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 my musical projects this must be the most misunderstood one. This is actually one of the reasons I am terminating it. I refuse to let my music become a vehicle of politics. I 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 I was 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 I salute all of you who supported Toroidh over the years – labels, fans, promotors, radiostations and zines.
Also – instead of letting the music be forgotten in your recordcollections the essential body of work (with added materials) has been REMASTERED and made public here:
If you choose to purchase the release you will get a total of 54 TRACKS for the price of an average album.

Celebrate with me
I am celebrating my birthday by adding “Pay if you want” option to a lot of my albums over the weekend and also lowering the price for my 9+ hour long ambient/research monolith “Sleep Therapy”.
A new release – Final preparations – is now online. All compositions were composed and partly improvised as part of the process of rehearsing for the Nordvargr live experience. The release is free to download (with the option of donating something if you like it). I am currently preparing a limited physical release (a boxed USB with some personal items) – get in touch to reserve a copy.
A big thank you to all who came to witness the Tower Transmission IV Festival in Dresden. I am currently putting together a new digital release that will be consisting of my rehearsals and preparations for the piece I performed (possibly a VERY limited physical edition also).
More info about this shortly!
