I just love these guys because they are incredibly sick. The only work I dont like from them has to be in the Lymphatic Phlegm, just didnt like it. What is everyone elses opinion on this band? because I love them and I will kill the human who says they suck (without a reasonable argument, don't use the typical "noise" argument).

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y5WPKqpxdg0 Here's something I just found hilarious.

They suck. They are just like Mortician, guitars are tuned down six billion steps, bass turned up to eleven, vocals are just gutturals with no effort to pronounce any lyrics, the excessive bass sound kills any form of groove. To put it simple, it IS noise.
This might sound hypocritical coming from someone who likes the new Waking The Cadaver song, but everything here melts together into just a soup of crackling noises.

Yes, Mortician do suck, mostly due to terrible production (were they to clean that up I am sure more people would like them), but unlike Mortician, the drums in Torsofuck don't overpower everything when they go into blast-off and the guitars don't sound like they were recorded in the middle of a corn field. As to the vocal style, I think it perfectly matches the music. Simple death growls or screams just don't seem like they would work with the heavily downtuned guitars.

I do not think Torsofuck are the greatest thing since the Winter War, but they certainly aren't bad, either.

The vocals ruin it all, but I don't think the music is very good either.

The only song I've heard from them is Raped by Elephants.. and that's the only reason why I listened to it.. because it was called Raped by Elephants..

Haha, most complaints there against Mortician fit perfectly agains Torsofuck.

Either way, I like it. Nothing awesome, but I'm sure I could make it through a cd.

Easily amused? I guess you have to be to enjoy this style of music.

They aren't my favorite band by any means, but I'll spin "Erotic Diarrhea Fantasy" from time to time. Then again, I'm a fan of bands like Mortician and Hymen Holocaust....

I find these guys absolutely hilarious. The lyrics to Four Legged Whore and Raped By Elephants are simply genius. Musically, they're pretty good for what they are, although I couldn't listen to them all day. Oh, and they actually look like rapists too

Torsofuck is a decent band, fun to listen but only occasionally.

Am I the only one who thinks that too much brutality induces laughter? :p

Nope. ;)

They're a gimmick band for me, sometimes fun to listen to just because they are so ridiculously br00tal. As for being heavy for the sake of being heavy they accomplish their task. But, when you look at it from a more serious point of view, they are one prime example of how NOT to make extreme music.

But goddamn, do I hate those unending song intros. Yeah, we got it, this song is about cannibalism, elephant sperm or whatnot. Apparently the best way to create the mood for this lovely choice of theme is to expose us to minute upon minute of trashy horror movie clips. Why do so many bands think this to be necessary?

i dig Mortician (especially the early stuff, that stuff is GOLD!!! & the albums aren't nearly as bad after you delete the intros)
i think TorsoFuck is pretty much crap


but respectfully:
i've heard better
&
i've heard worse

Mortician > Torsofuck.

Especially in their demos, Hacked up for Barbeque|Zombie Apocalypse, and House by the Cemetery.

I can't see youtube here at work but it can't be as bad as French Blackmetal band Hiver Noir.

Eh, I hadn't listened to Torsofuck in a while when I wrote that. I gave EDF another listen today and you are right to an extent on the drums, but unlike Mortician, where it almost sounds like the guitar tone is "hidden in a fog" (if you get my meaning), the guitar tone is very clear (at least clear enough where I can make out every note) on EDF.

It is more like Mortician than I thought, but it somehow just works better, I guess.

The music is the worst you ever heard?? Don't you think that's a little bit of an extreme statement?

I find them humorous, enjoy a couple of their songs...but certainly not on my regular rotation.

:lol: same for me. As for the band I give them a spin time to time because I do enjoy brutal death metal and the lyrics give me a laugh.

oh yes that whole era of Mortician is FANTASTIC
any fan of Napalm Death, Repulsion or Celtic Frost would appreciate it (if they are honest with themselves that is!)

Yeah it just might.

Their riffs are really good, some of the only slam death i enjoy. The vocalist is damn good too. Although the COMPLETE non-understandable gargle is always there his vocals themselves are great. Drum programming on EDF is very good and didn't annoy me. And jesus christ the lyrics are so random "I cut off its tail and shoved it up my ass"?!? The thing that makes me fucking hate them and virtually every other slam band is that they must put samples that last just as long as the music itself. I don't like most movies and I dont like samples. I like death metal.

That said, I really like to blast Raped by Elephants on my stereo when im here by myself and fucking mosh myself all to shit.

I think I'd might like them better if the singer didn't sound like a fuckin' bullfrog.

But thats just my opinion.

Judging from this statement I would assume that you've never heard Törr's Tanec Sv.Víta. There cannot possibly be a metal album worse than Tanec Sv.Víta. St. Anger fucking pales in comparison to the awefullness of Tanec Sv.Víta.

I can't imagine that the same people who made 666's Nekrofile demo are capable of producing the worst metal album of all time.

I once thought that way, then I listened to the afore mentioned album. It was horrible. Kind of like a cross between Rammstein and The Kovenant, only more danceable.

:lol: apparently there's not too many brutal death fans on this thread...

To me Torsofuck is a kick-ass band and I like all their work. I do NOT listen to them only because they're funny, it's because their music kicks ass and get me headbanging with all those incredible blast beats and beatdown riffs.
Also you should see how great these guys are live)! Look at the singer and his arms!

Mortician is also great band IMO.

I love torsofuck and I wish they would use their second vocal a bit more, you can hear their second vocal towards the end of Pussy Mutilation.

And samples wayyyyyy too long!

Does anyone have an example of a song of theirs where ANY lyrics are distinguishable from the vocals? Because I find it amusing that they have the sickest lyrics around, but I can't hear a single word of it.

They have amusing lyrics, but when it comes to the vocals, are they actually sung? Because I can't hear them if they are. That's the only thing that ruins it for me.
