Ending Beginning

Rated 3.5/5 (70%) (4 Votes)

Finnish melodic Death Metallers Torchia formed in 2010 and this second three-track EP is much better musically compared to their debut EP, oNe.

All three songs on this EP are good. Just give the title track a listen. Even if it starts off with a somewhat typical pedal-to-the-metal attempt to throw a bucketful of ice-cold water in our faces, somewhere in the middle of the song we are treated to the band's ability to use a bit more progressive sounding gear, which only does good to the song's overall nature. The second song, "My Land Shall Burn", is the EP's heaviest number and absolutely one of heaviest songs that Torchia has ever penned down. A mid-tempo song spiced with totally crunchy and tasty crushing riff fests, something that you can hear on some Hypocrisy or Amon Amarth albums. Killer song all in all and definitely my personal favorite off this EP. The last song, "They Haunt Behind Us", is very straightforward and up-tempo with a nice Bodom-esque feel to it, especially due to the gang shouts that are all over the place. In addition to everything else that they have brought into the daylight here, the amount of pure Thrash riffs that they squeezed into this little tornado just cannot be ignored.
