Tormented are a band from Sweden that has been featured before in this zine with a musical style I would describe as being old school Swedish death metal and this is a review of their 2013 album "Death Awaits" which was released by Listenable Records.
Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with a good amount of blast beats being thrown into the music, while the bass playing has a very dark tone with riffs that follow the riffing that are coming out of the guitars and at times they have a very powerful sound to them.
Rhythm guitars range from s low, mid paced to fast old school Swedish style death metal riffs that are very heavy sounding with a good amount of melody being thrown into the riffing, while t he lead guitars are very melodic sounding death metal guitar solos and leads.
Vocals are mostly deep death metal growls that are very easy to understand along with a brief use of spoken word samples, while the lyrics cover darkness, horror and gore themes, as for the production it has a very strong, powerful, heavy, old school and professional sound to it.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Tormented and if you are a fan of this band, you should enjoy this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Blood Orgy" "Insane With Dread" "To Spill Her Blood" and "Black Sky". RECOMMENDED BUY.
