Plus available on
Apple Music:

Edward Torchia adds about the track: “The up-tempo single ‘Plague Peasant’ is heavily driven by the melodic lead guitar, which has been the trademark of many Finnish melodic death metal bands, but not so often for Torchia. This song is somewhat an homage to our great countrymen and another favorite for all fans of old-school melodic death and Finnish sound.

Arising from the inner darkness of composer and lyricist Ville Riitamaa, TORCHIA takes inspiration from a multitude of metal subgenres and their mission is to revitalize the genre of melodic death metal by bringing in a sense of danger and unpredictability.

‘The Coven’ is now available for pre-order at the Rockshots Records’ official store ➤
