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…

The first gig in a long time and it happened to be a really fantastic one! Got to see Facebreaker again along with two other greats: Demonical and Torture Killer. The bands started out their European tour at Kafé 44 and the next stop were Eldfesten in Köping. That´s not so far and the plan was that I tag along with the bands right after the gig. However I didn´t want to stay in a hotel after the festival and I couldn´t find anybody driving to Stockholm at 2AM, so I had to pass. Hope they have a great tour.
Adrian & the Luciferian Society with staff did a great job and made a perfect evening! A very special thanks to Björn who works at the venue. He´s an amazing guy who always looks after me:)
Need more Deathmetal…soon.
