Toroidh

Real Name:
Henrik N. Björkk
Profile:
Toroidh is Henrik Nordvargr Björkk's martial industrial side project.
Ceased to exist in date 23 January 2015 with this public announcement divulged by Henrik himself:
"After almost 14 years of existence it is time to retire Toroidh.
It has been a rough ride, but also a great one. Of all the musical projects I/we have been involved with, this must be the most misunderstood one. This is actually one of the reasons we are terminating it. We refuse to let the music become a vehicle of politics. We thought that naming the debutalbum “Those who do not remember the past are condemned to repeat it” and calling the tracks “Never again I-IX” would be an indicator that the music was not glorifying any specific standpoint, but we were wrong.
Let it be known once and for all that the music of Toroidh dealt mostly (but not exclusively) with the turmoil of Europe during the world wars, but it was intended as a soundtrack to the stupidity, wars and chaos – not a political standpoint.

With that said – we salute all of you who supported Toroidh over the years – labels, fans, promotors, radiostations and zines."

Henrik Nordvargr Bjorkk´s recommendable alter ego under which he makes a very interesting form of modern classical music. Old opera and symphony recordings get treated into often slightly distorted ambient hymns which mostly manage to enhance the beauty of the original pieces.
