Torch  


Torch's 1982 EP pretty much came out of nowhere and generated a bit of buzz -- it wasn't fancy or complicated, just mean, down and dirty metal, quite heavy for 1982. The two full-length albums that followed didn't quite measure up, and they disappeared. Vocalist Dan Dark put together a new lineup for live shows and apparently are still at it.
