OUT Sept 25th, 2020
OUR RATING 85/100
TORCH, legendary underground classic metal band from Sweden, are finally out with their long-awaited comeback entitled REIGNITED, out on Sept 25th, 2020 via METALVILLE RECORDS.
Torch arrived on the scene throughout 80’s with an EP and two full-lenght.
They had the chance to play many tours across Scandinavia and Europe, including an experience with Motorhead.
Disbanded in the '80s, some members went on to join Crystal Pride, while In 2003 singer Dan Dark put together a new line-up to play shows.
Torch successfully reunited in 2013 with four original members and new guitarist Hakky.
After an appearance at the Sweden Rock Festival 2018, the band decided that was time to hit the studio and record a new album, the abovementioned Reignited.
Also in this new platter we can find the original trademarks of the band, twin guitar for riff harmony, a tight rhythm section, brilliant guitar solos and the classic and iconic vocals by DAN DARK.
Songs such as Knuckle Duster, Cradle To The Grave, Snake Charmer and Collateral Damage are both fresh and classic, reminding early years of the band and the inspiration of the best SAXON, with powerful riffing, squared rhythm section and solo parts always to remark.
We have no fillers; we can appreciate anthemic ALL METAL, NO RUST, which grows second after second, last and longer TO THE DEVIL HIS DUE and sparkling FEED THE FLAME.
