Finnish Death Metal is alive and doing well, just like the heyday of the scene back in the late 80s and early 90s. There seems to be a huge stream of new Finnish Death Metal outfits crawling out of the depths of the underground and Torture Pulse is one of these "old" new bands (they have been around for 10 years already).
God Leash is the Finns’ second album and nothing has changed since 2014’s 7-track EP Devilroot. Torture Pulse is perhaps the most "Swedish" sounding Finnish Death Metal band these days and has adopted the "Stockholm Death Metal" sound in a very detailed way, shamelessly aping the demo days of Carnage, Nihilist, Gorement and Dismember. God Leash is a throwback to the times when the glorious Swedish underground Death Metal scene started flourishing in late 80s and early 90s. If that’s what you are looking for, then God Leash is your thing. If you’re expecting something else, you’ll be disappointed.
But oh man, those ultra-crispy, down tuned guitar riffs have something magical to them. Torture Pulse have squeezed it all into their ultra-heavy, rotten and death-reeking sound, recycling the once so meaningful and wonderful Swedish phenomenon in the history of Heavy Metal music when every band tried to show they were the heaviest and most brutal band on the face of Planet Earth.
God Leash is a tribute to the past glories of the Swedish Death Metal scene. You’ll want to re-discover your Carnage, Nihilist and Dismember records for a breath of decay-infested Swedish underground Death Metal once you throw this into your CD player. That breath is soooo good!
