Album Review

After Torche lost guitarist Juan Montoya shortly after the release of their benchmark album, Meanderthal, the metal world waited to see how doom’s most likable and upbeat band would shake out after the change. Torche’s response comes by way of Songs for Singles, an EP that shows that Steve Brooks and company are still able to crank out the massive, droning pop that everyone has come to expect from them. The loss of Montoya can certainly be heard on the album, as there’s a lack of the spacious guitar work that could be found all throughout their self-titled debut and Meanderthal, but Torche seem to be making the loss work for them. Songs like “U.F.O.” and “Cast into Unknown” find the band taking a more direct approach to songwriting, opting to speak in short blasts of buzzing guitars and soaring vocals without spending a whole lot of time on drawn-out intros or atmospheric noodling. Clocking in at a little over 20 minutes, Songs for Singles presents a new and improved Torche who are as driving as ever, but with newfound brevity, successfully packing the biggest sound into the smallest package. With such a tight, urgent sound, Songs for Singles is an EP that’ll give Torche fans enough new music to whet their appetites, but it’s definitely going to leave them hungry for more.

Customer Reviews

Most played album in my library.

This album is an 11 out of 10. I really like their other work, but they nailed it on this one.

Great album, but need more!

Classic Torche, but $10 bucks for this is too much. The album clocks in at about 20 minutes and is over before you know it. Need more!

Torche Still Rule

This was a fun album, very basic in terms of flow and song structure. With Juan Montoya gone, Torche seem more comfortable just rocking out instead of dropping jaws with colossal moments of raw heaviness, and trippy guitar effects. And while the album works entirely as a whole, it still feels a little quick. I felt more of the poppy vibe we know them for than anything else. But Im sure its what they were going for, and no matter what it always works. Torche know how to leave you wanting more, and Songs For Singles is their best example of that yet.

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...
