VIDEO: Torche live at the Middle East Downstairs

Torche, "Pirana" and "Sandstorm"

Torche, "Across the Shields"

The metal might of Torche, one of few bands who effectively combine scorching stoner metal, sludge, and something resembling catchiness, was on full display last Friday when they shared a bill with Clouds (picture Drive Like Jehu meets Josh Homme) and Boris (see Brockman for more info). We have called Torche the best new band in Florida, and if we witnessed at the Middle East was any indication, several bearded, ponytailed, hat-wearing, allergic-to-bathing metalheads agree with us.
