Cock and Ball Torture

Cock and Ball Torture, also known as CBT, is a German pornogrind band, formed in 1997 by three ex-members of  Carnal Tomb. The band’s style may be compared with their countrymen Gut, the German legend of grindcore, as it is mid-tempo grindcore with pitch-shifted vocals and lyrics based on porno. Their style has slowly changed since the beginning, through porngrind to brutal death metal.

They appeared as a trio in early 1997 and after six months of rehearsals visited a local studio to record a promo tape “Cocktales” which appeared in several underground zines, getting very good reviews. Years later, after several splits and EPs, the tape was re-released on CD by Shredded Records, and a year after followed the debut CD “Opus(sy) VI” which was released in 2000 by the same label. In 2002, their second full-length “Sadochismo” came out as another great success for the band. In 2004, they apparently decided, with the release of the third album “Egoleech”, that their gore/porn image isn’t their thing anymore. The vocals on the new album are not always pitch-shifted, to take advantage of the change.
