Torche April 7 at Churchill's Pub

With Torche's latest album, Harmonicraft, the sort-of-local trio continues to move further and further away from the metalish sounds that defined its earliest material. If anything, Harmonicraft is as close to pure distorted guitar pop as the band has ever been, full of sing-along choruses and even — perhaps distressingly for metal diehards — major keys! That's not to say they aren't still heavy, though — it just comes from an overall volume and distortion level rather than strict subgenre conventions. That doesn't mean they don't still blend well with openers who ply more specifically droning or metal trades. For this show at Churchill's, familiar favorite faces come out: the vaguely hardcore-influenced Consular and instrumental duo Holly Hunt, right before the latter leaves on its first tour.
