So, I realise there is/was a thread in the Modern Rock forum, but there was only one post in it, and I feel these guys are more metal then rock.

http://www.myspace.com/torche

ANYWAY, any fans?

I love their feel, and their style. Great, fuzzy, powerful music.

Their first, s/t album was more on the sludge-y side, and was stunning, and their newest album, Meanderthal, still has that sludge feel, but is more upbeat, and almost pop-y.

Just an overall great band, IMO.

Well, if the band thinks they are "rock" then "metal", then they are "rock". Plus they sound really rock, almost punk.

I like the guitar a little. Not my kind of music, but it's okay.

That would make Motorhead Rock when they are clearly Speed Metal.

Plus, how could you dislike a band with album art of this magnitude?

*Head asplodes* I've heard quite a bit about these guys, I just always kept forgetting to check them out. I'll be sure to do it now...

I really don't know where I would say to start, since I started with Meanderthal, so it really doesn't matter. I love it all.

I still need to hear their "In Return" EP.

"Triumph of Venus" owns my face, gives it back to me, and then owns it again.

Meh, nothing special. I wouldn't consider them metal though.

Heard one song on youtube, not bad.

Will give them a proper listen tomorrow or sometime...

Woo. My thread was bumped.


I haven't listened to these guys in a while, but their self-titled is really moving up as my favorite. "Meanderthal" is still wayyyy too infectious for it to top, but there are some great track on the s/t.

But, yeah, it actually would make sense that someone would consider their own taste in music excellent. It'd just be retarded if they didn't.

Thinking your music is fantastic and being a dick about it a different thing.


I do have the bad habit of making it sound like my music is the best music in the universe, though. I don't turn my nose up at people or anything like that, but I always tend to try and 1-up the band people are talking about, even if I've never heard the band.

Pshhhhhhhhh. I am incredibly open minded and tolerant.

It's not that I say negative things about people's bands, but there are some times when I find myself trying to 1-up people. I don't even really mean to do it, because I know deep down that I shouldn't care so much.

But, alas, I'm compelled......

I trust FA's taste so I'll be checking this out shortly. This band sounds right up my alley, from what I've gathered.
#32
Wow....

It has been FOREVER since I listened to their s/t.


"Fuck Addict" has one of the greatest noise climaxes (sp? I've never had to spell that, I don't think.....) I've ever heard.

Oh. Uh, well I'm gonna try and get their self-titled soon, but until then I might just acquire it through...other means.

I've only listened to it once all the way through since that post up yonder ^^ and I found it pretty good. It didn't feel as cohesive and linked as Meanderthal, but I didn't expect it to. Still, great stuff, love the heaviness.

I'm gettin it now. I'll listen to it sometime this weekend.

Manti:

That "Fuck Addict"/ "Vampyro"/"Rockit" combo is just amazing, though.


I think that's the right sequence..... I get them mixed up. I do love those three songs, though.
