Review by UMUR
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
3 stars "Contradiction" is the debut full-length studio album by US experimental rock/ metal act Dysrhythmia. The album is a self-released affair. I was introduced to the band through their 2006 album "Barriers and Passages" which is a very intriguing release and after listening to that one I decided to check out the rest of Dysrhythmia´s discography, starting with this their debut album "Contradiction".

The music on "Contradiction" is intrumental experimental rock with a slight metal edge. The music features lots of dissonant notes, tempo and time signature changes. The tracks are everchanging and full of different riffs and sections. This is no easy listening experience, but on the other hand it´s not extremely difficult music, so I´m sure Dysrhythmia won´t lose everyone on their way. But don´t look for easily recognisable choruses or hooks or you´ll be dissapointed. The slight Voivod influence that are present on later albums by the band are only hinted at here on "Contradiction". All tracks are of high quality but my favorite is probably "Rotary". Great song that one.

Dysrhythmia is a three-piece power trio and the sound they produce is very stripped down as a consequence of having only guitar, bass and drums in their music. All three musicians are highly skilled intrumentalists though and they are fully able to write and play captivating music with only those three basic instruments.

The production could have been better, but it´s not a major issue.

I wasn´t expecting much from "Contradiction" knowing that it is a self-released album, but I´ve been pleasantly surprised and all in all I find the album very enjoyable. The music is still a bit imature and the production could as mentioned have been better but "Contradiction" is definitely a promising debut album and a 3 - 3.5 star rating is warranted.
