Tormentor (Hun)

Yesterday was Record Store Day and what it brought me then? Long awaited Tormentor demos pressed into vinyl. Musically maniacs know what it has to offer: Bathory influenced Black Speed Metal from 1987 and 1988. The extra booklets with rare killer photos and stories  plus overall quality of the release leaves me speechless. Top notch job!
On the picture: Tormentor "Anno Domini" LP + poster + flyer (1996), "Anno domini" LP + poster (2013), "The 7th Day of Doom" LP + poster (2013), letter from Vamosi Tamas (mid 90`s), tape trade Tormentor recordings (2 demos + 2 live recordings :"Live 1.4.1987 Budapest" and "Budapest 666 Festival 7.12.1986"). It could be that there is mistake with the dates because the handwriting of the guy who taped me those 18 years ago is just killing me!!!!)
