Torche

After the breakup of Floor in 2004, Torche vocalist/guitarist Steve Brooks decided to carry on the thundering tradition of his former band, recruiting guitarist Juan Montoya (also formerly of Floor), drummer Rick Smith, and bassist Jonathan Nuñez. This lineup evolved the sonic template Brooks had created with Floor into a lush and more fully realized sound. In 2005, the Miami four-piece released their eponymous debut Torche on Robotic Empire, introducing the world to a new brand of doom/stoner metal that replaced the bleakness and despair typical of the genre with a more triumphant and anthemic sound: the heavy metal equivalent of Chariots of Fire. Combining de-tuned, droning guitars reminiscent of doom luminaries Earth and Sunn 0))) with soaring, harmonic vocals, Torche created a new take on the genre that is best described as "doom pop."

After the album's release, the band began extensive cross-country touring, sharing bills with the Sword, Mouth of the Architect, Jesu, Isis, and Mogwai. In March of 2007, Torche released a remastered version of their self-titled album featuring the bonus track "Make Me Alive." In the summer of 2007, Torche released the beautifully packaged EP In Return on Robotic Empire, featuring a jacket designed by John Baizley of Baroness. Late in 2007, the band announced that they had finished recording their second album, Meanderthal, which was released in 2008. Later that year, guitarist Juan Montoya left the band due to creative differences. The remaining members carried on a a trio, touring with bands like Harvey Milk and Coheed and Cambria. In 2010, the band released the EP Songs for Singles on Hydrahead. ~ Gregory Heaney, Rovi

Incredibly awesome band live. Torche kills it.
They are not AMAZING which is on the list of the most overused words besides DUDE. They pretty much suck and sound like most of the other metal bands
Holy crap amazing band!
One of the best bands to have come out since HUM! HAMORNICRAFT is one the greatest albums ever made!! And, I agree with Hillary--why ISN'T FLOOR on Pandora????

This band is amazing but why is Floor not on pandora? I'm kind of infuriated by that.
This band is boring. Has a mediocre drummer and droning sound indicative to a lack of talent. Thumbs down
This is my number one album, and they're best. Such a positive allbum flawlessy made. The rifs, the bass and drums speak words and landscapes most wish to be able to achieve the way TORCHE has with this album (in my opinion of course). And, Robby, I think James Hetfield invited Torche to play that festival!!!

They should update this to say that they recently played the Orion Festival in NJ... With James Hetfield watching from side stage :)
better than queens of the stone age...how are they similar???
Torch, Torch'e , Torsh ?
Heavy progressive metal
@Stevil - Did you know Steve Brooks now lives in Atlanta?

I've seen them 3 times over the years, and each time has been great. The last time, however, I wasn't as drunk as I had been in the past, so I was able to remember the show much more clearly than the past. You can tell these guys are having a BLAST playing shows. Great stuff.

These guys kill in their live shows, I catch them everytime they come to Atlanta.
jus saw them last nite for the third time!! some much energy and im lovin the bomb string attack!
i really dig meanderthal. f**king solid as all hell.
this band moves it's foot swiftly to a posterior.
This band is really a nice, breath of fresh air for a hard rock / metal fan. I am sooooooo sick of what is now "popular" in commercial success sense. Like what you hear on rock radio - puddle of mudd, disturbed, godsmack, Nickleback. PUKE, PUKE, PUKE.....
A tough combination of sludge and beautiful harmony to pull off, but I'll be damned if these guys don't nail it on the head.
