Torche may be a stoner metal band, but strip away the layers of drop-tuned, crunchy guitars and you have songs built on a foundation of pop hooks. Tracks like "Grenades" from 2008's rollicking Meanderthal channel skyscraping major-key harmonies and upbeat guitar leads instead of the genre's typical aggression. This is metal that will make you smile as you rock out.

Torche's vinyl split with experimental drone/metal band Boris, Chapter Ahead Being Fake, drops June 29th.
