Title: “Live In Sin”
Label: MVD Visual
Release Date: 11/20/2007
Genre: Industrial Metal
The Industrial Metal vibe that the Genitorturers deliver in concert is quite intense and clearly not something that the pure at heart or chaste of body and soul would very well appreciate but who cares what they think in this case. The DVD film “Live In Sin” captures The Genitorturers in concert and appears to be their first effort in the medium – it’s also the perfect way to learn what they are all about from the safety of your home if you ever expressed interest in seeing them perform but had prior reservations for whatever reason. Before this arrived I had only heard about the level of intensity maintained during their shows in terms of the overall spectacle and graphic sexuality that is depicted during them. I had read that it was shocking, scandalous and outright profane at times and these descriptions definitely hit the nail right on the head when it came to what I would find featured on the DVD. Some of the scenes made me wonder how they were even able to release it with only the standard “Parental Advisory” as a pre-emptive warning but here we are. In the musical sense they are quite good and very heavy with a vibe that was somewhat reminiscent of old Rob Zombie and perhaps a little touch of Marilyn Manson thrown in for good measure. They do stand on their own and their groove is pumping on more occasions than it is not. The DVD gives us ten songs to enjoy and of the bunch my own favorites fell to “Flesh Is The Law”, “One Who Feeds”, and “Liar’s Lair” but to be honest the entire presentation offered a lot of interesting things to see and riffs to enjoy.
