The Tortured crew grew up in Australia’s much despised capital city of Canberra. A nicely manicured and overly planned city full of politicians can only lead to two things - a wasted life, or a life of getting wasted. These guys decided to have the best of both worlds - rotting their lives away playing extreme metal while getting wasted with the walking un-dead. In 2011 Tortured released their debut full length album, A Lesson in Holocaust on Grindhead Records. The album contains ten tracks of extreme metal and features shocking lyrical themes and a custom disc design that you’ll want to hide from the authorities.
Calenture is the fourth studio album by Australian rock group The Triffids, it was released in November 1987 and saw them explore themes of insanity, deception and rootlessness—the title refers to a fever suffered by sailors during long hot voyages.

The album spawned three singles, "Bury Me Deep in Love" (1987), "Trick of the Light" and "Holy Water" (both in 1988). The latter track was recorded with American producer Craig Leon.
