Veteran metal quartet Torche understand that you can’t continue to release the same record. And so Restarter was born. It’s the band’s heaviest album to date, a step back toward their early days of Melvins worship and melodic sludge. It’s not a retread, but rather a band returning to its roots after a decade of playing and experimenting together. This isn’t Meanderthal, and it isn’t a Floor record; nor is it bound by the rigid pop song structures of Harmonicraft. Torche sprinkle a little bit of everything throughout the career-spanning Restarter.
