TORMENTED
TORMENTED
Graveyard Lust
(War Anthem Records)
24:57min

TORMENTED is out to commence carnage, the quartet consisting of Robberth Karlsson, Jocke Ölund, Claes Holmberg and Andreas 'Dread' Axelson, where the first and last mentioned might be the most known in this line-up, both with a long and glorious path inside Metal since the late 80s / early 90s, no bands mentioned no bands forgotten, besides INFESTDEAD where Dread handled the vocals, a band reminding a bit of TORMENTED in their way of attacking things. INFESTDEAD were a Death / Grind DEICIDE homage band, straight to the point and brutal... TORMENTED pays homage to the early days of Swedish Death Metal, straight to the point with a punkish 'fuck you all' attitude and the dark eerie riffing, cold and gripping melodies, pounding rhythm patterns, a dark and rumbling bass and the devious vocals from Dread, all trademarks from when Swedish Death Metal ruled the world. A release as "Graveyard Lust" can never be deemed as original music, but damn the music on here oozes with intensity, energy and a pure love for Death Metal, and of course the ability of writing and delivering the music straight on. These 25 minutes of Metal are hardpumped and brutal, a trip to another age of our beloved genre, an age where you had to deliver to get through the needle eye, an age where TORMENTED might not have hit that eye, but would have ended up among all the peripheral bands that made and recorded good music, but never was acknowledged for their talent. Those bands that have their old albums released nowadays, blasting away the competition from the newer bands ruling the sphere of glory at this point. TORMENTED is one of those bands showing that it isn't about appearance or Facebook likes, but about blasting Death Metal with a pure soul. Now go like them on their Facebook page and find more carnage at: www.tormented.nu, www.myspace.com/fuckingtormented and www.war-anthem.de
