As the phrase goes: “a change is as good as a rest” and sometimes this is true because when it comes to music, it gives fans of the band to miss and appreciate them when they’re not around. This can be applied to Severe Torture who are back with ‘Fisting the Sockets’ their first EP in 12 years.

                If can safely be said that Severe Torture have been missed in their 12-year absence. The brutal death metal band hack through the door with an axe and as it splinters scream: “here’s Severe Torture!!”. This is chainsaw wielding murderous death metal which does exactly what it sets out to do like they’ve never been away at all. To put it bluntly, this is a primal concrete sledge of blunt force trauma as tracks such as ‘Hands and Head Not Found’ and the title track drive the spike through the auditory canals with all the appeal of Inveracity and Blood Red Throne as well as well Cannibal Corpse and Prostitute Disfigurement.

                As an EP, ‘Fisting the Sockets’ is a great way for Severe Torture to herald their return. Realistically, there is nothing new sounding here, but Severe Torture do what is fully expected and that is not a bad place to be.

"Severe Torture return in style!"
