Listen to music from TORIZON

“Hey You” explores a topic that is almost tabooed in our current global political climate – the pitfalls and hypocrisy of religion. The track tackles this complex issue head-on, offering some frank insights underpinned by painful personal experiences. Said vocalist Mish of the track, “I drew inspiration for this song from my upbringing. I started seeing loopholes in the strict religious beliefs and their followers at a very young age. I was sexually abused and relentlessly bullied by people in a position of power within these religious institutions for a number of years. Everyone knew but no one said a word or tried to help as they were bound by their belief of salvation after death by their god. I have long overcome that trauma but there is one thing that stayed with me: the idea that people can do horrible things to each other – controlling, manipulating and abusing each other – and hide it behind their fears of eternal punishment. The lyrics talk about finding “Your Own Light” and being your true self, you don’t have to conform to others who tell you who to be just to fit in or out of fear. Trust yourself – you are worth more than living your life controlled by a bunch of rules written hundreds of years ago.”

Torizon are a heavy rock band based in Brisbane offering a unique blend of groove, progressive and heavy rock music. We just released four stand-alone singles “Falling”, “Shine On”, “Immerse” and “Hey You” which were produced by Robb Torres (Robbery Inc & ex Trapt) and Capitol Records. These singles showcase our signature heavy rock sound that expertly interweaves raw and emotive melodies with heavy-hitting groove. Although the band members are veterans in music industry, this project is relatively new – so far we have performed alongside many established Australian Acts which include Darkcell, These Four Walls, Flynn Effect, The Stranger as well as festivals such as Wallapalooza. With new music already in the works, we will be heading to LA to record their debut album in 2020 – this album will be more along the lines of heavy progressive rock with influences from Karnivool, COG, Plini, Sevendust and the likes.
