Face 30: Distorted Reality - 'I Knew It Was Wrong' (USA/Germany)
Each day we present you two bands that have participated in the "Face The Beat Vol. 1" download compilation as released by Side-Line and which you can get for free right here.

Distorted Reality was formed by Martha Arce from Miami, USA and Christian Kobusch from Berlin, Germany. Martha is the former lead singer of Deep Red, the American Electro-Goth formation. While on tour in Germany with Deep Red as the support for Project Pitchfork, a chance meeting would occur.

After a concert in Herford, Germany, Martha and Christian met and discussed their ideas. Via e-mail they kept in touch and formed Distorted Reality in 1997. Because of the distance the production took a long time.

Since their formation Distorted Reality have appeared on numerous CD compilations and radio shows mainly across North America and Europe. An array of European and American music magazines have featured Distorted Reality, hailing their talents. Among these are the German magazines Zillo, Sonic Seducer and Orkus the Belgium/American Side-Line and the Russian Rockcity. In addition, Distorted Reality was ranked No. 4 in the category "Best Newcomer 2002" in the Grenzwellen.de online poll.

Distorted Reality's debut album "The Fine Line Between Love and Hate" was produced together with Bruno Kramm (Das Ich) and released on May 17, 2002 on Accession Records containing remixes by Propaganda, Sabotage qcqc and Noyce™. On May 13, 2003 "The fine Line..." was re-released on the American record label Nilaihah Records. The North American version contains additional remixes by Assemblage 23, Forma Tadre, cut.rate.box and Null Device.

Martha and Christian completed their second album "Daydreams and Nightmares" together with Andreas Meyer (Forma Tadre, Newt). Artists like Bruno Kramm (Das Ich), Daniel Myer (Haujobb), In Strict Confidence, Dust of Basement and Chris L. (Agonoize) contributed remixes to this album. One highlight is a cover version of Billy Idol's "Rebel Yell". Around the same time a Distorted Reality song was featured in the German "Pimp my Ride" show (Pro 7, "Bizz") and a Distorted Reality club remix for Sero.Overdose's "In your eyes" was released on the re-release of "Serotonin" on Alfa Matrix records (get it here).

"Daydreams and Nightmares" was released on Nilaihah Records again for North America. However, the band has signed with a new label for Europe. This time the European release will be with Scanner Records of Dark Dimensions.

Distorted Reality took some time off for among other things the birth of Martha's son, but are working on new material for the next album which will include "I Knew it Was Wrong" which is released on Side-Line Magazine's compilation "Face the Beat Vol. 1" in July 2011.

Members: Martha Arce (vocals and lyrics), Christian Kobusch (music)
