Torturetekk was formed as a Dark Electro side project by the members of cult UK Electro Goth band Athamay (responsible for 1990s club hits Kiss the Whip, Falling and Eternal Torture).
Initially the tracks Electric and Escaping were written by Sean and released on compilation albums with guest vocalists. The remaining members of Athamay then joined the project releasing the RIP album in 2000
With the album being digitally released for the first time in 2020 with accompanying videos for the tracks Electric, Escaping and Falling. In 2019 Sean resurrected the project, again taking on the lead song writing role with additional Synths provided by Jo (Athamay), and returned to the formula of a more Electro sound combined with guest vocals and samples as on the two initial Torturetekk songs.
