Tortur (means psychic torture in Norwegian).
Started as a duo in 1984 of Lars Nicolaysen and Tore Stemland. Since
then they have worked on their live metal percussion and noise tape
Few concerts and releases but a hardcore following has pushed them forward.
The line-up was expanded with Ronny Wærnes in the spring 2006.
Since then there have been several gigs, including NØDUTGANG
2006 festival and support for vocal impro artist number one in Norway;
With Wærnes included in the band they have dropped the playback
and now everything is played live. Their concert at NØDUTGANG
2006 is also their latest album. "Sounded like machines while they
are breaking up slowly in a beautiful way" was a persons spontaneously
comment after the gig.
Well, it is
beautiful music for the open minded, the rest is up to you to find out.
