Torch

Torch was formed in Trondheim, Norway in 1999. Their style back then was a combination of hardcore and nu metal. The sound of their early demos bears a strong resemblance to the style of bands like Korn, Deftones and especially Snot.

In 2003, with new key members added to the line-up, they released the Visions of... EP. It was released independently through Hardstar Records. The EP led to a successful national tour with the bands Miksha and Turdus Musicus in early 2004. They toured England the same year, gaining praise from small, but enthusiastic crowds.

Torch was formed in Trondheim, Norway in 1999. Their style back then was a combination of hardcore and nu metal. The sound of their early demos bears a strong resemblance to the style of bands like Korn, Deftones and especially Snot.

In 2003, with new key members added to the line-up, they released the Visions of... EP. It was released independently through Hardstar Records. The EP led to a successful national tour with the bands Miksha and Turdus Musicus in early 2004. They toured England the same year, gaining praise from small, but enthusiastic crowds.

In 2005, the band would sign to the Norwegian indie label Kong Tiki Records. Their video, The Experiment debuted on the national TV charts Urørt Svisj and ZTV. It helped them keep the fire hot while they started recording their debut album. The recording process would eventually take 7 months to complete. The documentary, titled How To Start a Fire was added as a limited edition bonus DVD on their debut album. The Experiment remains the band's most well-known song.

On March 27, 2006 Death To Perfection was released. It debuted at #23 on the Norwegian Billboard Chart, supported by a video for the song K-Bomb that would air weekly on ZTV. The album debuted at #1 on the charts on Trøndertoppen (The Trønder Top). The band would end up playing the biggest festivals in the country like Quart Festivalen and Stavern Festivalen, sharing stages with bands like Tool, Placebo, Opeth and Wolfmother.

In 2008, the band released a self-titled EP on cassette to the surprise of some. Ever since the recording of the EP the band has been busy writing and recording the follow up to their debut album. The album was finished and planned to be released in 2009, but after a lot of delays their second studio album "Pt. IV: A New Beginning" was finally released worldwide on August 26, 2011.
