Torchia releases new single and music video “La Magra”

Finnish melodic death metal necromancers Torchia release a new song “La Magra” with a striking music video. The song is the first single from the band’s upcoming third album.

“La Magra” is a soul-ripping remedy found in evil and misery. For such a spiteful story, a touch of the melancholy of Finnish language was definitely needed. When it comes to the composition, the song is an unprecedentedly nasty Torchia tune, and the main riff takes no prisoners – without forgetting melody, guitarist Ville Riitamaa elaborates.

The sinister music video, typical of Torchia, was produced in collaboration with Obliviart Productions. The video uses CGI graphics, which is a whole new element for the band.

“When we started writing the script, I soon realized that we are about go beyond this reality. The story of the song was simply crying for visual effects. The end result takes the viewer to another world”, says vocalist Edward Torchia.

The band’s third album will be released later in the autumn. The album is a sequel to the widely acclaimed “Of Curses and Grief” and “The Coven”.

Torchia take to the stage next time on 10th of February at the legendary Yo-talo in their hometown Tampere with the warm-up acts Anzillu and Sirkuit Preiker.
