OVERDRIVE MAG REVIEW - Fozzy at Max Watt's

November 10, 2018




"Opening up the night was Torrential Thrill and after having reviewed their second album ‘Nothing As It Seems’, this reviewer was most excited to see their name on the bill. Those who had made the trek down early were treated to a very tight, professional thirty minute set consisting of six songs. Chris Malcher (Lead Vocals/Rhythm Guitar), Steve Morrell (Lead Guitar/Backing Vocals), Matt Morrell (Drums) and Steve ‘Knox’ Boyd (Bass/Gang Vocals) let their music do all the talking, which showed as those in attendance were head-banging along from the opening chord of opening track Mars!

Keeping the momentum flowing, Hail Mary flowed paved the way for third song of the set Not My President being dedicated to “the orange Cheeto in the White House”, before those in attendance were treated to Torrential Thrill’s first ever single King of the Road. Closing their set out with Waking The Neighbours and Human Zoo, Torrential Thrill showed that good old fashioned Aussie rock is still alive and kicking!"

WALL OF SOUND INTERVIEW - Chris 'Malks' Malcher

March 2, 2018

"​In a country dominated by a rising market of hard/metalcore bands who are absolutely dominating right now, it’s refreshing to catch a glimpse of other bands with different sounds making their mark on the heavy music world. Torrential Thrill are a band of misfits from Melbourne hellbent on making a positive change on the world and luckily for them, they’ve got the talent and backing to make this happen.

Known for their high energy and humorous live shows, the guys are about to embark on a much more serious path with the release of their new single/video; the title track from their latest album Nothing As It Seems.

We grabbed frontman/rhythm guitarist Chris ‘Malks’ Malcher to find out more for those, not in the know of the Thrills they’re missing out on…"

"​Melbourne’s own Torrential Thrill is making a statement once again with the release of their second album!

Chris Malcher (Lead Vocals, Rhythm Guitar), Steve Morrell (Lead/Rhythm Guitar, Backing Vocals), Matt Morrell (Drums) and Steve ‘Knox’ Boyd (Bass, Gang Vocals) had been hard at work for eighteen months to create Nothing As It Seems; the hard work that these four put into the album is evident! Being produced by Matt D’Arcy at Basin Records, Nothing As It Seems is a beautiful album from start to finish; this eleven track, forty-six minute album is filled with classic riffs and thumping bass/drums which bring back memories of rock anthems from the 80’s."

"​In all honesty, I hadn't really heard much of Torrential Thrill until their sophomore album, Nothing As It Seems, came skidding through my email. The follow up to 2015's Mars, Nothing As It Seems took me a few listens before I felt like I could actually sit down and write a review of it. That's not because it was bad, but because it took so many twists and turns that I felt like I needed to really listen to it a few times to really appreciate it - it's definitely an album that'll grow on you the more you listen to it.


Torrential Thrill have really nailed this album, delivering an exciting and interesting hard rock album. With each listen, you'll find something new to like about them, whether it's a new hook that'll get stuck in your head, or a new solo that'll have you playing the air guitar with the best of them. I'd highly recommend picking up a copy of Nothing As It Seems."

"​I have had the hardest time coming up with a review for Torrential Thrill‘s new album Nothing As It Seems, because pun intended, it does not seem like anything that I have heard before. Frankly, that’s a great thing. Originality in music in this day and age is a hard thing to do. In a way, it reminds me a bit of former Metallica bassist Jason Newsted‘s band Newsted — not in sound similarities because Torrential Thrill sound very different than Newsted — but in the way that both seem to have come up with music that seems to forge a new path.


Torrential Thrill‘s Nothing As It Seems is an album that you’ll likely grow to appreciate the more you listen to it because it has so many layers to it."

"​Weld together the high octane sex sleaze of prime era Motley Crue with the nuts and bolts arena pub sound of AC/DC, and detail this rawk machine with a hint of post grunge darkness, and you’ve got Torrential Thrill’s second album.

The Melbourne foursome produced an excellent debut two years ago with Mars, and they’ve followed it up in fine style with this rocking set.


Torrential Thrill are doing what many thought was impossible: proving that there IS a new wave of talented Aussie rock bands waiting to break out. It’s time you gave them and their ilk a chance to show you what they’re made of."

"​The album starts with an interesting spoken word piece called 'The Firm' and quickly moves on to the title track which is a rocking opener with an infectious chorus. Torrential Thrill's sound is very reminiscent of fellow Aussies Airbourne and AC/DC.


The band are reasonably talented musicians who, in my opinion, are a slightly better than average pub band. I can imagine them going down a storm on a Friday night in some sweatbox of a bar somewhere but as far as anything else goes I honestly can't see Torrential Thrill getting anywhere else at this point in their career."
