Brazil's Torture Squad have been around since the late 1980's and have been an underground cult favorite since. Originally and until 2012, it was a sausage fest to the fullest. When vocalist Vitor Rodrigues left the band after 20 years he was replaced by a women who wasn't even born when the band started. Enter the powerhouse that is Mayara Puertas. Fronting the band since 2015, she has more than proven she can create the same hell on stage that Vitor did. Hailing from Brazil, she is a young 26 year old who has the vocals of the great early death metal and thrash bands. She also fronts the Grindcore band Regurgimentação Necrovaginal Sangrenta who originally had a male vocalist as well. Mayara is proof that women can do it just as great as the men who came before her. We are lucky she is only 26 so we can expect many more years and projects.
