me say this before I get into the review here. Since this band has
not really established any history on them we far as press related
subjects or things of that matter I had to say little is known about
TORTURE. Well for me this is an added bonus for
it gives me the desire of wanting to know more about them (Sorry,
it’s my failure. I should have translated some basic info.
TORTURE are hailing from the South of Germany,
a city called Wuerzburg and were been around since 5 years –
Cal). Upon receiving TORTURE’s very first
release Winter I was skeptical to their
sound giving the cover elements remind me of Type O Negative’s
inner art work of October Rust. But lone behold what I was in for
as I heard the track that did me in called Suicide giving
some melodic thrusts with firm timing corresponding with ambient
beats of the rhythm division. Guitar workings on the last track
of The North echoes the doom feel as the voices of Mario
Dressler & Philip Mayer combine an on front of vocal grandeur
while Alexander Dietz pounds raw tempos while meantime Maria Krebs
fills the emotional bass construction.
the elements united TORTURE has sometime that
remains apparent. A group that strives with good recording while
not trying to be something they are not. Up front raw natural
talent is where I give TORTURE major points in.
A job well done!
