Torchlight Parade is an American Heavy Metal Band founded by Matt & Doug Engel in the basement of a morgue in 2006 in Saint Louis, Missouri. The band's fast tempos,

precise instrumentals & aggressive musicianship complements every show.

Satisfying their rabid fans, who have quickly

cemented them as the band to see & experience.

Opening for top metal bands such as Alice Cooper's

daughter's band Beasto Blanco, Stryper, Metal Church, Faster Pussycat,

Enuff Z'Nuff, Bang Tango and Quiet Riot has been their honor. 


The Torch is being passed and forever burning.


Torchlight Parade's lineup is comprised of members who

by day, work in the mortuary industry and by night,

create sounds that echo throughout the city.

With over 25,000 mummified fans to date, there has been no complaints.


The primary songwriters are Matt "Torch" Engel on Vocals, Harmonica and Whip,

and his incredibly talented brother Doug Engel on Lead Guitar.

 Keeping the fire burning is TLP's longtime rhythm guitarist Danny Nichols,

bassist Larry Hunter & drummer Greg Umfleet.

On many occasions the wonderful talent of

JOHN FORD HIGHLANDER BAGPIPE BAND is added to the show and it;s also not uncommon to see St.Louis native and W.A.S.P alumi Johnny Rod show up at the show. .



A Rock & Soul Ceremony.
