Stortregn is a black/death metal band formed in Switzerland in 2005.
After recording their first demo in 2007, they recorded Devoured By Oblivion (2008), their first EP, which garnered a lot of attention and positive reviews.
In autumn 2010, having toured Cuba, Stortregn recorded their first album, Uncreation, which was released in June 2011 under Great Dane Records.
The release of the second album, Evocation Of Light (Great Dane Records (FR), Apocalyptic Art (DE)), in September 2013 was followed by an Eastern European tour and a French tour in 2014.
In 2015, they played at the Wacken Open Air, representing Switzerland for the Waken Metal Battle. The final touches to the third full-length album, Singularity, were made by the end of the year and was released by Non Serviam Records in May 2016.
While they started by taking influence of the Nordic Black Metal scene, they are expanding their vision and sound into a more contemporary era. Greatly appreciated for their music, even more so for their live shows, consisting of a mix of blood, charging riffs and blast beats, delivered with a relentless energy, Stortregn have become inevitable in the world of Swiss black/death metal, spreading their infectious music wherever they go (Cuba, Eastern Europe, France, Germany).
The current line-up consists of Romain Negro on vocals, Johan Smith and Duran Bathija on guitars, Manuel Barrios on the bass guitar and Samuel Jakubec on the drums.
