February 24th, saw the release of the fourth album by Miami based Sludge-Metal group Torch entitled "Restarter". This album is the follow-up to their 2012 release "Harmonicraft", which was a very well received effort, but also was a polarizing effort for some fans. "Restarter" is overall a lot more in vain with their first album, then it is with any of their recent efforts. Ditching the more poppy side of their sound, and instead adopting more of a guitar focused and heavier vibe. The album kicks off with the song "Annihilation Affair", which is one of the album's most heavy and expansive songs. The guitars on this track are dense and the drums sound huge, giving the track a explosive feel to it. Sadly, this track leads me to my main complaint about this album, and that is the undeserving length of some of these tracks. Songs like the self-titled track "Restarter" go on for way too long and end up making the album feel very one sided,. Especially since the three tracks before it have the same issues, even though their lengths are a lot shorter. This problem wouldn't be as prevalent if it wasn't for the albums lack of interesting musical moments at the back-half of the album. The tracks "No Servents", "Believe It", and " Barrier Hammer" have their perks, such has their heaviness and their instrumental performances, but even with those perks the songs just come off boring, and to be frank, kinda lazy. Which is sad because tracks like "Bishop In Arms", "Loose Men", and "Blasted" are really strong tracks that appear on the first half of the album. Though tracks like the first track and even track three "Minions" have their overly-long moments the tracks still feel a lot more interesting than the ones that appear on the last half of the record. The album also shows a lack of diversity, with only the beginning tracks having any of that flavor that Torche usually brings to the table. Now that I've talked about the negatives let's talk about some positives. The album as an whole as some very strong guitar work by lead singer Steve Brooks and Andrew Elstner. Every track has its guitar moments, which does give the album some points with me, even though some the tracks aren't that interesting like I said before. I especially like the guitar work on "Blasted". Steve Brooks' vocal work are also pretty solid, with the only problems being his slightly monotone vocals make some of the tracks feel a little bit monotonous, but that's just my opinion. Rick Smith's drums are also strong giving the tracks that needed power and Johnathan Nunez's bass playing is good as well.Overall, "Restarter" is a good Metal album that showcases some excellent guitarwork and overall solid instrumentation. The last half does leave the album feeling pretty underwhelming, but even those tracks are strong enough to pull plenty of people in. I'm just not one of them. I recommend this album to you if you are looking for a album that will help you get into this style of music. 7.8/10
