Torben Enevoldsen began playing guitar in the early ’80s, influenced by such all time greats as Tony Iommi, Richie Blackmore and Edward Van Halen. But it wasn’t until 1990 that he got serious, realizing that practice makes perfect. More influenced by Yngwie Malmsteen and other contemporary “shredders”, Torben took on the task of practicing every single day. Working on his picking and improvisational skills, he found that playing became easier and more fun in the process. Performing with various bands in Denmark gave Torben the necessary experience of working with other people as well as the essential feel of playing live. Meanwhile, experimentation at home with a 4-track tape recorder, a drum machine and a bass, gave birth to Torben’s current compositional style. Hard rock instrumentals came to him almost effortlessly and, already a big fan of this musical style, his passion grew even stronger. Torben played the first completed tracks for his very close friend Torben Lysholm, who was then working as an engineer in a studio. Lysholm was very excited by what he heard, and invited Torben to come to the studio to record a few tracks, which resulted in the release of the demo CD called “Just In Case.” In July of 1997, Torben went back into the studio to record another nine tracks, two of which included vocals. He was joined in the studio by Carsten Neumann and Christian Rajkai on bass, Kenny Lübcke on vocals and Torben Lysholm, who did the engineering, programming and backing vocals. Soon, a master tape, including the demo tracks in a new mix, was completed. Torben Enevoldsen signed an agreement with Unigreen International in Holland who released “Guitarisma” on their ROXON label in December of 1998. The album was very well received, getting great reviews in Flash ( Italy), Metal and Hard Rock Area (Germany), Aardschok (Holland), Bright Eyes Magazine (Sweden) and Rough Edge (U.S.A.) to name but a few. In May of 2000, Torben returned to the studio to record his second album. Assisted by Flemming Hansen on bass and Mickey Hurricane on drums, the final production comprises ten hard rock/heavy/progressive instrumentals exclusively. Currently holding endorsements with DEAN MARKLEY strings, DIMARZIO pickups, IBANEZ guitars and SOLDANO Custom Amplification, Enevoldsen continues to write music, perfect his guitar skills and work toward making his name a household word to fans of solid rock guitar. And now the new album “Heavy Persuasion” was released by Lion Music as well as the debut album “Guitarisma” which has also been re-released with a new bonus track “Zantac” recorded in January 2001.
