We play our own songs, in the genres Djent, Progressive Metal, Metalcore. The tracks are written and produced by Daniel. The band members share a workflow in Guitar Pro: Daniel does the main structure of the song, and I work on the bass details at home, Jan works on the drum parts, etc.
Originally, the band was called ‘A Pleasant Dystopia’, but due to practical reasons, the name was changed to ‘Contradictions’ – to make it shorter.
We used to rehearse until the May of 2013 in the basement of the Thomaskirche Erfurt - regardless we’re unreligious. Now we rehearse and spend time at our Klanggerüst gallery. Our album, which is a complete home-production, is called “Rethink the Infinate” and is currently in production. Considering the goals of the band – we’re a freetime-band, with no specific goals of doing gigs. The important thing for us is, that we enrich eachothers musical life with perfecting our songs, spending quality time together.
