One of the most renowned bands of Brazilian metal, TORTURE SQUAD, released the live album ‘Tortura en La Iglesia En Vivo’, with the unreleased single “The Fallen Ones”, which is accompanied by an incredible and conceptual music video produced by Eric Luchini ( Tilt Filmes) premiered exclusively on the Decibel Magazine website. ‘Tortura en La Iglesia En Vivo’ is available on digital platforms and will get a physical version soon.
About the new single, TORTURE SQUAD comments: “The Fallen Ones is a science fiction song inspired by abduction stories from movies and series like The X-Files (1993) and Signs (2002). The sound of this new song is a powerful blend of elements from Thrash, Death Metal and Progressive Metal. The music video was produced by Eric Luchini, who has worked on major productions for companies such as Netflix, and features a suspenseful plot that stimulates the viewer’s imagination, questioning the truth behind these events”.
‘Tortura en La Iglesia En Vivo’ synthesizes the energy of the headbangers present on July 16, 2022, where the band performed in a sold-out night at La Iglesia, in São Paulo, one of the largest metropolises in the world, and the entire recorded show gave rise to the new live album.
Currently TORTURE SQUAD continues with a full schedule, performing shows throughout Brazil, and is preparing to take the stage alongside Exodus on December 4th. More information on the website: https://www.torturesquad.com.br/
