Genitorturers [Special]

The Genitorturers are an industrial metal/industrial rock band from the United States, with influences extending into the 1990s Hardcore punk and Electronic Music. They proclaim themselves to be "The World's Sexiest Rock Band".

Originating in Orlando, Florida, the band was founded by lead singer Gen while attending pre-med. The Genitorturers made their debut and progressed in the 1990s Florida "Hardcore" music scene with contemporary bands such as Marilyn Manson and the Spooky Kids that would also become a success in later years. According to the band's official web page biography: "What emerged would be a band that would go beyond shaking up the house that 'Mickey' built and extend to paving the way and breaking ground for performance based music artists thereafter worldwide".

In 1993, IRS Records owner Miles Copeland (who had discovered and nurtured careers for bands such as The Police, Sting, REM, The Go-Go's, The Bangles and Concrete Blonde) sent his assistant Nick Turner (former drummer for Lords of the New Church) to see the band perform. The quality of the performance, as well as their musical style containing fused elements of hardcore punk, metal and industrial electronic led them to a record contract. Soon after that, they would record 120 Days of Genitorture. After recording this album, former Morbid Angel bassist/vocalist David Vincent (Gen's husband) joined the Genitorturers on bass. He left Morbid Angel after the 1995 album Domination to join his wife's band.

The band has done extensive touring in the United States, Japan, and Europe and is internationally renowned for its exploits, pornographic show content, and unique style of music.[citation needed]

Their most recent release Flesh is the Law (EP) includes the track "Lecher Bitch", which was also included in the November 2004 videogame release Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines. Earlier releases have included Machine Love which contains a remake of the Divinyls' hit “I Touch Myself” which was produced by Dave Ogilvie and Rob Zombie producer Scott Humphrey .
