"Storm Alert" (Escapi; 1989/2006)

Reviewed by Snidermann

Torture. What a great name for a band! And their CD, "Storm Alert," rocks hard and heavy. 

The overall musical expression and storytelling ability here is outstanding and very easy to listen to. Torture is in your face from the very first note until the last one finally dies away. 

"Storm Alert" is the perfect title for this CD because this band's music is swirling all over the place, just like a tornado. The vocals take a little getting used to, but are kind of cool when you do. 

Brutal and to the point, Torture kicks metal ass in this ultra cool heavy metal recording.

Rating Guide:

A classic. This record will kick your ass.

Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.

So-so. You've heard better.

Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.

Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
