Records - Torche (2 stars)


Torche (Rock Action)


Imagine a being rising from the primordial quagmire, shaking its thunderous fists in a display of brute strength, conjuring a whirlwind of frothy guitars and emitting an uncomprehending, enraged bellow. This is what Miami sludge rockers Torche should sound like: an almighty warrior risen from the earth to destroy humanity with feedback and power chords. Unfortunately any proclamations of impending doom are buried beneath so many guitars that they may as well be asking for a cup of tea. Torche are not yet a threat to human life or the charts, but given a bit more evolution they may yet have something to say.
