Pontus Torstensson, the drummer of URAN GBG and The Exorcist GBG, has a reputation of being a human machine/metronome of high-energy, and a hard-hitting drummer.
The bands above requires nothing less than that. Add ambient and psychedelia and you’ve got Tentakel.
The one-man band Tentakel has been mesmerizing live audiences for over a decade with yaw dropping exercises of timing and synchronicity. The unique style of Tentakel’s live shows includes, arpeggiated synthesizers triggered by the man himself during his ferocious drumming, strobe lights synced to the beat, and in the middle of it all: the sweat drenched wild-eyed drummer himself.
The first single will be out very soon and the album, entitled ”Forest Flanger” comes out this fall.
