In 2005, after having played together in various projects for over ten years, Johan and Crille felt the time was right to give the world a dose of brutal death metal, thus Contortion was formed . The songwriting process started immediately and pretty soon we realized that we had some good shit going on. Consequently, the hunt for bandmembers began. Andreas joined Contortion in late 2005 and with his skill and songwriting contributions the band rose to an even greater level. We rehearsed as a trio for a while after that, developing our sound and had a beer (or ten) inbetween.
