Finnish death metallers Torchia release their debut album ”Of Curses and Grief”on October 27th and heads on to tour Taiwan.
The album is produced by Hiili Hiilesmaa (HIM, Amorphis, Ensiferum) so expectations might rise high for Hiilesmaa has worked with some top names out there. The band tells the sound they were after was some what old schoolish, organic and raw in a way that really serves the music. Advance sale is now on and you can get your own piece from Recordshop X (https://www.recordshopx.com) or Inverse Store (https://www.inverse.fi) where you can also find t-shirt bundles. ”Of Curses And Grief” will be distributed internationally.
The first single ”Fury” is now out and there’s also a music video released for it. This is what the band itself had to comment about the video: ”In the video for Fury, Torchia accompanies nameless souls in their danse macabre. The protagonist sets out to defeat the judgemental light, but gets dragged back into darkness. The blind live out their agony, for it is the only thing that haven’t been taken from them.”
