Far Beyond Existence” features a mix of fast-paced, thrashy sections with brutal, death metal-inspired passages. The songs on the album often incorporate intricate and technical guitar work, accompanied by aggressive drumming and thunderous bass lines. The lyrics touch upon themes of social and political issues, human nature, and personal struggles. While opinions may vary among their fans, “Far Beyond Existence” grips you, tearing you apart!
Fans of European death thrash should prepare themselves to embrace the sounds of Torture Squad. Drawing comparisons to renowned acts like Sodom, Suffocation, Coroner, Legion of the Damned, and the iconic Brazilians Sepultura.
The introduction of vocalist Mayra injects a fresh and invigorating energy into their sound. Vocalist Mayara ‘Undead’ Puertas makes her full-length debut, evidently, stepping in as a replacement for the long-standing lead singer Vitor Rodrigues. Puertas brings a low, dry bark that can plunge into profound depths or soar to higher pitches.
The album traverses chugging death metal, blistering thrash, melodic black chords, occasional clean passages, and captivating technical fills. Amílcar Christófaro and Castor refuse to settle into a predictable groove, providing relentless energy that propels Rene Simionato’s virtuosic guitar work. In fact, examining each track individually would underscore the band’s productive four-year hiatus, proving that their time was well spent.
While some may argue that a selection of eight songs could have been stronger than the current ten, on the contrary, it’s important to note that every track meets the established standard. Though none quite reach the epic scope of “Blood Sacrifice,” both the title track and “No Fate” offer captivating twists and turns.
Indeed, “Hate,” “You Must Proclaim,” and “Hero for the Ages” provide a visceral experience that resonates on an instinctual level, while still incorporating experimental elements. Furthermore, throughout the album, Simionato’s guitar solos shine, leaving a lasting impression, although it would have been interesting to see them further explored given the song lengths.
Surprisingly, the band’s technical prowess maintains a cohesive flow from start to finish. Meanwhile, “Far Beyond Existence” could have ventured into acoustic interludes. “Far Beyond Existence ” remains unyielding, delivering bone-crushing thrash death metal with relentless intensity
