Apostasy Records is now offering an exclusive pre-sale package for At the End the Dead Await, the debut from Swedish death metallers Overtorture. The package, which includes the album on digipak compact disc, t-shirt and a poster, is available via the record label's Big Cartel page. At the End the Dead Await will see an official release on January 25th.
Overtorture features veteran players from Grave, Coldworker, Demonical, and Insision, and their upcoming debut has been described as: overwhelmingly brutal, and tempered only by a penchant for melody. Self-produced by the band and mixed/mastered by Ola Englund (Six Feet Under), the album is made complete with the artwork of Gustav Germann (Guger Art) who has also worked with Hail of Bullets and Vomitory. Recommended for fans of Bloodbath, Grave, Vomitory, and Bolt Thrower.
Album track "The Outer Limits" is available for streaming on the Apostasy Records Soundcloud page.
Overtorture formed in 2011 by Magnus Martinsson, Joel Fornbrant, Fredrik Widigs and Jonas Torndal, with the mission to deliver diverse Death Metal with both melody and brutality. Songs quickly came together and demos were put into final form in late 2011.
In March 2012 the band tapped Andreas Hemmander, an old friend and former band mate (Bloodride) of Magnus as second guitarist, and the line-up was finally complete. Shortly after the band signed a worldwide deal with Apostasy Records and started recording their debut album.
