The Distorted Waltz / Press

“This highly energized and creative rock quartet are musical anarchists hanging their instincts for coloration on catchy hooks and driven emotion. Their music is diverse yet familiar, exploring a kaleidoscope of sound that colors sepia toned excursions into the past and day-glow forays into the future.”

Bo White - Review Magazine

“Bay City’s The Distorted Waltz, one of our favorite thumb-area bands, is hard to put a label on. You could call them alternative, you could call them rock. You could call them metal, you could call them fusion. One thing you can call them for sure, however, is kick ass.”

“A terrific act that is primed to get their second wind beyond the Michigan area.”

“This is a precocious debut from a very talented young band, who manage to weave in their influences whilst sounding like nobody but themselves. A raw talent worth watching.”

“Their originality is obvious and their confidence is daunting. They catch you with the dirty guitars and spastic rhythms, but sell you on their bluesy bass riffs and a piercing vocal. No matter what way you slice it, The Distorted Waltz is bound to become a powerhouse in the Michigan rock scene. Rating: 4/5”

“There are a few bands at the moment who are taking a 70′s sound and giving it a modern spin – Rival Sons being a great example of this, and The Distorted Waltz have a similar sound. The sound is a very 70′s influenced one with hints of Black Sabbath and Led Zeppelin, but not feeling dated at all. The album is really impressive with some great vocals and guitar. It’s a great album that deserves to sell a shitload of copies – it’s an album for fans of 70′s bands including Black Sabbath as well as more modern bands such as Rival Sons. Rating: 8 / 10”

“For a debut album that’s been years in the making, The Distorted Waltz is a refreshing blend of classic alt sound and vocals that are at just the right level. I thoroughly enjoyed the amount of variety that was presented in the album, a lot of the songs contrast against one another in a subtle way.”
