There are indeed some good bands coming from Switzerland, and Contorsion is one of those, supporting with their Old School Thrash Metal such bands like Cataract, One Man Army & the Undead Quartet and some more live on stage. Their debut album „Solace through Lies“ promises to get them soon on international stages, too. As the band puts it, their lyrics deal with the human weakness to close their eyes to reality, to lie to themselves and to put the blame on others, in order to silence their bad conscience and to gain solace. This is a good description of their lyrical topics, straight from the band-info. Sure, Contorsion have all Thrash ingredients - hard and aggressive songs with a good rhythm for slam dancing, plus rough and dirty vocals. A real good start that has us looking forward to the sequel.
