Torche! Feel like they need an exclamation mark. One of nu-wave of old metal bands. Similar to The Sword, whom they are touring with at the moment. See the video for the live version of Healer, obviously from the tour with afformentioned band.

Where The Sword seem like more of a parody, in the best way, of hobbit obsessed hard rock/metal of yesteryear, Torche sound more like the desert metal of Kyuss and their many related offshoots.

Their album is a refreshing blast from start till finish. Mosts songs are fairly short which is another welcome feature of their music.
