Biography

Bat-Yam, Israel (1996 – present)

There are at least two bands called Distorted, in chronological order:

1) A / band from Bat-Yam, Israel.

The band formed in 1996 and released two demos until 2002 when they began concentrating more seriously on playing live. In 2003 and 2004 the band began to write the music for their debut album Memorial which was recorded in 2005 in Underground Studio in Sweden. The album was released on March 13th 2006 in Israel and May 2nd 2006 in the rest of Europe.

In 2007, Distorted took part in the prestigious Metal Female Voice Festival, toured with Aborted and secured a deal with UK based record label Candlelight.

Their second album, Voices From Within, was released in April of 2008, featuring guest vocals by Thomas Vikstrom (from Therion), Sven De Caluwe (from Aborted) and Lisa Johansson (from Draconian). Guitarist Henrik “Heinz” Jacobsen from Koldborn also made an appearance on the album.

The band cite their influences as Opeth, Nevermore, Dark Tranquility and The Gathering, though there is a heavy Middle-Eastern influence to their sound, similar to countrymates Orphaned Land.

Band members:
Raffel Mor – vocals, Guitars
Ben Zohar – Guitars
Guy Shalom – Bass
Amir Segev – drums

Former members:
Miri Milman - vocals
Michal Akrabi - vocals

2) A Belgian metal band. The sound of the band is a melting pot of the musical preferences and roots of its members ; from Bay Area trash (Exodus, Testament and Machine Head), to heavy metal (Motorhead) and hardcore (Pro Pain and Hatebreed), with sometimes a little death metal (Entombed). Anything goes, as long as it sounds well and heavy.

    Song "In your light" rocks as hell! [2] This song incorporates everything the band's about, in my opinion. There's the oriental influences evident in both the music and Miri's singing, there's the gothic sound, the doom and the progressive elements, and also the melodeath. This song's got everything! That said, this band is growing on me, badly! Never has a female vocalist amazed me so as has Miri - more so because I usually can't stand the typical gothic metal singers. Sadly she's no longer in the band.

    Скачал из-за сисек Мири и оказалось не кошерно совершенно для меня, хотя голос отличный у нее :( Ее новый проект Систем Дивайд мне больше по нраву, хотя тоже не фонтан.

    Is it Miri or Michal in "Voices from Within" ?

    I started listening to Voices from Within with a strong assumption that it was going to be fucking terrible. It's actually not at all bad. Teaches me to judge!
