Torture Squad formed in 1993, and May provides a short, precise band history (XS Rock).

“The history of Torture Squad starts in the early 80′s years and the first release was in 1993, a demo

tape called “A Soul in Hell” and the drummer Amilcar and our

bassist Castor still in the band since the beginning.

I was born the same year that Torture Squad released its first demo...”

Torture Squad have collaborated with Kreator, Anthrax, Angra and more since their inception.

Vitor Rodrigues was originally vocalist then the mantle passed to Andre Evaristo,

until the band regrouped in 2016 with Return of Evil and May Puertas.

Her metal muses?


Fellow Brazilian warrioresses Nervosa earned a mention.
She, Venomous and Fernanda Lira (Nervosa vocalist) collaborated to cover Angra's 'Nothing to SayVIDEO

It blew listeners away, many metal musicians spoke in praise of their project.

“I was inspired by great bands leaders like David Vincent

of Morbid Angel, George Fisher of Cannibal Corpse and Alex Camargo of Krisiun.”

 How does their music convey reality? Bolsonaro’s brutal mindlessness against Amazon forests

and Indigenous Brazilians rages on like recent wildfires.

Protests are blacked out from view as much as the sky.

Torture Squad is the musical backdrop.

Day by day we deal with death, torture and manipulation by the governments

and music is a instrument to talk about this too.


Recreating our vision of the world using our heroes, we can talk about

Bruce Lee and the mighty Kali entity in the same album.”

Torture Squad also has plans for worldwide digital distribution with Sony, Brutal Records and more.

“Our highlight for 2019 are our appearance in Rock in Rio,

the biggest music and entertainment event in the world.
