A new song and video from Helsinki-based thrash metal band TORNADO can be found below. “Global Pandemic” is taken from the band’s forthcoming new album “Commitment To Excellence”, which will be released by Extreme Metal Music/Rockshots Records on August 31, 2018.
The song is also available on streaming services like Spotify.
Vocalist Superstar Joey Severance comments: “The lyrics reflect the world we live in. I make a conscious effort to write my lyrics as clear and to the point as possible so I don’t have to explain them. I won’t now! You are smart, figure it out!”
With “Commitment To Excellence”, 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, sleeze 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).
Produced by Ben Varon (ex-Amoral/Oceanhoarse), and mixed/mastered and engineered by AK, Chris Paccou (FOH Engineer of Slayer),“Commitment To Excellence” is already available for pre-order at the Rockshots Shop: http://bit.ly/Tornado_PREORDER
Be sure to catch the band on their European tour in December supporting Six Feet Under!
