Scourge of Iron
In thrall to the evil lord A procession of the damned Sweating blood to serve the beast Desolation of their souls They slave in fire Whips of Hades... See the rest of the song lyrics

    Torture builds speed, human gristle, and institutionalization. Unforgiving ("The Strangulation Chair"), its Howitzer recoil runs molten currents of melody and rhythm.

    It's clear that the gore-obsessed band shows no signs of slowing down.

    Torture delivers in overwhelming abundance, is walls of crushing noise, a great variance between the blastbeats and intricate rhythms, and some dazzling technicality. And that is exactly what you get.

    Torture is classic Corpse. No complaints.

    Nastier, harder and more devastating than 2009's Evisceration Plague, Torture attacks with savage precision from the opening seconds of the aptly titled Demented Aggression and never lets up. [Apr 2012, p.101]
  6. 70
    The sounds on Torture are pretty much identical to what you hear on every other record by Cannibal Corpse: If it ain't broke, they aren't fixing it.
  7. This is more entirely predictably absurd bludgeoning death metal silliness from the kings of its kind.

    i just want to say this album is good. I thought that Evisceration Plague was good and Torture is better. to their seems to be a little morei just want to say this album is good. I thought that Evisceration Plague was good and Torture is better. to their seems to be a little more variety in sounds then the same chaos that you hear from most of their stuff. although the variety doesn't help that these are still kind of forgettable songs. I'm writing this review after i listened to the album about 2 weeks ago and i can't remember any of the song distinctly, except for the title track Torture. Its a good album, its just kinda forgettable. Expand
