Torture Killer - Dead Inside EP - Reviewed By Metalcrypt ! Check it out here at this link: https://www.metalcrypt.com/pages/review.php?revid=13827
Cool little EP from Torture killer here. That opening guitar riff is just infectious, and I can’t get it out of my head. This errs on the side of thrash, so it’s not over-the-top brutal or anything of the sort, rather quite incisive and razor-sharp and pretty tight. The growls are not too guttural and mostly decipherable, a good fit for the music which is more on the old-school style of death metal before things took a turn for the faster and heavier variety. The EP is very much on the short side and is over before you know it, which is too bad because I could certainly do with a full-length of the stuff. Looking forward to whatever next Torture Killer come up with. - Metalcrypt

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).
