TORMENTOR REUNITES AT BEYOND THE GATES
Sometimes you just have to pinch your self. The band you’d thought you never would be able to see live has just decided to return from the dead. And even better – they’re playing Beyond the Gates next year!
Formed in Budapest in 1986, Tormentor is truly one of the most unique acts ever to emerge from the extreme metal scene. Their brilliant blend of harsh riffs, the guttural voice of Attila Csihar and the sometimes refined passages really made them stand out to the ones discovering them.
The iconic debut album, “Anno Domini” together with the demo “Seventh Day of Doom” is widely regarded as one of the most influential releases in black metal. The debut was recorded in 1988, but due to the communist regime, it took years to formally release it.
“Anno Domini” made a huge impact on the 2nd wave of black metal bands surfacing at the end of the 80s, the Norwegian scene in particular.
After Tormentor’s early demise in 1991 the bands charismatic singer, Attila, joined Mayhem in time to record the black metal milestone, “De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas”.
Over time, the legend has grown and their cult status continued to gain momentum. Now they’re back to obliterate. Tormentor’s musical legacy can firmly be placed amongst other pioneering acts such as Bathory, Sarcofago and Celtic Frost.
The sometimes theatrical songs lends themselves perfectly to the live stage and knowing the capabilities of this highly skilled bunch of musicians, this show will be something very, very special.

Attila Csihar – vocals
