Vorcha is an instrumental rock band from Austin, TX consisting of Michael on guitar, Adam on bass, and Brock on drums. Formed in late 2012 by former members of metal and hardcore bands, they bring that heaviness into their unique take on post-rock. Using complex layers of melodic guitar loops and a powerful rhythm section, this three-piece is able to create a wall of sound you might expect from a five or six-member band.

Fun Facts:
Brock was once arrested by police outside his home after being picked out of a lineup by an assault victim. Claiming an assault took place on a person he's never met, in a town he's never been in, his accuser said he went by the name "Larry Corvix". This later became the name of the second song on the first Vorcha EP. He was quickly cleared with no explanation or apology.
