In a interview to a brazilian magazine, the members of Torture Squad said that Hellbound is "our '...And Justice For All'".
I can not disagree. This album shows a high level of maturity, both in the musicianship and in the lyrical content. The songs are longer than the normal (for Torture Squad's standards) with more intricate arrangements, and less emphasis on chorus.
There's also the inclusion of more keyboards and acoustic passages than on their previous releases, and we even can hear a sitar on the last song, the epic Hellbound. The sitar is played by Fabio Golfetti, musician from the brazilian progressive band Violeta de Outono.
But the brutality still reigns in the Torture Squad sound. This albums is really a killer release, and a must-have for the fans of crushing thrash metal. Recommended!
