Wow! What a step forward Cannibal Corpse has made! Synthed orchestras, accordion, even some female operatic segments thrown in! This is clearly the dawn of a new era for this band, reinventing themselves into something far more intricate, dynamic and delicate than we've seen from them - or metal in general - for ages.

Rating: 9 Holy shit! This fucking album has crucified my soul and made my head explode with lust for more gore! Hell shit yes! Bought the last one at Best Buy today and wow, I must say its just amazing and godly!

Rating: 9 I didn't really mind the last few cannibal corpse albums, but on 'Torture' the band seem to be fully revitalised, shredding and writing excessively brutal material like it's 1989. My particular highlights include 'Caged...Contorted' and the epic closer 'Torn Through', but you could really pick any song to support the fact that CC are still masters of what they do best. Sure, there is little variety here, but to me everything seems heavier, faster and nastier.

Rating: 8 ''The Strangulation Chair'' is really great .
Cill O' Connor - 18.04.2012 at 22:33  
Rating: 8 Torn Through is the best track on the album imo. As Deep As The Knife Will Go is another awesome one too. Really good, technical turn out from 'Corpse.

  Only really heard Encased in Concrete and Demented Aggression off of it. Reasons arose that meant iTunes royally arse fucked me so I can't listen to it for virtually 4 weeks. I therefore have decided to boycott MP3 music and get this on LP. Loved the two tracks I heard though, real facemelters. Just got to get the vinyl past my parents now...

Rating: 7 I like it, but nothing has really stuck in my head after 3 spins.

  I'm going to have to take back everything bad I've said about this album, now that I own it and it's getting some play time, I really like it. Cannibal Corpse is crazy consistent.

Then I suppose you would have despise "Evisceration Plague" incessantly. Or not? Well, Torture is a great release from over-weight guys and sounds much better than Plague. But, then I won't even deny your opinion claiming that you didn't like a single song because I think if you go for a more spins, probably, you will like to shift from your banter conclusion.

well i gave this album at least 10 spins. maybe 15 or 20 even. i just dont like it. i like riffs here and there as on demented aggression, as deep as the knife..., followed home then killed and caged contorted but when it comes to a whole song i dont like the other parts of them. on the other hand i like very much evisceration plague. it's a bit unconsistent but it contains some songs i like a lot. so the summary goes with plague... i also dont like that much the production of the album... it sound to me "we did it raw cause we had to".

This is the definition of a waste of time. You're not going to suddenly find new intricacies upon further listens - at least not that many. I mean it's Cannibal Corpse... probably the most digestible death metal band of them all.

well i disagree. i remember evisceration being very digestible to me but kill needed many spins cause at first sight i found it not that good. also, technicality is a huge factor of making an album not that digestible and CC have a lot of it. the fact that they are very predictable doesnt mean that they are also digestible...

NocturnalStalker - 01.02.2013 at 16:15  
Rating: 8 The same good old Cannibal Corpse, which is not necessarily a bad thing. Yes, it doesn't sound fresh and gets repetitive closer to the end of the album but it still contains some pretty good death metal songs, such as "Scourge of Iron", "As Deep as the Knife Will Go", "Intestinal Crank"...

Rating: 8 I first got this album expecting yet another Cannibal Corpse album, and that is what I got... kinda. They are showing signs of musical ability on this album finally, and I love the switch-up sound on Scourge of Iron. I saw them live about a week after the album came out, and their really long set was fine tuned and spot on to the album, only a bit better.

They have long had great musical ability, both in creating catchy, and at times, highly technical death metal. The small difference with this album is that vocals aside, the songs sound like they could have been created by different bands. For instance, "The Strangulation Chair" is a very different song sonically to say, "Demented Aggression". And "Scourge Of Iron" sounds very different compared to something like "Crucifier Avenged". That's what I love about this album, it still sounds like Cannibal Corpse, but there's much more variety on offer in terms of sonics between the different songs.

Rating: 9 It was a very good album ... In my opinion much better than the previous album was composed of several ... It was also an excellent track record .....

Rating: 7 Was on the verge of rating this an 8. Deserves around 7.3 to 7.6. The most enjoyable Cannibal Corpse album out of the ones I've listened to.
Infernal Eternal - 26.07.2013 at 12:00  
  One of the CC albums for sure.

Rating: 9 I used to read different comments concerning this album. In many cases the same idea was that the listeners have not found any fresh ideas... Shit! This is death metal! What the f***ing new ideas they wanted to hear?! Old sschool death metal is back! And it's awesome!!!

Torture >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Deathhammer

(just for the sake of it. also I like this one 10x better than Deathhammer)

I can't call myself a fan of either band, but Torture can't even touch Deathhammer in terms of quality, even if Torture is the only good CC album since the Bleeding.

  Cannibal Corpse at their best don't even match up to Asphyx at their worst.

I'm not that fan of Asphyx (or even Cannibal Corpse), I know some albums/songs and I enjoy most of them, but the production of Deathhammer was too much to me. Otherwise it'ld sound much better, who knows if better than Torture
