The main goal of A Tortured Soul, formed 2002 in Milwaukee / Wisconsin, is quite obviously to develope the mystical and theatrical style of the danish heavy metal royalty MERCYFUL FATE respectively KING DIAMOND onward to something fresh and furious, filled with youthful power. This has been evident on their privately released 2005 debut album already, which saw a reissue in a changed version on a German label in 2007 and it has been done thoughtfully with respect to the masters. Right now in 2010, after joining the ranks of PURE STEEL RECORDS recording artists, they continue from the point where their debut album ended. These guys don't take the easiest way, they arrange their songs thoughtfully with playful structures, powerful grinding riffs with a mystical approach, nearly excessive lead axe eruptions and exciting moments only the diamond king could create with such an intensity. There are surprising twist and turns within the songs all over the album, crowned with an extremely charismatic singer, who still dares to bow before the grand master of Danish horror metal. And so the album "Lucifer's fate" (another hint on the band's personal heroes) is a powerful statement of a still young and hungry act saying that the epic and theatrical mystic power metal has just unfolded it's full blossom of unearthly majesty and beauty, for this amazing mixture of playfully twisted arrangements courtesy of above mentioned Scandinavian cult acts, majestic doom metal as played by CANDLEMASS among others and the hard driving power metal fury you will find with CAGE and the likes knows only one aim. To fill A Tortured Soul with new metallic power and magic and then unleash it like a steam hammer out of control upon the metal scene tortured by mainstream trends and plastic music.
