Backdrop data:

"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 Sideline and the Russian Rockcity. In addition, Distorted Reality was ranked No. 4 in the category "Best Newcomer 2002" in the 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 Noyceâ„¢.

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, and Null Device.

Besides smaller stage appearances Distorted Reality performed live at the 12th Wave Gotik Treffen in Leipzig (Germany) and supported a Psyche concert in Tampa (Florida, USA). As a part of the "Electronic Pleasures" Festival Tour in November 2004 Distorted Reality played in Berlin, Hanover and Augsburg (Germany). Distorted Reality signed an agreement with booking agency RGKP to increase the stage presence of the band.

Martha and Christian recently 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".

Year 2005 sees a big change for Distorted Reality: With the completion of "Daydreams and Nightmares," Martha has moved to Berlin permanently in order to give her full attention to the band and the music."
