Death metal from Turku, Finland since 2002.

“Formed in the spring of 2002 mostly out of fun and amusement for the band members. Torture Killer’s first-ever set consisted solely of Six Feet Under covers and they derived their name from an SFU song that they had performed that night. Shortly after this show, they decided to start writing original material” – Metal Archives


Heavy stuff and highly enjoyable. Good song writing, crushing live band!
I saw them once before in Stockholm ages ago (Shitty old pics: Kafé 44 w. Facebreaker & Demonical), right after the “Sewers” release. With Juri Sallinen as the vocalist.
They were great already back then but never saw them live again. Before now, that is:) The “new” vocalist (since 2011) Pessi Haltsonen is very convincing. Awesome voice!
Been listening to way too little Death metal lately…
