Endless Torture
At War with War
January 2007
Released: 2006, Self-financed
Rating: 3.5/5
Reviewer: Luxi Lahtinen

Endless Torture from Sweden plays sort of retro-Thrash Metal which also has a certain Swedish -flavor to it, too. The Swedish Thrash -combo features Marcus Edvardsson (Souldrainer, Chastisement, Sanctification) on guitars, Tom Åsvold on drums (Paincraze, Dimension34) and Peter Mellgren (A*Teem) on vocals. And that´s really all it needs to create a solid piece of Thrash Metal. Musically, Endless Torture isn´t that far removed from such Swedish combos as early The Haunted, Corporation 187, Carnal Forge, Oppression and the likes as one might believe at first. With a strong stream of aggression and brutality that flow within their song structures, there´s also enough melody added in these two songs they have made available for this pretty damn promising (at least!) sounding demo. The band´s guitarist Marcus is what makes me happy by his truly ass-kicking guitar shredding. The man´s truly trained, knowing exactly to churn out mind-piercing riffs and just overall proving to be one hell of a guitarist. As prove for all this, just tune your ears for the second song “Breed by War” at 1:35 mark, and you are about to shake your head in an agreement with me about this fact. Also, Pete ain´t too bad as a Thrash -vocalist either. He has enough aggression and balls in his vocal delivery that overall support the band´s main intention to get Thrash -fans pleased by what they do this relatively strong sounding demo.

Sort of as ´summa-summarum´, 2 songs of promising, well-made retro-Thrash Metal is what´s on offer on this demo. If that´s something that makes you pleased, then by all means give Endless Torture a fair try. Namely it´s about the time to get a bit thrashed mindlessly again...
