Rock & Pop, Seasonal Special Happenings


When: Tue., March 17, 8:30 p.m. 2015

It’s been ten long years since the hard rocking Torche first came together. Band members has all played together in different groups but bassist Jonathan Nunez says the group had good chemistry right from the first rehearsal. The band came together about ten years ago. Talk about how the group first formed. Released in 2008, Meanderthal signaled the band’s coming out as its sludge-y guitars drew equally from stoner rock and grunge, distinguishing the group from a slew of like-minded metal acts. “There’s been no limitations or barriers,” says Nunez when asked about the band’s experimental approach. “Our approach is that if it feels good, roll it. You can hear it the music.” The band’s new album, Restarter, is yet another intense offering. “We just wanted the raw pummeling power that I feel when we have on stage,” says Nunez. “It feels good to be on stage. We have our own sound. From the raw audio that we hear, I wanted people to hear that. I want them to put on the record and know it’s us. Some people have complained about the dynamic range. Have you seen us? [The live show is] balls out. I hate to sound crude saying that. It’s on 11 and it ain’t going anywhere.” You couldn’t ask for a better description of the band’s approach. (Niesel)
