Biography

There are two bands named Torture Garden.

(1) Originating in Merseyside, United Kingdom, Torture Garden were formed in 2006 by lyricist and vocalist Adam Ford (born 21st July 1981) and his multi-instrumentalist brother Matt Ford (born 4th November 1985), taking their name from a novel by Octave Mirbeau.

Torture Garden claim to be influenced by all variations of heavy metal, as well as dark, experimental artists from various other genres. In 2007, the band released their first demo - Rotisserie Of Pain - as a free download. 2008 saw the additions of Pete Lovering (bass), Dmitrij ‘Daemon’ Golovin (Requiem Aeternum, rhythm guitar) and Danny ‘SarkoFag’ (drums) to the lineup, however Dmitrij and Danny had to leave the band due to extreme political differences. As of late 2008, Christian Woods is the band’s keyboardist, and Tom Jenkins joined on guitar in June 2009. Drummer Hayley Morgan (Daear, Forest Perversions, Severed Heaven) completed the lineup in 2010. Jenkins was ejected from the band in 2011, and was replaced by former Acts Of Sorrow guitarist Calum Glover. Shortly after this, Morgan left to focus on Severed Heaven. The band are currently looking for a new drummer. In August of 2011, the band released their first full length album, Dead Romantic, on CD, and they recently released their follow up, The Great Depression.
