TORCHIA is melodic death metal band from Tampere, Finland. The group headed almost straight away to record their first album. One demo and EP had already showed what Torchia's music was about. The debut album ”Of Curses and Grief” was recorded in 2017 with the legendary producer Hiili Hiilesmaa (HIM, Ensiferum, Sentenced, Amorphis) with the idea of organic, raw and timeless sound. The album was released on October 27th2017. Finland's biggest metal media/magazine Inferno picked the album as 7th best Finnish album of the year 2017 alongside with many praising reviews around the world.



The band released their second full-length album "The Coven" in March 2020. 

At the moment Torchia is working on their 3rd full-length album.

'MOON, RISE!' lyrics: I die every time I see the sunrise light the sky, disguise the shadows, expose all lies, torment and souls I believe in the cure of darkness I believe in the pale light that shines Fill me up with powers, dark light powers Show me tranquility, calm shiny harness Moon, rise! We dance together in the moonrise I feel the colors of the radiant orb in the sky fill my veins with magic and hope Now I dance to the ancient one, to the rhythm of her light Fill me up with powers, dark light powers Show me tranquility, calm shiny harness I’ve seen the far ends of sanity I wait until you rise and shine and empower me Moon, rise!
