Tortured Demon are a 4 piece Thrashcore band from Oldham (UK), with their lineup consisting of: Jacob Parkinson - Guitar/Vocals Joe Parkinson - Drums Billy Hourigan - Guitar Sean Xavier - Bass/Backing Vocals. Having released their debut album In Desperation's Grip independently in February 2021, the band gained a slot at Bloodstock Open Air the same year, playing the Jägermeister Stage. Despite being billed to play at 12PM, they had an unprecedented turnout, resulting in the barricades and stage almost collapsing during the show.
This performance cemented their reputation as a formidable live act, and resulted in a rapid increase in the band’s popularity throughout the Uk underground metal scene. In 2022 Tortured Demon toured as openers for UK thrash royalty Evile and Xentrix, before taking the rest of the year out to focus on their highly anticipated second album. Tortured Demon are set to release their new album and return to the road in 2023 with a bigger and better stage show than ever before. With shows already being booked, including a slot on the Sophie Stage at Bloodstock Open Air, this year is set to be a big step up. “one of the most exciting bands to emerge for decades” - Moshville Times. “In Tortured Demon’s hands, the future of British thrash metal is safe indeed” - The Razor’s Edge
