When it comes to metal, humor is a strange thing. Unless youre Spinal Tap, jokes make awkward bunkmates with so much aggressive behavior, but Athens sludge rockers Harvey Milk and the thunderously uplifting trio Torche (Atlanta/Miami) balance fiery songs with laconic humor that dovetails nicely with their respective sounds. But neither one of them are what you would call a typical metal band.
Torches guitarist/vocalist Steve Brooks doesnt even like using the term metal when talking about his bands sprawling, post-rock numbers. Metal is just something different altogether, although it is the gayest music around, he says before offering up a laundry list of what makes metal so gay: sweaty men wearing leather and long-hair, beating each other up and bro'ing down in the pit. Its very gay, he adds.

That was January of 2007, and they are 21 now, so I'm guessing 14?
