Tormenta was spawned in December 2017 by John, Phoenix and Donna. They had created a tribute band to latin metal Giants ILL NINO, they went on to writing their own music and Tormenta was born! Robin and Dec joined the band in Feb 2018 and completed the line up.
The name Tormenta is Spanish for ‘Storm’ and a tip of the hat to the Ill Nino influence.
We are best described as melodic, electronic metalcore, with a nu metal twist. Our music combines crushing riffs, breakdowns, samples and duel vocals. We like to think we have a bit of something for everyone.
Our debut album ‘Chapter 1, The Storm is Coming’ and video for debut single ‘Crimson’ was all self recorded and produced on zero budget. Within 8 months we accrued 150,000 Spotify streams and successfully crowdfunded for our full length album ‘Chapter 2- The Storm is Here’ due for release March 2019.
In October 2018,after an extensive search for a second guitarist, the decision was made and Phoenix moved to the 8 string We welcomed our 6th member Joe as new Harsh vocalist.
On New Years Day, Tormenta won 6 Radio Roach Awards- Best Metal EP, Best Metal Single, Best debut, Best New Artist, Best Metal Band and Best band 2018! In a recent review they have been said to be ‘Filling the Gap left by Linkin Park’ and been ranked number 5 hottest band in ‘Artists charts’ above Metallica, Ozzy, Rammstein, Sabbath and many more!
