THUNDEROR is an 80’s-infused heavy metal band formed in 2020. Featuring a lead-singing drummer and an all-star lineup, the Canadian power trio deliver hook-driven stadium caliber songs with an untamed spirit.
Since 2019, drummer JJ Tartaglia had felt a calling, one which grew stronger each day. Being a member of several prominent metal bands over the last decade (most notably Skull Fist) and having essentially served as a disciple of heavy metal for many years, the time had come to take his quest even further. A new course was being charted for his musical mission. He would share a vision, a feeling… a message he could deliver only with his own voice.
Fueled by his passion for adventure, JJ began to work on drum arrangements and piano pieces that would become the skeletons of the Thunderor songs.
In 2020, with the addition of long-time band mate Jonny Nesta on guitars, combined with JJ also composing on keys and vocals, songwriting began in full force and quickly yielded an album’s worth of material. Close friend and monster player Oscar Rangel (ex-Annihilator) was then called upon to do bass and the line-up was complete. Thunderous drums, lightning hot guitar licks, dreamy synths and piercing vocals would form the musical storm that is THUNDEROR.
The band would spend the next year self-recording the album, priding themselves on recording the natural way, producing an energetic record with a strong human connection. The debut album FIRE IT UP is set for a Feb 2022 release backed by a Europe/UK tour in March.
If you’ve ever felt a longing for escape, a thirst for adventure, wrapped in romance and danger, well what are you waiting for? Get after it and let THUNDEROR be your soundtrack!
