Italian heavy rockers SLOWTORCH deliver their barrage of driving riffs, pounding drums, throbbing bass lines and roaring vocals with a straightforward, no-bullshit attitude, effortlessly blending 70s rock and blues into their gritty metal.

Think Clutch meets Black Sabbath meets Corrosion of Conformity.

SLOWTORCH have played shows all over Europe and the UK, sharing the stage with Orange Goblin, Mondo Generator, Karma To Burn, Fatso Jetson and Volbeat, among many others.

2017 looks like a promising year for the band, with more shows in Europe and the UK lined up and new material in the works.

SERPENTE, the band's latest release is currently available on all major online platforms.

Press

"[T]he band rocks like a swinging udder. Really a band which will get everyone in a small venue to move and dance."
Marcel H. - Lords of Metal (NL)

“Una band che non ha nulla da invidiare a tante realtà straniere ben più blasonate.”
Emiliano Witchcraft Sammarco - Doommabbestia - Doom'n'Heavy Psych Webzine (IT)

“SLOWTORCH are from Bolzano and exist since 2005… I am surprised I never heard of them before, because they have already scored another 3 albums and took part in an important series of tours throughout Europe: mysteries of the digital age that make you be acknowledged about an Aussie combo and not of a band that is just 400 miles away from your home. Anyway…”Snake” is a great stoner/metal album, tough and incisive like only Clutch mange to be…and in facts, the band from Maryland is officially mentioned as a main influence… 11 tracks to be put into your hi-fi player to test the strength of the speakers…”
Vincepus Eruptum / Heavy - Psych Music Webzine
