HUMANUFACTURE album is the 4th studio album by Polish industrial groove metal band TORTURE OF HYPOCRISY founded in 2007. The release is an essence of the band's ultra-modern style and sound compiled with mastery of tracks composition. Album is representing the 7-string guitars mastership with groove drumming, concrete bass, challenging growls and screams, and strong vibe of electronic ambience inspired by video games such as Deus Ex series or Cyberpunk. The conceptual layer was to show a metaphorical picture of recreating and reprogramming a human entity in modern society - human which turned to be a battery for GDP fed by fake news and social programs like Chinese "Social credit system". The record features also the unique, almost 10min long industrial masterpiece titled "Body Parts Reproduction Facility”. HUMANUFACTURE is the new quality in the meaning of industrial metal, redesigned to be based on atmosphere, heaviness, severity and interesting composition, instead of techno-like music played by thousands of bands in this genre. As always, the band delivers a full top-tracking album with no-throwbacks policy. The official sponsor of this record is Mayor of Braniewo.

Torture of Hypocrisy stands out by representing holistic and conceptual approach to all aspects of music creation. Each album concept is fluidly matched with lyrics, music, including choose of instruments, artworks, video clips and what is outstanding - the sound color and atmosphere of final master tracks. This aspect is strongly planned and designed to fit all other aspects of the music. The conceptual approach to the issued music forced the band to combine elements of many genres such as groove / death / progressive metal / djent and even ethnic or electronic music. Inherent elements of ToH's music are also ambience appearing in the tracks. ToH style is characterized by a huge dose of groove, the severity of 7-string guitar riffs, intricate composition and English lyrics with diverse topics. As a result ToH developed its own recognizable sound and style stamp, which is a rare thing nowadays where most of progressive or djent bands sounds alike. "
The band TOH deliver some excruciatingly heavy, ultra-modern metal music that builds to a chilling, haunting climax” - Daniel R Warnes - POWEPLAY MAGAZINE
