Pasting from the band’s MySpace page:

Unfortunately the Torch has called it quits for now, we are all on good terms but felt that it was time to move on. Keep an ear out for various side projects etc, we all have plans to continue the rock in different forms so just hold tight.

Cracktorch formed in 1996 as a side project for Quintaine Americana (Roadrunner Records) bassist Marc Schleicher and The Vehicle Birth (crank! Records) guitarist Chris Jackson. Cracktorch soon became full time as they found themselves playing with heavyweights Queens of the Stone Age, Mission of Burma and the Murder City Devils. Based on their sonic live show, Cracktorch was selected as a wild card in the 2001 WBCN Rock & Roll Rumble. The band breezed through to the finals converting the press and hundreds of fans along the way. Their album, "Cracktorch …is not the problem" (Curve Of The Earth Records) received critical acclaim including 6 Nominations at the 2002 Boston Music Awards and taking home the award for “Best Hard Rock Band of the Year”. The album “…is not the problem” was subsequently licensed to Lunasound Recordings (Supersuckers,Roadsaw) for worldwide distribution. Recording sessions soon began to fulfill numerous compilation requests, most notably with Paul Q. Kolderie (Radiohead, Pixies, Hole). The year was rounded out road testing material for a new album & was chosen to appear in a nationwide ad campaign for Sure Microphones. In 2003 Cracktorch recorded their follow-up album, “Tonight The City”, with Grammy Award nominated producer Andrew Schneider (Cave In, Blue Man Group). Through stubborn resourcefulness and DIY attitude, Cracktorch will not take no for an answer.

Slash – Paradise City (live at MTV Clasic Launch – Melbourne 2010)

|

My guitar God, up close and loud. This was a complete surprise for me, I knew that Slash was in town and I tried the impossible so I could go see him, but then I heard it was a private show with limited VIP tickets which were already given to the media people. I lost merely all hope until my best friend in Australia called me and told me over the phone: dude, guess what? you’re so obsessed and love that Slash guitar guy so much it annoys me, so I called a friend of mine, told him your story (over live radio) and got you 4 tickets for tonight’s show. I then ran home to change my crapped underwear, grabbed my camera and struggled my way to the front of the stage. One of the best nights in my life. I now can die, happy 🙂 ***Thank you Andrew Lee Gung, you rock man!

Paradise Lost Part 1

|

On May 5, 1993, three eight-year-old boys in West Memphis, Arkansas, didn’t come home. They were later found brutally murdered. Jessie Misskelley, Damien Echols and Jason Baldwin would be singled out for blame for the crime, mostly because they listen to heavy metal music. They would become known as the West Memphis Three. Produced by Joe Berlinger and Bruce Sinofsky, Paradise Lost explores the arrest and trial of the three.
