American/Finnish sensations Tornado have returned with their third release, aptly titled “Commitment To Excellence”, 11 songs of highly catchy and in-your-face Thrash Metal!
Formed in 2010 in Amsterdam, Netherlands, Tornado quickly released their Peter Tagtgren (Hypocrisy/Pain) produced debut album “Amsterdamn, Hellsinki”. 2016 saw the release of the sophomore album “Black President” as well as the video for the anti-bullying song “David and Goliath” which caught the attention of several anti-bullying agencies, one of which used singer Superstar Joey Severance in a country wide advertising campaign.
With “Commitment To Excellent”, Tornado continue to do what they do best: writing songs that you can actually remember, with their own original recipe consisting in a blend of thrash, sleazy and glam!
This time around, the band also brought along some friends to help out in certain places: Nile’s Karl Sanders, Immolation’s Ross Dolan and Pro-Pain’s Adam Phillips, as well as Glen Drover (former Megadeth member).
You can taste some new stuff by checking out the first single and video “Global Pandemic”.
Produced by Ben Varon (ex-Amoral/Oceanhoarse), mixed/mastered and engineered by AK, Chris Paccou (FOH Engineer of Slayer) “Commitment to Excellence” is set to be released via Extreme Metal Music / Rockshots Records on August 31, 2018.
Be sure to catch the band on their European tour in December supporting Six Feet Under!
