Good day everyone,
This is Stone of Contortion, and I just watned to let you all know that we appreciate
all your support!!! We currently have 4 shows booked for Oct. (Palm Springs, San
Diego, Reno, and Santa Rosa). We also have a couple of tentative dates in Nov.
2013 has been really good for us, and we are so happy that you have all helped make
this happen. After our Annual Show in Nov. on the 15th, we will be taking a break
to finish writing the new album, and then hitting the studio! So stay tuned for
the new CD "False Flag Paradigm"!!!! We hope to be releasing it in Feb.
or March of 2014.
Thank you all again, and let's go out with a bang!!! Hope to see you all at the
shows!!! Keep it metal!!!
"The group combines a lot of sounds from many different metal and hardcore sub-genres,
making it difficult to define them... but double bass and the vocalist’s harsh
Anselmo-like singing..." Megan Kennedy, Slug Magazine
"Don’t try listening to these
guys on your stupid little iPhone… it’s likely to blow up in your face
and catch your hair on fire. Break out the woofers and the tweeters and experience
the dizzying riffs keeping incredulous time with the humanly impossible tight rhythm
section." Lisa Morgan, Coachella Vally Weekly
"Sunny Southern California’s
thrash metal stalewarts have been thrashing out groove-driven and body bruising
thrash metal since 2000, and “Live Grenade” is their latest weapon of
aural mass destruction. Musically, they’ve combined Pantera-esque musical
characteristics with the hellish thrash tactics of the Bay Area scene such as Skinlab,
Testament, Exodus and others.
Vocally, Contortion has got a very gruff and rough style of singing, not wimpy, but
definitely pissed off and something that will command your attention. The only thing,
which disappoints about this EP is that it short with just four tracks barely clocking
in at 14 minutes. I know this is an ep, but these guys simply rock the walls around,
fuck ya. Guys, please release a full length album as it will satisfy my ungodly
thrash metal cravings. Great stuff for fans of thrash and very pissed off heavy
metal." Sarjoo, Explicitly Intense
