The Genitorturers cut their teeth, honing their music and live show initially in the early 90’s Florida “Hardcore” music scene. What emerged would be a band that would go beyond shaking up the house that “Mickey” built and extend to paving the way and breaking ground for performance based music artists thereafter worldwide.
In 1993 the band caught the ear of Miles Copeland owner of IRS records, who had discovered and created careers for acts like REM, GoGo’s, The Bangles, Concrete Blond and STING. He was drawn to the band whose live shows were becoming infamous regionally and quickly sent his assistant Nick Turner ( former drummer for Lords of the New Church) to Florida to check out the band. Upon witnessing the power of the bands live show which included a music style which crossed over from hardcore punk into metal with industrial electronic elements, the band was offered a record contract and set out to record “120 Days of Genitorture”.
Today GENITORTURERS have succeeded in making believers of even the stodgiest music critics who prior to witnessing them live had all but written them off as some kind of gimmick….“Yes, they have their schtick……but can they play? You betcha!. Their hard driving yet brutally sexy rock and roll sucks you in.. and once you are there you are hooked!
