Provocateur metal band Genitorturers embarked on their 20 Years of Depravity tour this year, with Bar Sinister being the hotspot for the Los Angeles date! What better location than a fetish Goth club? Known for pushing the envelope and defying societal norms, Genitorturers brought out every trick in the book for their milestone tour- ranging from various dark and demonic fixations with dancers to sexual innuendos and props. The atmosphere was unlike anything Bar Sin had seen before, and the energy was absolutely alluring.
The house was completely packed with passionate fans and dedicated audience members, with every enthusiast in the house moving to the music. Vocalist Gen brought a whole new meaning to crowd participation as she continuously interacted with everyone and had a lot of fun pulling fans up on the stage.
Although the lineup has changed countless times, the current roster is a rock enthusiast’s wet dream. With members that consist of musicians known for their part in other well-known bands, the entire venue was rocked with unmatched skill and fervor. Guitarist Eric Griffin undoubtedly made every female on his side of the front row swoon, with fellow bassist Ryan Seelbach stealing the show on the other side. Kriz rocked it out on the drums, playing with immense zeal.
