Biography

There are a number of artists with the name Tormenta:

1) Tormenta started with Dhai (drums) Lai (guitar) wanting to form a band playing the music of the
greats such as, Metallica, Megadeth, Slayer, Sepultura, etc. Practicing with other local metal bands
like Locura and Serenity Dies, the search for lead guitarist, bass and vocals was on. Various musicians jammed with them but never clicked with the duo. Mabi (guitar) joined the band through the help of Chippe’ (Serenity Dies), sharing the same dream as Lai n Dhai, Tormenta grew strong. All the while Mu-k (Locura drummer) did vocals for a few practice sessions just for the fun it. At the time A.D (Phormentera) was filling in for vocals and only the position of bass was open. Bringing in the heavily Iron maiden influenced Riley (Ex-Delirium XIII Bassist) into a heavier, faster music, Tormenta started to practice for their first debut show(Anti-drug campaign show June 29th, 2006) with Mu-k as guests to play covers of Sepultura. On stage when Mu-k went up, it felt right and the rest of the band felt that this was the beginning of TORMENTA.

Concentrating mostly on covers from many different bands, Tormenta made it a point to renew their
repertoire for each show. The idea of originals was always there but to make the connections with
each member stronger these thoughts were put to a halt through the first year. The views of genre
in music Tormenta was to make was never a question although each band members thoughts were
different. Dhai bringing in Slayer influenced drum works, Lai and Mabi creating notorious riff works and solos of that of Metallica, Megadeth and Lamb of god. Riley bringing in the grinding bass lines influenced by Iron Maiden and to top it up, Mu-k created his Sepultura sound to front the band Tormenta’s music would be described as NEW AGE THRASH METAL. But from the start of 2008, due to the lack of practice room and other reasons Tormenta had to take a break and this delayed the album work.


Tormenta United on 2009,but this time with a lineup change. Heavily influenced from the great thrash pioneers J355y accepted his oath to fullfill on the bass as Riley departed. With a lot of hard work and overcoming lot of obstacles during the course, Tormenta released there first album “Tormented Souls” on April 30, 2010.
