Severe Torture – “The Death of Everything” (Official Music Video) 2024
The dominion of death metal is about to tremble once again as SEVERE TORTURE, the Dutch masters of the genre, make a colossal return with their latest single, The Death of Everything. A track that encapsulates the unyielding force and darkness that SEVERE TORTURE has been synonymous with since their inception.

Echoing from the hellish depths of Torture Compound Studios and refined into an onslaught of precision by Mendel bij de Leij of MbdL Productions, The Death of Everything stands not only as an insignia of SEVERE TORTURE‘s relentless aggression and darkness, but also as a foretelling of the dread-laden masterpiece their new album – Torn From The Jaws of Death promises to be.

Ethereally transcribed on Pär Olofsson’s macabre cover artwork and narrated through grinding riffs, gargantuan roars, and thunderous percussion, The Death of Everything emerges and crafts a story of death metal’s everlasting resonance and Severe Torture’s innovative command of the genre. The track’s lyrical crusade plumbs into the profound depths of murder, depravity, and the stark critique of organized religions, rendering it an experience equally jolting to the senses and the psyche.

For over 25 years, SEVERE TORTURE has embodied the ethos of Brutal. Death. Metal. A genre-defining titan, they’ve held a commanding presence in the metal universe since 1997, blending intense performances with a relentless commitment to their visceral, raw sound.

Born from the bowels of the Dutch underground, the band emerged onto the world stage with their debut album Feasting On Blood, hailed as an epic watershed in the nascent wave of brutal death metal in 2001. Their hard-hitting, merciless sound has since rippled across North and South America, Europe, and Mexico; their trail marked by five ground-breaking releases over the past quarter-century.

Remaining relevant in the ever-evolving realm of metal is no small feat, a task Severe Torture met by continuously levelling up. In pursuit of rejuvenation and to capture the aggression and energy befitting of a new era, they amicably parted ways with original drummer Seth in 2018, bringing Damiën Kerpentier into the fold. The move signified a new chapter for the seasoned ensemble, marking a seismic shift that breathed fresh air into their creative process, leading to some of their darkest, most profound work yet.

This invigorated spirit came to life in 2022 with the release of the EP Fisting The Sockets – the band’s first release in an astounding 12 years. The record served as a triumphant herald for their resurgence, re-signing with Season of Mist and rekindling the flame of their brutal origins amidst a pandemic-stricken world.

Now, in 2024, Severe Torture is set to escalate to new heights of sonic savagery with their sixth full-length album, Torn from the Jaws of Death. Recorded at the infamous Torture Compound Studios, the album stands as a testament to the raw energy, blood, sweat, and relentless brutality that the band represents.

From the aggressive whirlwind of riffs in The Death of Everything, to the haunting black metal nuances of the title track Torn from the Jaws of Death, the album is a death metal cogitation on murder, torture, and the madness of organized religions. Crafted with an unwavering commitment to the genre, Torn from the Jaws of Death is a grim reflection of the world, drenched in the band’s signature brutal death metal sound.

As the anticipation mounts for the release of Torn from the Jaws of Death, you can be sure Severe Torture remains alive and thriving in the heart of brutal death metal, pushing boundaries, and refusing to bow to conventions. A quarter-century in, these stalwarts of the scene are just getting started. Stay tuned to witness their relentless progression as they continue their incessant march through the annals of metal history.
