Founded in 2002 and playing in constant line-up since 10 years now, TORIAN from Paderborn/Germany play Power Metal with conviction, characterized by the American as well as the European sound. Combined with their typical raging Thrash-Attacks, TORIAN developed their own distinctive handwriting over the last years and fine-tuned it from album to album: Intoxicated Power Metal-Songs with passion - sometimes melodic, sometimes brutal - and always in search of the big chorus!
Already the first album "Dreams under Ice" (2005, Underground Symphony) brought TORIAN remarkable success in the underground-scene, followed by their second longplayer "Thunder Times" (2009, Sound Guerilla), that also caused fantastic reactions scenewide. In 2012 the band released their current Full Length-Album "Dawn" (Sound Guerilla), based on a lyrical concept and rewarded by the trade press (8,5/10 Points in RockHard/Germany).
Now the time was right for new recordings! Furthermore TORIAN wanted to present the scene their new songs. So the band recorded the 4-Track-EP "Phantoms of the Past" by theirselves in summer 2015. To push their sound production-wise to a higher level, the recordings were mixed by Seeb Levermann (Orden Ogan) in his Greenman Studios. The result reflects exactly the current status of TORIAN: Power Metal at its best - embedded in a tight sound pattern!
Over the last years TORIAN played innumerous Live-Shows all over Europe (together with Dragonforce, Vicious Rumors, Sabaton, Helstar, Overkill, Annihilator a.m.m.) and achieved and established a great reputation for being a energetic and intoxicating Live-Act! In the end the stage is all that matters! And this is exactly the reason you better don't miss the impassionate Power Metal-Show of TORIAN!
Currently TORIAN works again with Seeb on the fourth album "God of Storms" (Planned release: 2018)
TORIAN is ready for the next round!
