    Harmonicraft often strays into pastiche when they attempt to cling on to their past, but comes into its own when it strides confidently into new realms.

    Harmonicraft is a short, sweet collection of pop-metal confectionery, irresistible if not unforgettable.

Sure they’re heavy but they also have a love for pop guitar lines and vocals so catchy you can’t help but sing along. The combination is in line with iconic bands like Sugar or modern bands like Foo Fighters, though Torche have more sack in their songs than the latter. Harmonicraft is a screaming beast of an album, one that constantly switches up the dance between prog-rock, hardcore and pop. Imagine if Rush had been made up of kids who loved Slayer and The Smiths and you’ll start to understand the genius of Torche. Full Review »

I was introduced to this band by the RedEye crew - specifically Greg - and they've delivered live. I popped the second album in the CD player while doing some soul-crushing desk work, and before I knew it, I had played the thing four times. Just a tremendous album. And yu've got to love the fact that a metal band with an out lead singer is introduced to the public by a Mike Huckabee-narrated video on Fox News. Funny as hell. Full Review »
