The band TORTURE SQUAD began their activities in São Paulo, Brazil, in the early 90’s and they are right now without any doubt one of the biggest metal bands in Brazil.
In 2007 the band came again to Germany to play at the Metal Battle in Wacken. With a phenomenal show they convinced the audience and the jury of the Metal Battle competition and won. As a result of this success TORTURE SQUAD decided to sign a contract with Wacken Records and the first result of this cooperation is called “Hellbound”. This album will for sure be the final break-through for the band in Europe and it will manifest their status in South America. The release of “Hellbound” goes along with a European tour including more than 70 gigs all over the continent.
Their most recent studio album “AEquilibrium” will be released in Europe on August 2010 by Wacken Records / H'art / Zebralution / SAOL. They had recorded a new version for the title track of their third album “The Unholy Spell” which is included as bonus track with the title of “The Unholy Spell 2010”. The album was recorded in São Paulo/Brazil, at Norcal Studios with producers Brendan Duffey and Adriano Daga.
As Augusto Lopes and Vitor Rodrigues left the band recently, the band became a trio with the guitar player André Evaristo singing too.
Now the busy schedule continues to TORTURE with important gigs in the band’s career, such as Quito Fest in Ecuador, with "Anthrax" and "Misfits" in São Paulo, and for the first time in "Palmas" (TO) as the main attraction in "Tendencies Festival".
