Finnish death metallers TORCHIA have just inked a record deal with ROCKSHOTS RECORDS for the release of their sophomore album 'The Coven', coming out next March 27th.
Arising from the inner darkness of composer and lyricist Ville Riitamaa, TORCHIA takes inspiration from a multitude of metal subgenres and their mission is to revitalize the genre of melodic death metal by bringing in a sense of danger and unpredictability.
The first single 'Moon, Rise!' was released last September and the official video is available on YouTube at the following link:
Guitarist and songwriter Ville Riitamaa comments about the new album:
"We managed to gather a versatile compilation of stories to the album without extending the full length too much. The lyrical spirit lingers in a witch-like, melancholic environment which of you can get a good glimpse by skimming through the album art from cover to cover. The compositions’ riffs, melodies and moods echo in a controlled chaos without sharing any mercy. In the end we have a circle of metal and magick: The Coven, stories from the dark."
'The Coven' is now available for pre-order at the Rockshots Records' official store: http://bit.ly/Torchia_PREORDER
