We’ve been reporting on developments surrounding swampy sludgers Torche‘s upcoming Relapse debut, Restarter. Well now we’ve got just a little taste of what this new album will sound like in the form of a 30-second teaser. Hit the jump to be plunged into momentary sludgy bliss!


Ah, yes. Can you feel it? Are you basking? There isn’t anything particularly surprising here, but if (like me), you’re already 100% on board with Torche’s brand of heavy stoner rock with the occasional poppy flourish, then this teaser should satisfy you and stoke your hype.
