INTRODUCTION A new, aggressive modern metal sound with extreme metal influences! 
GENRE Djent/death core 
BIOGRAPHY Turma was formed in October 2008. The band, conscious of the difficulties having those who wish to propose an alternative to Italian scene music,  starts to work creating a sound inspired from '80s thrash metal roots. The first album, “Tearless”, is a mix between Heavy and Thrash metal that brought the band to perform with artists like Necrodeath, Michael Angelo Batio, Arthemis. After several changes, Turma are now composed by Raffaele Berisio (voice), Lello Di Lorenzo (guitar), Fabrizio Lamanna (bass), Ciro Troisi (drums). Their sound is now changed into a modern djent/death core metal with extreme metal influences, and the new work, “Kraken”, fully reflects the new direction of the band.
