Distorted belongs to the Doom/Death part of the metal scene.
Combination between Dark Tranquillity and Lacuna Coil, DISTORTED is the definitive new act from Israël.
All members participate in the making of the music, which is influenced from band like Nevermore, Dark Tranquillity, Opeth, Dominion (uk), Amaran, Draconian etc. DISTORTED uses a lot of melodic lines and clean melodic vocals (Miri, the amazing and good-looking female singer) alongside with heavy riffs and growled voice (Raff). DISTORTED makes music that combines both worlds of "the beauty and the beast".
DISTORTED has worked under several names with different line-up's from 1996.
In October 1998 we recorded our first demo with three songs and in January 2000 two more songs.
In August 2002 the band released two more songs over the net including an acoustic track.
Following these recordings we wanted to polish our live shows and Distorted went on to perform live in various cities in Israel including a show in a festival Headlined by Edguy, and at the Metalist Festivals in 2004/05 which were headlined by Behemoth, Destruction and Megadeth.
We spent a lot of our time in 2003/4 writing the lyrics and music for our first full length album 'Memorial' which was recorded in February 2005 at Underground Studio in Sweden under the hand of Pelle Seather.
