Biography

There are at least 10 artists called TNT.

1) TNT is a heavy metal band formed in Trondheim, Norway in 1982, by vocalist and rhythm guitarist Dag Ingebrigtsen , guitarist Ronni Lé Tekrø , bassist Steinar Eikum and drummer Morten “Diesel” Dahl . They released their self-titled debut album the same year — their only album that features Norwegian lyrics — and got a hit with the single “Harley Davidson”. In August 1983 Morty Black replaced Steinar Eikum on bass, and the following year American vocalist Tony Harnell became TNT’s new frontman, making his debut on their album Knights of the New Thunder with the temporary stage name Tony Hansen. That line-up recorded one more album, Tell No Tales in 1987, before “Diesel” Dahl decided to quit one year later, after some turbulent times within the band. Tell No Tales - as co-written by Dahl - produced TNT’s biggest hit, the single “10,000 Lovers (In One)”.

Kenneth Odiin became TNT’s new drummer, but recorded only one album with the band, Intuition in 1989, before he left. His replacement was John Macaluso, who played on the albums “Realized Fantasies” and “Three Nights in Tokyo” (both released in 1992). The same year they decided to take a break, choosing to focus on various solo projects. In 1996 the compilation “Till Next Time” was released, and Harnell, Lé Tekrø and Black reformed TNT with drummer Frode Hansen. That line-up recorded two albums, Firefly in 1997 and Transistor in 1999.

In 2000 Morten “Diesel” Dahl came back to TNT, 12 years after he left. The band started working on their new album “My Religion”, which was released in 2004. Months after the album release, Morty Black decided to quit, and Sid Ringsby took his place for the following concerts.
