The formation of the Swiss based thrash metal band CONTORSION took place in summer 2004. Founded by Marc Torretti (guitar) and Mättu Eschmann (drums), they were joined by Dani Bürkli (bass) soon.
After some productive writing sessions and an endless search for a guitarist and singer, two guitarists were found with Sime Freiburghaus and Luca Rossi. Marc changed into the vacant singer position and CONTORSION were soon ready for the first live gigs. During the next 2 years, lots of stages were successfully burned down by their powerful live performances, amongst others as support for bands like One Man Army And The Undead Quartett, Born From Pain, Cataract and GurD.
In January 2010 was the release of the first full-lenght album „Solace Through Lies“ via NonStop Music Records.
The CD release was promoted with a run of live shows, before guitarist Luca decided to leave the band. With the addition of Tom Steiner, the vacant position could be filled in a very short time. While playing sporadically live gigs, the writing for a future release took place during the next months. Beginning of 2013, Tom left the band due personal reasons. Fortunately a new guitarist was found quickly in the person of Jon Schnider. CONTORSION is now in rehearsal and writing mode for the next album, which will hopefully see the light of the day in late 2013 / early 2014.
