Now, in 2018 and with their fourth studio album, the band is making a quantum leap: The group around singer Mark Hohlweck never before sounded as sophisticated, infectiously catchy and hymn-like. 'God Of Storms' is a welcome surprise; an album with which TORIAN do not have to hide from international greats in any way.
Producer Seeb Levermann (Orden Ogan, Rhapsody Of Fire, Brainstorm), who was brought on board already for the self-released EP ’Phantoms Of The Past’ in 2016, has done an incredible job once again. The ten tracks - which were mostly written by guitarist Carl Delius - shine and impress throughout. Rarely does one get to hear an album that is so catchy, but also shows no signs of wear even after the umpteenth spin.
"Well over half of the songs on 'God Of Storms' are already part of our live setlist," says guitarist Carl Delius. "The feedback is great and you can hardly highlight a single song because all the new numbers ignite on stage. After concerts with Sabaton, Dragonforce, Orden Ogan, Overkill, Annihilator and Vicious Rumors in recent years, we want to play live more than ever."
