Tormented/Rotten Death/Listenable Records/2011 CD Review

Tormented are a band from Sweden that consists of many veterans of the Swedish scene that plays a very old school form of Swedish death metal and this is a review of their 2011 album "Rotten Death" which was released by Listenable Records.

Drums range from slow, midpaced to fast drumming with a lot of brutal sounding blast beats being thrown in, while the bass playing has a very dark tone with riffs that follow the riffing that is coming out of the guitars.

Rhythm guitars range from slow, midpaced to fast Swedish style death metal riffs that are very brutal at times, while the lead guitars are very distorted sounding death metal; guitar leads and solos in the early 90's tradition.

Vocals are mostly classic sounding Swedish death metal growls that also have somewhat of a death/thrash feeling to them, while the lyrics cover gore, death and dying with other traditional death metal style lyrics that do not cover much new ground, as for the production it has a very dark, heavy and brutal sound to it.

In my o-pinion while Tormented is not the most original band that I have heard, i still think that they create quality Swedish style death metal and if you are a fan of this style, you should check out this band. RECEMMONDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Reversed Funeral" "Come Back From The Dead" "Vengeance From The Grave" and "Rotten Death". RECEMMONDED BUY.
