Still working on that hot first release.



Brutal outfit Crux ov Torment manifest a demonic sound comprised of blackened death metal injected with the high intensity of thrash, drama of doom, and momentum of groove death. Based out of Buffalo, NY, founding members Jose Ortiz and Will Burtis share a musical history having performed together in the early 2000s. Fast forward to the summer of 2019, Ortiz and Burtis reconnected and the foundations of Crux ov Torment were laid. In spring of 2022, the duo recruited The Agonist’s drummer Simon McKay to record percussion for their upcoming debut album. Now in 2023, with drums completed, Crux ov Torment have released a series of demos including “Burning Desire”, “The Links”, “Nothing” and “Six Feet Under” that showcase an early glimpse into the crushing darkness that waits eagerly to be unleashed. Drawing influences from the likes of Rotting Christ, Behemoth, Lamb of God, Metallica, and Fear Factory, the band seek to craft their own distinctive sound and avoid falling into genre constraints. Each work they produce carries its own identity ranging from anguish-fueled, guttural onslaughts to riff-focused, rhythmic assaults. Following the unveiling of Crux ov Torment’s demos, Ortiz and Burtis are preparing to enter the studio to lay down final vocals and guitars. Crux ov Torment’s first full-length offering will emerge from the shadowy realms in early 2024.
