Formed in 2003, in Rome, Italy, the extreme rock quartet The Orange Man Theory delivers a raging sound influenced by a strong passion for groovy dissonances, angular and odd rhythms, a perverse addiction to death metal and a real devotion for 70's super rock.
Once recorded their debut cd "Riding A Cannibal Horse From Here To..." with Steve Austin of Today Is The Day, they signed to the US Supernova Records. Their album soon caught the attention of the worldwide press that acclaimed the album on the most important magazines, and The Orange Man Theory toured Europe, USA and South America. They performed at SXSW 2008 in Austin, TX, and played with bands like Sick Of It All, Today Is The Day, Wolves In The Throne Room, Venomous Concept, Cripple Bastards, -(16)-, Sleepytime Gorilla Museum, Godflesh, Dark Funeral...
Their second full length album "Satan Told Me I'm Right" came out in 2009 by Subsound Records and the band left on several headling European tour. In 2010 they released a 7" split with the Greek sludgers Lucky Funeral and left on tour in Europe with the legendary -(16)-. One year after TOMT went on tour again supporting Jucifer all over Europe.
The band is currently working on its third full length album.

[…] a punked-up stoner racket which sounds somewhere between a buzz saw attack and a dinosaur tripping over
TOMT substitute a fistfuli of Jesus Lizard/Unsane psycho sludge and stir it all up with angry, circular riffs that are disorienting. It gets to the point where you really don’t know what to expect from song to song, verse to verse, riff to riff […]
Angular and dissonant yet refreshingly intriguing, throw in a smattering of garage rock swagger and hardcore heroics”
[…] Few bands can claim to sound this together and this sure of themselves on their very first full-length release […]
