There is no greater sound than the sound of music. And with that in mind, 6 musicians have come together to form a band that would echo the sound of music far and wide. Distortion culture was formed in the year 2009 as a progressive rock band by individuals who had different musical backgrounds from a guitarist who had a background in classical music to a novice drummer and bassist who had nothing in common at all except for their love for music. The band was thus formed with 5 members who’ve amalgamated their different styles and sounds into the energy-rich, power packed music that Distortion Culture is identified by. In the early 2010 Mohammed joined the family as the lead vocalist and to complete the lineup Arjun joined in on the guitars. Having played in numerous college level competitions since the band’s inception, they’ve gathered a lot of appreciation and awe wherever they go. A melodic and progressive rock taste is what they've come to be famous for. One of the crowning moments in our journey so far has been finishing first runners-up at Cobalt Skies 2009, Bangalore Medical College, the very first competition the band took part in with the guitarist and bassist receiving a special mention by the judges of the event and the two maiden compositions, Unforeseen Truth and Mahaganapathim blowing the audience away. There was no looking back from then onward with invitations to play at Palace Grounds, Strawberry Fields(NLS), The Kyra Theater and most recently Saarang(IIT, Chennai). A well blended feel of classical Indian music with the raw energy of progressive metal is what the band is all about, with influences such as Dream Theater, Mr. Big, Liquid Tension Experiment, Porcupine Tree, Tool and Indian bands such as Motherjane and Avial, they have come out with a unique sound that identifies them as fresh and original in every sense. Distortion Culture’s success so far is a mere reflection of the band's outstanding energy and originality in their music. And this is just the beginning.
