Renowned for their status as agents provocateur of the underground hard rock and industrial metal scenes, the latex defining and pop-culture defying Genitorturers return with the Nov. 3, 2009 release of Blackheart Revolution [G-Force/MVD Entertainment].
The outfit’s fifth studio release, Blackheart Revolution is a mesmerizing blend of infectious riffs and riotous overtures that lay the sexually-charged foundation for frontwoman Gen, the master of turbo-charged ceremonies and erotic rituals. The Genitorturers live spectacle returns to the road fall 2009 with dates in the U.S and 2010 will include stops in Australia, Europe, UK and South America!
“We wanted to make a big rock record that translates the same excitement I felt when I heard AC/DC’s Highway to Hell for the first time, combined with the dark intrigue of Alice Cooper’s Welcome to My Nightmare,” says Gen of the new release. “We wanted something that shakes the walls, grabs you by the balls, and scares you a bit in the process!”
Mission accomplished, as Blackheart Revolution combines the band’s signature, genre-bending style of aggressive rock, seductive metal and underground electric pop. Co-Produced by David “Evil D” Vincent [Morbid Angel] and Scott Humphrey [Motley Crue, Rob Zombie, Ozzy Osbourne], the album is a roller coaster ride of musical twists, sonic turns and reckless abandon.
A product of Orlando, Florida’s musical underbelly, what Genitorturers lack in wholesome family fun, they make up for in their celebration of the unspeakable, embracing and exploring our conservative culture’s taboos. They caught the ear (and eye) of legendary music industry magnate Miles Copeland, who signed the band to their first deal on his I.R.S. label, where they joined the ranks of fellow Copeland signings Gary Numan, The Go-Gos and R.E.M.
The lead single from Blackheart Revolution, “Cum Junkie,” is currently available via digital release, as well as in limited-edition, 7-inch vinyl. The collectible physical release will be the first in a series of vinyl singles to be released from the album, each complete with expansive packaging and uncensored artistic detail.
From their beginnings as upstart mavericks, to their current status as veteran iconoclasts, the only boundaries the Genitorturers know are the boundaries that they shatter.
The Razorblade Dolls (official)
In late 2006, The Razorblade Dolls were developed as a social network recording project originally with no intentions of becoming the seven year success that it is today, opening for acts such as Mindless Self Indulgence, Front Line Assembly, The Genitorturers, My Life With The Thrill Kill Kult, RevCo, Atari Teenage Riot, Michael Graves, Ghoultown, Combichrist, Bozo Porno Circus, Wednesday 13, and Hanzel Und Gretyl. The band gained attention locally early on from word of mouth about their live shows which have included mutilation with barbwire, whips and chains, fire breathers, eating insects, chainsaws taken to pig and horse heads, and recreating scenes from horror films.
These images grew so popular that the first single released contained a pig head on the front of the artwork and shirts were made in the same nature. In 2008, The Razorblade Dolls released their first self-titled debut album. Today it is a key product still sold both digitally and at venues. The album itself was produced by Chris Telkes of Nocturne fame and contained artwork by Count Lyle of Ghoultown. Telkes would later join the band as a guitarist.
The Razorblade Dolls have made it priority to focus on performing live shows as opposed to releasing music. New material is released into the set slowly as a marketing strategy that insures what is being written will be in demand when released as a collective whole. Shows have been performed in every key city in Texas along with cities in Oklahoma, Missouri, Kansas, Louisiana, and New Mexico. In 2013, the band performed it's 200th show and celebrated its seven year anniversary.
Today, The Razorblade Dolls are in negotiations that will allow a broader stream of opportunities to occur for both the band and the fans, including performing in different countries, an increase in stage production, a larger variety in merchandise, and a third album in pre production. The release of this album will be followed by extensive show bookings as well as a promotional campaign.
