Formed in 2004 by former Damned Cause members Dennis Olsen and Jay Giaccio. Looking to create something new, Jay (guitar) and Dennis (bass) set out to put together a band that would combine their metal and hardcore influences. Enlisting old friends and local band veterans, Anthony Gavin (guitar) and Jason JaKa Karnatski (drums), System Torture was on its way. Quick to gel, the 4 began writing songs almost immediately. The long search for the right vocals began. After months of going through several potential vocalists, it was Brian Bleeker Keffel (formerly of Lost Dog) that finally put an end to their search. Brian's unique doom and hardcore vocal style, and deep lyrics were a perfect fit. The band entered the studio in 2005 to begin work on their debut CD, When Hate and Metal Collide, scheduled for release in early 2006.
System Torture has begun tearing through local clubs exciting fans both new and old. Keep your eyes and ears open, this is a band you don't want to miss.
