Origin: Concord, California, USA  
Genres: Thrash Metal
Last update/review: September 30, 2003


Given their heritage (the band features two ex-members of the Bay Area thrash band Vio-lence), Torque sound about what one might expect, mixing more traditional early-nineties thrash with a more contemporary feel (often, a similarity to Pantera is evident). Though not revolutionary, the band play with aggression and conviction, and is recommended to fans of bands like Pantera and Machine Head. Two members were later seen in Technocracy, and after that guitarist Phil Demmel joined his friend Robb Flynn in Machine Head.
