January 29, 2010
Season of Mist is proud to announce the label just inked a deal with Dutch death metal brutes Severe Torture. Welkomst!

Bassist Patrick comments: "We are very excited about signing to Season of Mist! They have an amazing bandroster and we can't wait to release our new album on the same label as Dillinger Escape Plan, Cynic, Morbid Angel, Watain and many others. We already had our share of label experience in the past, some good, some bad, and we have the feeling that working with Season of Mist is going to be a big step up for us! Merci beaucoup, motherfuckers!!!"

Severe Torture Working On New Album
April 26, 2009
Dutch brutal death metallers Severe Torture have started the writing process for their next album, the follow-up to 2007's 'Sworn Vengeance'.

Severe Torture bassist Patrick Boleij discusses the band's recent activities:

"Here's a short update to let you all know what's been going on in the Severe Torture camp over the last couple of months. We've actually been working our asses off, writing the finest death metal tunes possible. We have about 6 songs down and riffs and ideas for 4 or 5 more. We'll be finishing those in the next 2 months. Musically it's gonna be one of the fastest, sickest and most brutal Severe Torture records ever! This stuff is gonna be fuelled by the sheer disgust of all the whimpy, lame-ass, fashion-crap that's been polluting the music industry for years. And it made us realize all the more what we love most... Playing brutal fuckin' death metal. The plan is to start pre-production in July and have everything ready for recording in September.

"As far as festivals go we have a pretty laid-back Summer coming up; "Neurotic Deathfest" on May 30th in Tilburg (Netherlands) and "Move Your Fucking Brain" in Barcelona (Spain) on the 4th of July. We are exited to play at Neurotic again this year and we can't wait to play Spain again in July. Maybe we'll throw in a new song just to try out, who knows... Check our MySpace in the coming months for more updates and video-previews of the new stuff. It's gonna be brutal!"

Catch Severe Torture live this Summer at the following shows:
5/30 - Tilburg, Netherlands - Neurotic Deathfest, 013
7/04 - Barcelona, Spain - Move Your Fucking Brain Extreme Fest

SEVERE TORTURE started back in 1997. From the original line-up Thijs (guitar), Patrick (bass) and Seth (drums) are still present nowadays. In 1998 the band released a demo called "Baptized in Virginal Liquid". After that demo Dennis (vocals) joined the band and in 1999 they recorded a 2-track promo. The promo was released as 7" EP by Damnation Records and in 2000 the band finally signed a deal with Dutch label Fadeless Records. Fadeless Records then merged with Hammerheart Records and in the meantime the band did their first small tour through Europe with Damnation (pl).

Finally it was time to record their debut album "Feasting on Blood" at Franky's Recording Kitchen and great cover artwork was designed by Joey Maloney. In January 2001 SEVERE TORTURE hit the European road as support act for Macabre and Broken Hope. In April 2001 SEVERE TORTURE played the Ohio Death Fest and a couple more U.S. shows to promote their debut album. Then in March 2002 the band recorded their second album "Misanthropic Carnage" (again at Franky's Recording Kitchen) and SEVERE TORTURE toured the U.S. for the second time as support for Deeds of Flesh and on top of that great festival appearances were made at Ohio Death Fest & New England Metal Fest. In October 2002 SEVERE TORTURE toured Europe again as support for Cannibal Corpse and during this tour the band met Marvin who joined the band on guitar and from that point they continued as a 5-piece.

After a lot of canceled tours SEVERE TORTURE decided that it was time to move on to a new label and as a farewell Karmageddon Media released a killer live album recorded by Tue Madsen (The Haunted) with cool additional bonus material. A new deal was signed with EARACHE RECORDS and the new album "Fall of the Despised" was released Autumn 2005. May 2006 was the 3rd time SEVERE TORTURE brought their music to the U.S. with an appearance at the Maryland Deathfest. Summer past by with appearances at Kaltenbach Open Air (AT), Brutal Assault (CZ) & Party San Open Air (DE) and still overwelmed by those festivals SEVERE TORTURE started preparing to hit the road with Vader & God Dethroned for a 6-week trek throughout Europe Sept/Okt/Nov 2006.

November 12 2007 Severe Torture will release their highly anticipated new record: Sworn Vengeance!
