Published Apr 28, 2015Sludgy Floridians Torche dropped their crushingly heavy record Restarter earlier this year and recently finished up a headlining tour alongside Nothing and Wrong.
That's why Exclaim! TV caught up with the quartet at their Toronto tour stop to capture a live performance of "Minions," a track taken from their aforementioned LP.
Showcasing their grimy low end and love for hypnotic verses, Torche cycle back and forth between the distinct punch of their minimalist riffs and thundering open notes throughout the song. As the tune trudges along, psychedelic leads are layered on top of one another as drummer Rick Smith continues to pound away, and Steve Brooks offers his signature vocals between the track's relentless guitar lines.
Watch their performance now in the player below.
