Decibel magazine is the best metal/extreme music publication there is; Torche is one of the best bands in existence (regardless of genre). So yeah, it doesn’t get much radder than a combination of the two, the result of which is available as part of Decibel’s esteemed and consistently excellent 7″ flexi-disc series, which is, unfortunately, available to subscribers only. Luckily, we’ve got the songs in a disappointingly non-vinyl, downloadable form for y’all! Both tracks were recorded during the sessions resulting in 2010’s sugary sweet Songs For Singles EP, but ended up not making the cut I guess. That doesn’t make these songs any less awesome, with both tracks, ‘Pow Wow’ and ’80s Prom Song’ packing more sludge-poppy punch in less than four minutes than MonstrO could muster in an entire album (that’s their former guitarist Juan Montoya’s new band btw, I’m not a fan). The band is currently in the process of putting together a new record and I’m beyond excited, but for now, here’s ‘Pow Wow’ and ’80s Prom Song’.
