Torture - Enter The Chamber - demo tape 1986

Interesting demo that I can't find much of anything about online except that the band hailed from El Paso TX.

Musically I would compare Torture to Venom, however the riffing on this tape reminds me of the Black Metal band Horna which is odd considering this demo pre-dates Horna by 7 years The music on this demo is by no means Black Metal, but nice thick mid tempo power metal with vocals that sound like growling from a deep dark cave.

If anyone has any information about this band please leave the details in the comment section...Dave G.

Hey Dave, I thought u had given up doing this blog. so its been a while. u may remember me as the only one who ever commented on the posts of 90s stuff like Seam, Crain, etc.

Anywho, u may already know, but i'm sure this would have to be the same band who did an LP called Storm Alert around 1990. Also did a 12" a few years before that. Really cool band if thats who it is - the LP was nice and had a cool weird desert painting on the cover that fit their Texas thrash metal style well.

Hey JBM, long time no speak, hope all is well. I post very infrequently to the blog at this point. The whole war on file sharing rally took the steam out of my sails. I do another blog called United By Rocket Science which caters to current bands. We do live show reviews, album reviews etc, but even over there I am a bit of an infrequent contributor.

I actually do have the Storm Alert Lp by Torture. I picked it up recently as part of a pretty large metal album collection I uncovered, haven't had a chance to give the Lp a good listen just yet.

Take care,
