Hailing from the imperial Vienna, Torso are a groovy psychedelic band with an extra flavor. That extra is called voice. Yes, a screamy high-piched voice. I love the fact that both guitarists are yelling their soul on stage. They are calling out for Monalisa or taking introspective trips into obsessive tunes, building up a fire into your brain.They remind me of the Durango swedes. I've seen them 5 times and each one, it was like a brand new experience. They are getting better and weirder every time i hear them. They seem like a restless body of riff muscles and a backbone made of fat drums held together by a crawling Fender bass. They are a wild bunch, with delicious guitar solos. We had them for 3 times in Timisoara and each time the crowd was amazed. In the end i hope that the black man that haunts witches, can hear it's voice inside one Monalisa. https://www.facebook.com/torsomusic

Well i know this guys from their early days. When i first heard them, i was happy to see that we have fresh sound in our city. Young bloods with psychedelia in their minds.Their first release was a bit rushed and you could hear that they were searching. Hopefully that search didn't end. Their second release, starring two guitar players manage to sound interesting, dreamy and quite popular. Groovy riffs traveling through balanced rhythm and sweet delays, were filling my earphones for the first time i heard the album. It has a unique personality, types of songs which i am sure delighted stoner heads around the planet. Songs are built faster into their apex and then let to fade into the loud abyss.They escalate quickly and roar searching for recognition. They are a mud star ready to shine into the void from the enter to the exit of the album. It's a sonic adventure which i strongly recommend to be served with a stinky joint and a cold beer. I love their live performances, especially the way they improvise the tunes. It's a big step in their path, and i am sure that the best is yet to come.
It started a couple of years ago, after seeing great rock and roll gigs in Vienna, Budapest and Erdberg, we started to think that, with a lot of compassion and dedication to live music, we can start organizing cool gigs. We love music, and we love it a lot, and that is the driving force that made us who we are today. We just wanted to see cool bands playing in our hometown.True bands with soul and dedication to the realm of the blissful sound.Along the years we had psychedelic, stoner, alternative and mind blowing bands that we don't even know how to label, and that's the beauty of it.The more diverse and intriguing the better for our ears and thoughts. We made this so that we can all enjoy the live experience of loud music, for the waving pants and mesmerizing faces at the start of a cool tune. We all play music and we know what involves touring. With every gig we learned new and useful things and in the end we: Bren , Jess , Szilard and Vali, are ready to go down in the hearts of true music fans.From the booking part and logistics, to the sweet media memories, we are more than happy for making it happen. So far we did gigs with awesome bands like: My Sleeping Karma, Karma to Burn , Seven that Spells, Stonebride, Secret Chiefs 3 , A.P.P.A.T, Rozbub, Torso, Methadone Skies, Blight and The :Egocentrics.
Until next one, stay wild and rock free!
