Torche

In Return
Robotic Empire

Although In Return is only Torche's second record, you get the sense that this is one of those rare bands that will never leave you with a feeling of apprehension, wondering if the next record will be as good as the last. It's almost a forgone conclusion that it will be, and you'll be rendered giddy with anticipation for the new material. As expected, In Return doesn't disappoint. Rumbling in like a storm, "Warship," the album's opener, sets the tone before exploding into the title track and laying a solid foundation for the remaining five songs. Throughout Return, Torche delivers a veritable wall of sound and tone — not in a Velvet Underground sort of way, but in a manner that recalls Warhorse, Helmet, High on Fire and the Melvins — augmented by sparse, beautiful vocals. Considering that it's been three years since Torche released its debut, In Return is a very welcome effort from one of the underground's most unique and powerful acts.
