In our endless quest to push and support underground acts that deliver the goods unaware of trends and hypes, we're extremely excited to introduce you to “Barbaric Persecution”, the gore-drenched and pus-oozing debut album from the Portland (Oregon, U.S.A.) based bunch of sickos called TORTURE RACK. Formed back in 2012 and featuring past and present members of bands such as Cemetery Lust, Witch Vomit and Blood Freak, this quartet spew forth brutal, gruesome, vicious, bulldozing, ultra-heavy and downtuned music that will crack your every bone at their rack and take you back to the glorious Death Metal of yore when bands such as Rottrevore, Decrepit, Morpheus Descends, Imprecation, Goreaphobia, Baphomet, Deteriorot, Execration or Corpus Rottus reigned supreme in the most foul-smelling pits of the U.S. underground scene. To top it off, “Barbaric Persecution” was mastered by Mike Lastra at Smegma Studios (U.S.A.) with an almost surgical precision in order to keep the band’s sonic delivery as raw, organic, thick and heinous as (in)humanly possible.
