Before he was invited to join Norwegian band Mayhem on “De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas” – an album widely regarded as one of the most crucial black metal albums of all time – extreme vocalist Attila Csihar haunted the Hungarian metal underground with his band Tormentor. Tormentor recorded their first album, “Anno Domini”, in 1988, but were unable to release it until the end of communism. Since then the album has gained a cult following.

In 2018 the band reunited in the original line-up to play a selected row of shows, one of them being at the Danish festival Metal Magic in 2019 where their show was hailed as a peak for the festival and a showcase in raw and brutal black metal with a unique vocalist in front. Csihar has become known as a singer not only pushing his own vocal performance to extremes but also pushing the boundaries of metal by experimenting with pagan rituals, noise, free jazz and much more. At ALICE he performed in 2020 with the highly experimental duo Hiedelem but he is also known for his collaboration with the drone metal masters of Sunn O))). With Tormentor he is ready to show the Copenhagen audience that he still masters the bleak art of old school black metal with their first Danish club show.

Cult of Fire have set the new standard for the genre. No band in today’s extreme metal scene presents more epic, exhilarating and sensual live show, stimulating the entire nervous system. The raw electrifying power of black metal combines with opaque atmosphere of ritualistic elements. The impressive song structures burst into epic proportions and are filled to the brim with both burning fury and majestic melody lines, that creep out with unbridled vehemence. Founded in 2010, Cult of Fire has played very few regular tours. In 2020 they were supposed to play their first ever Copenhagen club show at ALICE. Sadly, a pandemic got in the way. But we’re thrilled to say that the fire will burn at ALICE in early 2022, when Cult of Fire joins Tormentor for a very exclusive evening.
