Torche is a band from Miami, Florida, whose sound is often described as stoner metal, sludge metal or doom metal.


The group was formed by Steve Brooks (ex Floor), Juan Montoya (ex Floor, ex Cavity), Jonathan Nuñez and Rick Smith (who also plays in the grindcore band Shitstorm). They have toured with Mogwai, Isis, Pelican, Baroness, Jesu, The Sword, Stinking Lizaveta and Boris. Steve Brooks, however, has said that they don't consider themselves a metal band.

On April 8, 2008, the band released their second full-length, entitled Meanderthal. It was met with critical acclaim.
