From Hidden Volume Records…Meet, The Torments


Another awesome cool Band in our series of Bands from Hidden Volume Records, its time for The Torments. Southern Culture On The Skids meets The Cramps and Link Wray and a whole lot more , making it all new and NOW.. I’m hoping they dig that comparison because they are three bands that I hold pretty high up. Good old trashy sweaty rock n roll, party music, dance music, music to eat Hot Dogs to…

Let’s Meet….The Torments

Hi our name is….

The Torments

And our sound might be best described as….


We are…..

Shouting Thomas Torment (The Howl)
Chanda Torment (The Beat)
Alyse Torment (The Shimmy)

We are originally from…..

Akron/Cleveland Ohio

The first time we met was…..

Alyse & Chanda were in a band called Lady Lead Foot who played
a few shows with Thomas when he was doing his one man band
thang. Much love and admiration was shared by all. Awwwwww!

We knew we were going to be a Band when………

Our collective love of Trashy Rock & Roll, Sexy Dance Moves &
Fancy Footwear made us an offer we couldn’t refuse.

Before starting the band we were employed as…….

We COULD tell you, but then we’d have to bury you out back.

Our craziest gig ever was….

The next one. Don’t miss the chance to be part of thee SPECTACLE!

The first song we wrote was…….

Gravedigger (currently available on 45 – hint, hint, hint)

It’s about……

Hating your Goddamn job, digging graves & wearing black.

What we are currently listening to….


A few albums we could never part with….

All the ones we already own plus the good ones we may steal from you when
your back is turned.

For fun we like to…..

Surf, frolic in graveyards, eat hot dogs, ride The Creamer, exchange
fashion tips & scream as loudly as possible.

The one thing we want you to remember while your listening to us……

Don’t be fooled – even a monkey can do it!
