Death Metal90 | 02/08/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I have listened to Deathmetal since 1990 and I just now discovered this band. Torchure are an extremely talanted 5 piece German Death machine who offer a great variety in their style. The songs are rather long, 6- 7 minutes but they are totally interesting and will not bore you at all. They play a style that will appeal to fans of Morgoth, Pestilence and Asphyx. Torchure plays semi technical Deathmetal with some slow doom/Death parts. Songwriting is very creative with memorable riffs crushing production, good musicians all around. There are a few acoustic passages and keyboard interludes which sound extremely dark and wicked, adding to the pure DEATH atmosphere. If this band had been on a more prominent record label back in the early 90s, they could have been as well respected as Pestilence. If you are a fan of early 90s German Deathmetal, "The Essence" is definitely worth buying. Also pick up their debut album "Beyond the Veil which is equally great!!!."
