IBM's hybrid Card Programmed Computer/Calculator at the Allison Division of General Motors. Next he spent a short period as a programmer for computations being done at the University of Michigan's Willow Run Laboratory using the Standards Eastern Automatic Computer, he became a Research Associate at the University of Michigan's Statistical Research Laboratory and an Associate Director of the University's Computing Center after its establishment in 1959. While at Michigan he co-authored two compilers, GAT for the IBM 650 and MAD for the IBM 704/709/7090, was involved in the design of the architecture and negotiations with IBM over the virtual memory features that would be included in what became the IBM System/360 Model 67 computer, in the initial design of the Michigan Terminal System time-sharing operating system.

U-M Vice President for Research Geoffrey Norman, writing in 1976, gave special credit to a triumvirate of Michigan computer specialists who contributed to the future of computing at Michigan and in the nation as a whole. "Bartels and Westervelt," Norman has said, "were a team that we took great care should not be broken up or induced to leave the University. Westervelt, the hardware expert, brilliant in software and logic, Bartels orchestrating their progress-these three put together a superb timesharing computer system; the University and their faculty colleagues owe them much."Arden's increasing interest in academic computer science and engineering motivated him to complete a doctoral program in Electrical Engineering in 1965. He was subsequently a professor in, Chairman of, the Computer and Communication Sciences department at Michigan. In 1973 he accepted a professorship at Princeton University and chaired the department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. In 1986 Princeton's Alexander Doty Professor of Engineering, he went to the University of Rochester as its Dean of the College of Engineering and Applied Science.

In the three years preceding the addition of "Emeritus" to his academic title in 1995, he served as Rochester's Vice Provost for Telecommunications and Computing. During his academic career, Arden wrote two books on numerical computation and edited another on computer science and engineering research, he wrote many papers in the areas of operating systems, computer logic and networks. In addition, he supervised many students, both undergraduate and graduate, in their studies of the various aspects of computing, he served as a consultant to government agencies and several major computer companies at various times during those years, he lives in Michigan and Maine.
