Review: Throne Torcher, The Mechanics of a Nightmare (Self-Released, 2020)

'Winnipeg trio Throne Torcher just released their new LP, The Mechanics of a Nightmare, last week.

The sound is a well-crafted blend of metallic hardcore and noise rock, with elements of ambient creeping in around the edges.'

 Throne Torcher - Mechanics Of A Nightmare (Music Video Reaction / Commentary)

'Hardcore / Post-Hardcore band Throne Torcher made an entire horror short film to go along with their new album 'Mechanics Of A Nightmare.' Check out some of the highlights of this high quality madness'

Album Stream: Throne Torcher’s The Mechanics of a Nightmare Builds Bad Dreams

'Witness the killer mash up of old Mastodon, the technical angularity of Botch and Converge, the crushing melodic thunder of Floor, Rising and Cavity and how they steep the entire mess in a piping hot cup of noise rock.'

Stream Throne Torcher’s heavy, genre-defying new LP ‘The Mechanics Of A Nightmare’

'Winnipeg trio Throne Torcher have been around for almost a decade (they used to be called Terrorist, but according to their bio, that was "changed after cops tried to raid the band’s apartment when their merch order was sent to 'TERRORIST HQ'"), and they make genre-defying music that manages to be both experimental and accessible, while also remaining furiously heavy. Their upcoming album The Mechanics of a Nightmare fuses elements of sludge, thrash, post-rock, noise, prog, hardcore, and more, and the whole thing is a totally wild ride.'

WITCHPOLICE RADIO

'This episode is a remote conversation with all three fellas from local crunchmongers (I just made that up) Throne Torcher)!

We talk about their excellent new record, the legitimately terrifying short film that accompanies it, getting past their former name (Terrorist), and much more.'

“Despair Orgy” – noise hardcore trio THRONE TORCHER premiere new song; share inspirations

'Throne Torcher’s combination of raw, violent aggression and progressive, technical instrumentation has made them a cult favourite in heavy music circles. With a new record and an accompanying, self-produced horror film (shot in an abandoned Manitoba sanitarium), the trio is set to re-emerge on the scene after years of self-imposed studio exile with this bizarre and grim descent into decadence and self annihilation.'

Throne Torcher: Winnipeg Crushers Blow Minds on “Cadaver Dogs” (PREMIERE)

'Let's just start off with the fact that Throne Torcher is a great band name. I mean, come on. 

The Winnipeg trio formed a decade ago, and if you're into the rolling thunder arrangements favored by such band as Mastodon and Kylesa, plus the twisted metallic hardcore the likes of Burnt by the Sun and Curl Up and Die are known for, you'll love what Throne Torcher is doing.'

METAL INJECTION

THRONE TORCHER Premieres Self-Produced Horror Film & "The Mechanics Of A Nightmare"

'Throne Torcher didn't just want to release their new song "The Mechanics of a Nightmare" without a little horrifying bombast. So they filmed an 18-minute long self-produced horror film shot in an abandoned Manitoba sanitarium to go along with it. Both the film and the music are unsettling as all hell, so mission accomplished in a pretty big way.'
