Biography of Band
|Tempest took it's name in Lake Center, Minnesota in the fall of 1993. The bands sound was and is influenced by the likes
of early Metallica, Slayer, Megadeth, Sepultura, Black Sabbath and the Dead Kennedys to name but a few.
The original two founding members of the band were guitarists Neil Wiger and Mike Sackman. These two aforementioned
guitarists met at Fargo South high school (circa October 1990). They began jamming out tunes such as Seek & Destroy,
Wicked World and countless other rock-metal wonders immediatley.
In June of 1998 Mike Sackman was killed in a work related accident. Co-founder Neil Wiger took it upon himself to
finalize a memorial release for Mike Sackman and finished the "Crabman" EP by himself in the fall of 2004.
Neil is currently drumming and doing various session work with his long time cohort Darren Johnson (friend and Recaster
bassist) in a new project called Rigel 7.
