Rockshots Records: TORCHIA Unleash New Single “Memoirs”; New Album “The Coven” Out March 27

Finnish death metallers TORCHIA have unleashed their next single ‘Memoirs’, off their forthcoming sophomore album “The Coven” due out March 27th via ROCKSHOTS RECORDS.

The track is now available for stream and download at the following links:

Spotify –
Apple Music (immediate download) –

Edward Torchia comments about the track: “‘Memoirs’ presents TORCHIA at our very core. I think the signature melody of this song is one of the most memorable our guitarist Ville Riitamaa has ever written, and I love the fact that he paired it with an onslaught of death/thrash riffs. In a way, I feel ’Memoirs’ is a hybrid between ’Fury’ and ’Face of Hate’, two of the most popular songs from TORCHIA’s debut album. Lyrically, it’s a story of black magic, betrayal, and of course, death.”

Arising from the inner darkness of composer and lyricist Ville Riitamaa, TORCHIA takes inspiration from a multitude of metal subgenres and their mission is to revitalize the genre of melodic death metal by bringing in a sense of danger and unpredictability.

“The Coven” is now available for pre-order at the Rockshots Records‘ official store –
