Emerged from Lancaster, blackened death flamethrowers TORTURE ASCENDANCY 1307 have steadily been firing up the venues of different parts of the US ever since their formation in 2011.
They distill their brand of sonic supremacy with the influences from both classic and modern maestros of black and death metal.
It is bludgeoning blackened death metal with superlative monstrous riffs and concise explosive solos, emboldened by sporadic experimentation.
Their lyrical themes tie into Gnosticism and Jewish Kabbalah, theosophy, philosophy and other occult subjects.
“We also explore the Veilburner universe as a story arc and also as a commencement, end or even continuations of a larger take on what I have created with Mephisto in Veilburner; I like to blend the concepts together so that the bands are connected in some way, yet separated musically,” comments the vocalist, Chrisom Infernium.
Torture Ascendancy 1307 released their debut demo offering, titled D.E.M.O.S. on July 17, 2019. Having the current and the former members of acts such as Veilburner, Pyrrhic Salvation, Tenth Circle, and Human Repugnance, the blackened death flamethrowers have already shared stages with Soulfly, Immortal Bird, Mortician, Vital Remains, and Krieg to name a few.
“D.E.M.O.S. pays homage to our past, who we are now and where we are headed in the future, it’s also a collection that pays respect to our influences without compromising the sound to any said genre or label. Last but not least it’s thank you to all of those who have supported the Torture!” they added.
