Album Review: Tor – Too Happy (Truthseeker Music)

Truthseeker presents Tor’s latest full length, ‘Too Happy’ which will be released on vinyl and all digital platforms on May 25th 2018.

Tor 2

Soft doom-drenched melody with hefty focus on a lyrically dense critique on counter-culture, each track is part of a story being told. You’ll only know the next one has started playing by the small changes in tone.

The first real ‘oomph’ moment comes on I’m a Goth where the melancholic effort becomes a little harsher and heavier. It’s a brief change, though as the 7 tracker prefers to stay within a darker and more morose mood.

It’s unsettling but like all good nightmares you’re left analysing and thinking about it long afterwards. Tor have crafted a very unique listen, one that will stay with long after the misery has ended. The term ‘minimal miserabilism’ is a simply perfect way to describe Too Happy.
