New Embodied Torment Video Interview @ Bay Area Death Fest in Oakland, California

In the video below Todd Owens of Capital Chaos TV chats with Sacramento’s Embodied Torment @ BADF 2 @ Oakland Metro Opera House – Oakland, California

Embodied Torment was founded in 2011, as Matt Chaco (vox) and Cindy Chaco (drums) joined forces with Casey Ryle (guitars), Joaquin Chavez (guitars), and David Ko (bass). After an initial phase of playing a fairly traditional form of death metal, represented by their early demo, the quintet gradually focused on the most brutal and extreme elements of their sound. Ryle departed in mid-2012, which saw the band continue on as a four-piece and record their ‘Kyphonism’ promo, which represented their new sonic direction.

After their first tour in November of 2013, their performances gained them the attention of rising death metal label New Standard Elite, with whom they signed on in June 2014. After an intensive period of writing, the band emerged in May 2015 with their debut full-length release, “Liturgy of Ritual Execution.” Built on a traditionalist framework of extreme, blasting death metal, the album weaves hymns of brutality with a dark atmosphere that is uncommon in the genre. Tracks such as Oubliette, Epoch of Suffering and Thrones of the Slain display a vision of dismal and brutal music reaching beyond the confines of Brutal Death Metal without compromising the extremity that characterizes the core of their sound.
Embodied Torment has also performed with such luminaries of the extreme death metal world as Crypt Infection, Euphoric Defilement, Exhumer, Amputated Genitals, Pessimist, Abhorration, SICK, Shawn Whitaker, Dying Fetus, Cattle Decapitation, Cerebral Bore, Krisiun, Omnihility, Carnal Decay, Arsis, Devour The Unborn, Corpsefucking Art, and Coprophiliac.

Embodied Torment And Solitary Priapism Slay Sacramento, California

After a long night of drinking, Nate and Colt decided to start a deathgrind band. The result is Solitary Priapism. On a drunken expedition to rape/impale child molesters with a ten foot pole, they discovered David Ko in a ditch, who joined their cause. He is now their bassist. After a strange turn of events, they accidentally created “Terminal Exhibition”, their debut album, while in the midst of a raging THC and whiskey binge.

In November of 2013, Solitary Priapism absorbed a fourth member. After a scientifically rigorous selection process involving binge drinking, moshpits, and depraved sexual acts, Shawn Ward has been selected as Solitary Priapism’s new bassist while David Ko has switched to guitars.

Embodied Torment took shape over the course of 2011, as Matt Chaco (vox) and Cindy Chaco (drums) joined forces with Casey Ryle (guitars), Joaquin Chavez (guitars), and David Ko (bass). After an initial phase of playing a fairly traditional form of death metal, represented by their early demo, the quintet gradually focused on the most brutal and extreme elements of their sound. Ryle departed in mid-2012, which saw the band continue on as a four-piece and record their ‘Kyphonism’ promo, which represented their new sonic direction.

In 2013 and 2014, the band refined their live attack and continued to push the boundaries of their sound into greater complexity and extremes of tempo and brutality. Embarking on their first tour in November of 2013, their performances gained them the attention of rising death metal label New Standard Elite, with whom they signed on in June 2014. Embodied Torment is currently at work writing their first full-length for a 2015 release.

The band has performed with such luminaries of the extreme death metal world as Exhumer, Amputated Genitals, Pessimist, Abhorration, SICK, Shawn Whitaker, Dying Fetus, Cattle Decapitation, Cerebral Bore, Krisiun, Omnihility, Carnal Decay, Arsis, Devour The Unborn, Corpsefucking Art, and Coprophiliac.
