The Most Metal Day of The Year With “Tormenter”

July 24th, 2015 is a date that has solidified itself as nothing short of monumental for the metal world. On the one hand, a record that undoubtedly helped to shape the course of metal into what we see today dropped on this day in 1990. The 25th anniversary of Pantera‘s Cowboys From Hell serves as a humble reminder of just how far our genre has come since the days of hair metal and also, in the words of one Mayhem Festival founder, just how “Old, Fat, and Bald”, we have all Become. On the other hand, the long awaited studio return from Lamb Of God has finally dropped. Coincidentally, Sturm Und Drang finds its release date coinciding with the launch of the Summers Last Stand Tour which sees Lamb Of God setting out to absolutely destroy North America with Slipknot.

Just in case all of this isn’t enough to get your cold metal blood pumping, today also sees La Puente, California‘s Tormenter re-releasing their sophomore album Prophetic Deceiver on Static Tension Recordings. While the band being signed to a label is something we highly commend, the music is what we are all here for, so lets get this started.

I can sit here and tell you how the albums recording quality is immaculate, the guitars are tight, the vocals and drumming is the “Bees-Frickin-Knees”, but you won’t truly grasp the abundance of kick ass Tormenters Prophetic Deceiver has to offer. So instead, let’s try this: Close your eyes and picture, if you will, Slayer and Exodus having a musical baby. Got it? GREAT! Now imagine Obituary and Ascendancy era Trivium have a musical child of their own. These two babies grow up together, they fall in love with one another, then during a night of sweat whips and passion, the condom breaks. The ensuing serial killer, i mean… baby, with its sweet guitar licks and unstoppable double bass would get you in the ballpark of the absolute madness that is Tormenter.
