Finnish thrash metallers TORNADO ink a record deal with Rockshots/Extreme Metal Music for the new album release


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” on YouTube ➤

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 and it’s already available for pre-order at the Rockshots Shop ➤
