Official press release:
20 Buck Spin presents the second full-length by Portland, Oregon’s Torture Rack, titled Malefic Humiliation. Confirmed for late May release, the album’s “Masked In Leeches” has been premiered at Metal Injection as the label posts pre-orders for the record.
The Pacific Northwest continues to be a stronghold for relevant new death metal in 2018 with Torture Rack among the few that are leading the pack. Malefic Humiliation captures the savagery for which their live shows have become the stuff of legend; subtlety bludgeoned, beaten, and hacked to nothing but a red mess of leftovers. With a lineup that includes members of labelmates Witch Vomit, Torture Rack carves out their mark in the festering corpse of the Northwest on Malefic Humiliation, bashing through nine tracks in just under thirty minutes. “Mace Face”, “Corpse Revenge”, and “Destined For Dogmeat” are not for the faint of heart, and the vile cover art by Sebastian Mazuera (Crurifragium, Warpvomit, Imprecation) makes real the sole intention for Torture Rack: barbarism.
Unleash “Masked In Leeches” at Metal Injection.
A must-hear for fans of Cannibal Corpse, Engorged, Lord Gore, Scorched, Witch Vomit, Fetid, Mortician, and Morpheus Descends, Torture Rack’s Malefic Humiliation sees release on CD and digital platforms on May 25th; find preorders at the 20 Buck Spin webshop and Bandcamp where the track “Festering Castration” is streaming.
Parasitic Records will release the album on vinyl (including a 20 Buck Spin mailorder color variant) and Headsplit Records will release the cassette.
Having appeared throughout the Northwest and in 2017 made their East Coast debut at Maryland Deathfest, Torture Rack is set to crush in 2018 with their first ever Europe appearances including the massively anticipated return of Killtown Deathfest.
