Torment began as a cover band in May 2002. The first lineup consisted of Fabrizio Fontana (guitar) and Fede (guitar), Umberto (vocals), Tore (bass) and Christian Masiero (drums). Over the first year the band played several shows in Northern Italy where they played their cover versions of songs from Slayer, Destruction, Possessed and many other bands. After the band’s first year things became turbulent. The band began to work on their own songs (2003), Tore left the band and was replaced by Ea (2004), then Umberto left with Erman taking over his place (2005). In 2007, after many problems that had to be overcome, the band recorded their first album “Suffocated Dreams” which was then released in 2008. The next EP “Scars Remain” was recorded in 2009 – Luca and Erma left the band in that year – and released in 2010. Since then the band has shared the stage with bands like Tankard, Onslaught, Exumer, Raw Power and Bulldozer.
