TorneD is a power metal band founded in Kirkkonummi somewhere around 2004. First few years were pretty much just playing covers and fooling around, trying to find the right people to play with. The band has since revolved around Tuomas, Aki and Heikki. Rest of the guys just came and went as time passed. We played a few gigs during those early years, with some of our own stuff and a few covers. It was after 2005, after our last gig and our last misfortunate line-up change, that we somehow gave up and fell into oblivion. Nothing really happened after that for a few years. Band members still came and went, but none really stuck.
It wasn’t until spring of 2009 and the arrival of Markku Kuikka (Status Minor, Thaurorod), that took things to another direction. We had made a few new songs and were in the process of recording a demo to find a singer, when Kuikka noticed our songs on a web page. It didn’t take long for him to do the vocal lines for our songs, and, respectively, it didn’t take long for us to go ahead to studio to finally record a demo. The whole project turned out to be quite a long road to travel…
And since it seemed to take a bit longer than we expected, we made a few more new songs. Now, along with a new bass player, fresh demo, new songs to record and play live, we finally found ourselves in the position we left a few years back.
Next step is to turn up the heat and start playing live again and hopefully start recording soon!
