Melodic Thrash/Death metal, hailing from Limassol, Cyprus.
TørmenT are a melodic thrash/death metal band from the island of Cyprus.
Having been formed in 2007 by friends and founding members (Neophytos Agrotis, Christos Kassapis and Ricardo Constantinou), TørmenT started off as a thrash/death metal cover band, covering the likes of Lamb of god, Sepultura, Carcass, Rotting christ and Kataklysm. The band gained some experience over the next three years through multiple small live shows, but became inactive between 2010-2012 due to compulsory military obligations. In mid 2012, upon completion of this obligation Stelios Ioakim joined as the bands vocalist to this day, as did bassist Christos Loizides who also played with them prior to 2010. It was at this time the band started writing their own music, though soon after the members were separated once again, due to university obligations in the UK and Denmark. This meant the band could only be active for small durations over the holidays. Even so, TørmenT started gaining respect in the local metal scene for their different, melodic style and for there being no covers in the young band's setlists. This led to some successful shows in some of the scenes' important bars and festivals. Recently TørmenT opened for the Greek metallers W.E.B, as well as alongside some of the island's finest metal bands. The band have also recorded and recently released their first EP, entitled 'Ignominious', featuring the songs: 'Mother' and 'Ignominious'.
The bands' influences include a very wide range of the metal spectrum, from the basics to technical death metal.
