Out now - A Mascot metal classic from Torque << ALL NEWS 

Torque's 1996 stand-alone self-titled album, featuring former Machine Head/Vio-lence guitarist Phil Demmel, is re-released today! The CD includes 4 bonus tracks, and it's released on vinyl and digitally for the first time.

It was 1994 when one of the San Francisco Bay Area thrash scenes leading lights Vio-lence called it a day following the departure of vocalist Sean Killian who retired and Rob Flynn who went on to form Machine Head.

From that band, the remaining members formed the riff heavy, groove infused thrashers Torque. Fronting the band was guitarist Phil Demmel, who also took on lead vocals for the first time, along with guitarist Ray Vegas, bassist Deen Dell and with drummer Mark Hernandez. Torque released three demos between 1994 and 1997. The self-titled album released on Mascot Records in 1996 stands alone as the sole studio release from the band that came and went in the blink of an eye but hit you like a brass-knuckle sandwich.

Highly recommended for fans of 90s thrash metal, Pantera and Machine Head!
