Torche: Restarter

From Stereogum:
“The Florida band Torche have found a home in the metal underground, but “metal,” at least in its current definition, isn’t really an adequate term to describe what they do. Instead, Torche stack huge choruses on top of huge riffs, working up a mountainous sound that’s absolutely overwhelming if you listen to it loud enough. It keeps you in that deep-immersion head-nod mode, the way the best stoner-metal can do, but it also has these huge triumphant melodies that can make you feel like you’re flying. They absolutely rule, and their new album Restarter, the follow-up to 2012’s Harmonicraft is a worthy addition to a hell of a legacy.”
Restarter is out now on Relapse Records; listen to “Minions” below.

My name is Michael Dix; I'm a decade or so past being down with the kids, but to me new music never gets old. Apparently I like music that sounds like faulty kitchen appliances and ritual slaughter; really I just like what I like, whether that happens to be indie, pop, punk, hip hop, metal, electronica, Afrobeat or jazz. Follow me on Twitter @FoamHandsBlog to receive notifications of new posts and the occasional random brain-fart, and please share links wherever you can. Enjoy!
