Brisbane hard rock/heavy outfit Torizon have started the year in style with the release of their latest single “Burning Away”
After teasing fans of their potential with their EP Singles Collection, Torizon have ramped up everything with their new song, a powerhouse of unbridled heavy metal ferocity that is easily the bands heaviest offering yet.
Vocalist and bundle of joy Mish Sharma caught up with HEAVY on the eve of the single release to talk about Torizon’s heavier direction on “Burning Away” and more.
“It’s hot – pun intended,” she laughed. “It is by far, I would say, one of the heavier songs we have written, which is gonna be a bit of a surprise for people that like us. I am absolutely in love with it. It took us about six or seven months to finish this song but the initial emotion of it came to me when the bushfire crisis happened and everything felt so displaced. Something wasn’t right in a sense of why are we not handling it? I saw all of the people put time and money in to raise funds and then COVID hit and all of the creative people were thrown to the side; it’s not a viable path or whatever, so the song took on a dual meaning for me so that’s why you hear me very angry. Musically it’s a good combination… you can really see what the new Torizon direction is. It’s got elements of Gojira, it’s got elements of TesseracT, my favourite band Evanescence and my teenage dream of rap up vocals… it’s got everything, it’s intense and in your face. It does not stop.”
In the full interview, Mish talks more about “Burning Away”, the bands heavier direction and how far they will take it, the film clip, the bands early vision and how COVID has changed it, their unique sound and more.
