From Electric Valley Records:
Italian heavy rockers Slowtorch formed in 2005, with their current line-up dating back to 2012: Matteo Meloni (vocals), Bruno Bassi (guitars), Karl Sandner (bass), Fabio Sforza (drums).
The band have consistently delivered their signature barrage of straightforward, driving riffs, pounding drums, throbbing bass lines and roaring vocals on stages across Europe. Think Clutch meets Black Sabbath meets Corrosion Of Conformity.
Slowtorch have shared the stage with Orange Goblin, Mondo Generator, Karma To Burn, Fatso Jetson and Volbeat, among many others. The band’s upcoming album, »The Machine Has Failed« is set for release on 29 April 2022 through Electric Valley Records and promises riffs, raw energy and attitude aplenty.

Order »The Machine Has Failed« here:
“Slowtorch is here with their burning, straightforward new single »Kraken«. The song is off Slowtorch’s coming record »The Machine Has Failed« due out April 27, which you really need if you’re into absolute earworms with chunky riffs.” — Greg Kennelty, Metal Injection
“[Slowtorch] are kind of like Clutch on speed with a massively energetic frontman in Matteo Meloni, who also sports a fine set of pipes for this. To say they are hard-working doesn’t come close to what they try and pack in here; it’s real catchy, fuzzed riffing and with a thick vein of blues to the stoner sounds. [There’s] something so goddamned honest about their sound and their performance you want the rafters to be raised by the audience.” — Gizmo, Ave Noctum (UK)
