Ok so let us be straight up and honest here .. you have to get Torqued, and I really mean get. The first time I really came across them was this year at Amplified 2018. They came onto the main stage early in the day and yet seemed to draw a crowd .. so of course, I went to check them out. The sound these three Devon groove metallers produced was immense.
Marc Cleave – Bass Guitar, Vocals, Kurt Johnson – Drums and Rimmy Sinclair – Guitar have put together the darkest, dirtiest, heaviest groove laden platter you will hear this year … fact. Your mind will be blown and your speakers too.
But in amongst all this fabulous noise are some great hooks, tormented lyrics and just, well, crafted tunes. There may only be 4 songs on offer here but as they say .. “if Carlsberg did groove metal ….”
We are Torqued and long may that be the case …
