TIVP was formed in 2012 in Deep River, Ontario by a group of 5 friends that had in common a love of Heavy Metal music. Diverse influences have merged to forge a new sound that is melodic whilst simultaneously technical and brutal.
Torture for Pleasure is:
Cicely Proctor: Vocals
Cici is a diminutive screamer with out-sized lungs. Tough girls come in small packages. As the voice of Torture for Pleasure Cici oozes swagger and authority that forces people to listen...or else!
Pascal (paco) Noel: Bass
Pascal provides the crazy bass that shakes the stage or stereo. Long suspected to be a sasquatch raised by humans (DNA test results pending), paco is able to lock in with the drums as a precision rhythm unit to propel the beat with a wall of sound.
Jason Woito: Drums
Jason has the fastest feet of any skin basher we've ever met.
Double-kick rolls fly from his feet with speed and precision. Jason's unorthodox style is a major contributor to TIVP's unique sound.
Guitar: Talon Risto
Talon is one half of torture for pleasure's dynamic guitar duo. A shred master, the sweeps fly from his fingers faster than the eyes and ears can track them. Tricky rhythms and speedy leads are what Talon does best.
