The Genitorturers emerged from Orlando in 1993: an S&M band in the shadow of Disneyworld. Its hard to confirm rumors that audience participants at Genitorturer shows get their scrotums nailed to wooden boards. But such activity would be true to their name.
In their 15 years, the Genitorturers have prowled the world, bringing hard-core rock and sadomasochism to the people. Their performances feature lots of lashing and sex play. Throughout the song House of Shame, a man swings on hooks in his nipplies. The Genitorturers traffic in the best industrial music. They came out of the hard-core scene in ΄90s South Florida, which also brought fame to Broward Community College journalism major Marilyn Manson. Their work has been featured on VH1 and, if youll believe it, Fox News.
