A melodic power metal album of highest quality! Outstanding production & metal hymns galore! This is German metal perfection!
"Unbowed,Unbent, Unbroken" ... this song title from the new TORIAN album 'God Of Storms' could also symbolize the band's history. Perseverance and iron will kept the German power metal band in the game since its foundation in 2002, and with a lot of passion and enthusiasm, TORIAN have achieved a remarkable status in the underground scene over the years.
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 can easily compete international greats in any way. Fans of Orden Ogan, Gamma Ray, Running Wild, Hammerfall and Dream Evil will especially enjoy the treasure that is ‘God Of Storms’.
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. The cover artwork for 'God Of Storms' was created by Claudio Bergamin (Judas Priest, Battle Beast).
