Latest Bands I've Heard

I just recently was introduced to this band Torche. Someone burned me a copy of this album In Return (2007), and Meanderthal (2008). I was pretty dam impresses since I haven't been hearing many good new bands latley(if anyone knows any let me know). If you're into the heavy shit then you should love this album. Their music to me is a combo of different rock sub-genres; stoner rock, heavy metal, drone/doom, sludge metal, and some punk rock elements. A bunch of their songs remind me of old Melvins songs; the low tuning of the guitars, off time rhythums, the deep thud of the drums, and the sorta gritty, dirty sounding vocals. They've taken a bit of that style but still manage to make it their own.
