Origin - Germany
Style - Death Metal

" German band caught between doom metal, speed metal and the early strains of death metal that despite its silly name made two quality albums before disappearing in tragedy "

" On their debut 'Beyond The Veil'....Torchure made an album that bordered Death Metal with Doom Metal....palm-muted riffs, sudden stops and starts, a melding of dynamic intensity to balance melodic playing with guttural blasts of rhythm riffing -- with distinctive central melodies that kept the tracks memorable. Songs often begin with a keyboard or lead-picked melodic foreshadowing, and then dive into slamming violent decomposition riffs that would be equally at home in Malevolent Creation or Asphyx "

" Heavy, brutal, Death Metal. Check out "The Veil of Sanity" and "Mortal at Last." Both are hauntingly ominous. The rest of the tracks are more Death, yet all are memorable and the vocals are bestial and raw, but also show a range of emotion similar to Barney (Napalm Death) combined with Nick Holmes (Paradise Lost). I can find no real flaws with the production or in the songs.

This is a must for everyone into the old way...

The Essence Of Death !.......Get It!
