Featuring Deen Dell (bass/back. vocals) and Phil Demmel (vocals/guitars), two ex members of Thrash band Vio-lence, Torque came across as mixing more traditional early-nineties Thrash with a more contemporary feel of acts like Pantera. Though not revolutionary, the pair with Ray Vegas (vocals/guitar) and Mark Hernandez (drums/back. vocals) would play with aggression and conviction to release Torque in 1996. Demmel and Hernandez were later seen in Technocracy, and after that Demmel was also seen with his friend Robb Flynn in Machine Head.
