Contorted reality is a song of many journeys both musically & lyrically. It kicks off as a swinging, thrashy banger with huge choruses. The whole song is a musical medley with many variables that takes us on a journey, then shifts gears into a prog style breakdown featuring a guitar solo. The drama emanates from the orchestra mixing and the vocal melodies create beauty. The crunch of the guitars and bass both contradict and compliment that beauty at the same time. The song’s climax is an epic wall of sound Minus Life is known for and a massive vocal performance with a ton of variation.
