Death Metal machine Severe Torture comes crushing down on this godforsaken planet to slaughter everything that stands in its way! And they come bearing great news!
After 12 years of silence, the band return with not only a brand new EP “Fisting the Sockets”, but also a brutal new chapter in the form of their sixth full length. New music will be released upon the masses soon, more brutal, eclectic and darker than ever!
Severe Torture comments:
“We are stoked to partner up once more with Season of mist to release our new music. We are very proud of the new material and we feel the world really needs some good quality death metal to finally bring a spark of joy in this grim period in history.”
These words define the unique sound of the extreme metal that Severe Torture is known for since 1997. Severe Torture has been a constant force over the last 25 years, in presence as well as in their line-up. Their debut album “Feastiing On Blood” was hailed as an instant classic in the early beginnings of the new wave of brutal death metal in 2001.
Ever since the release of their debut the band has toured extensively. Playing shows in North and South America, Mexico and their home continent Europe in support of the 5 albums they have released over the last 25 years.
Since Severe Torture is about quality not quantity, they have been laying low since their latest album “Slaughtered”, released in 2010. While still playing shows for the love of the genre, the band was in search of the brutality and energy needed for the material of a new Severe Torture album. This soul-searching led to the amical split with original drummer Seth in 2018, who was replaced 2018 by Damien Kerpentier. With renewed energy and focus the band started with a clean slate by writing new material, arguably their best material to this day.
“Fisting the Sockets” will be the first feat of Severe Torture in 12 years. The band has re-signed their deal with Season of Mist and if it wasn’t for a certain pandemic this upcoming EP “Fisting the Sockets” was probably released much earlier.
Severe Torture is currently recording their full-length album, to be released early 2023 through Season of Mist Records.
