Torsades is an Atlanta-based band originally formed in 2003. The band plays original alternative rock music. The band is fronted by the sometimes ethereal and sometimes punchy female vocals of Rene. Their style is varied and ranges from upbeat acoustical to metal
Torsades takes its name from a French term referring to a twist or helix or a corded cable. It also refers to an unstable EKG pattern characterized by a twisting of the EKG complex around its baseline which can which render the heart to an excitable state and can suddenly and unpredictably degenerate to fibrillation and death.
So too, the music of Torsades rhythmically excites and unpredictably may degenerate to take on a dark and deep tone. Light and airy sounds may suddenly morph to dark ballads of despair. Torsades strives to send its audience through a twisted journey of spiraling highs and lows to peak the interest of their fans.
