They had more or less lost track of the Finnish Torture Killer for nine years: it was 2013 in fact when their latest release was released, the album "Phobia"; today the Turku quintet returns with a new EP as short as not very useful: "Dead Inside", licensed by The Other Records and composed of three tracks, of which two actual songs and an instrumental interlude (also too long by the way). Just over 10 minutes of Death'n'Roll that attest to the Finnish band especially in the wake of Six Feet Under, with whom they share the same vision of the genre. Even a little better to be honest - but it is not that it takes all this effort to be better than Six Feet Under -, since in any case the compositions of Torture Killer however simple have a good structure, as well as the refinement of the refrains (catchy enough) and tasteful are the most melodic passages, especially in the final "Iniquity". And ok, you would expect more from a group that has members and former members of Adramelech, Demigod, Torso, Torsofuck, Archgoat, Cadaveric Incubator, Omnium Gatherum and Blood Chalice... but so much so: the Torture Killers give after nine years signs of life with this very short work of about ten minutes: for our part our advice to you readers is to use it digitally dedicating just that necessary time. Meanwhile, we will wait to be able to talk more specifically about the Torture Killer in case they return with a new full-length. - allaroundmetal

Finland’s notorious serial death-fiends strike back for the first time since 2013 with their new EP: Dead Inside - a gallows - end head stomper with more hooks than a cenobite in a meat locker. Torture Killer was formed in 2002 in Turku, Finland, with the goal of pursuing their passion for mid - paced, riff - driven, old - school influenced death metal. In the ensuing years, they’ve produced 4 full length albums and 2 EP’s, refined their craft and gained further recognition from their neck - breaking live performances. In 2022, they enter the void once more
with ‘Dead Inside’, the new 3 song EP which takes another step forward in their path of darkness, further solidifying their position in both the Finnish and global death metal undergrounds. Also features cover art by none other than Wes Benscoter! The current lineup remains concrete, consisting of Pessi Haltsonen (Vocals), Jari Laine (Guitars), Tuomas Karppinen (Guitars), Kim Torniainen (Bass) and Tuomo Latvala (Drums).
