British Thrash Stalwarts Toranaga Return

Toranaga hold a special place in the hearts of metal fans far and wide. The success of Toranaga's 1988 debut album 'Bastard Ballads' led to a session on Tommy Vance's Friday Rock Show and the band opened for Manowar on their UK tour. The band's 2nd album 'God’s Gift' (1990) received even greater acclaim and led to tours with Sabbat, Venom, Saxon, Metal Church, Uriah Heep and Annihilator and a signing to Chrysalis.

Fast forward to 2013, a change in line-up saw the band reform as 'The Bastard Son of Toranaga' and release 'Righteous Retribution' - their heaviest work since Bastard Ballads, loved by fans old and new.

Now, in 2024, the band has returned with a strong new line-up and steered again by iconic vocalist Mark Duffy. He is joined by bassist Mike Todd, drummer Toby 'The Wall' Wallace, and guitarist Liam Mulpetre - musicians with fine pedigrees in the metal scene.

Mark Duffy (Vocals) said

“I’m proud to be bringing the legacy of Toranaga back in 2024 with a brand new line up… I co-wrote some great songs over 35 years ago and can’t wait for old fans of the band and a new generation to hear them played live once again”
