TORMENTA – Tormented Souls
Hailing from Maldives, an island nation in the Indian Ocean, this thrash band Tormenta has much in common with Sepultura on this 6 song EP “Tormented Souls”. The four piece have gruff vocals and a raw sense of passion with tracks like “Hours Of Darkness” and “Hanged, Drawn and Quartered”. When they slow down, their technical guitar tricks will have many think of Testament, and yet I wonder if some of the instrumental sections are a little too metal core for the ardent mosh mongers.
I’ll stick to the originals and pass on “Tormented Souls”.
