TUNE Torture Garden - Torture Garden
‘Torture Garden’ is a song from Torture Garden’s forthcoming second demo ‘Dead Romantic’. The song is clearly divided into two distinct sections; one very slow and one very fast. The two parts are separated by a soundscape consisting of several tracks of tortured screaming, performed in the studio by Matt Ford. The bell sound which dominates the first part of the song - and the transitional ‘screaming’ interlude - was recorded by Matt at St Hilary’s Church, Wallasey, Merseyside, England, and then processed to sound exactly one octave lower.
The song's lyrics were written before the band decided upon their name.

I see dying people
Wracked by guilt on slick machines
Flesh riddled with religion
Disease of enfeebled dreams
A police pig in every head
Stands guard over stifled screams
Our demons will never pardon
Eden was born a torture garden
