FORCED are a Blackened Doom/Sludge/Hardcore Metal Band from Brooklyn, New York, USA
The members are:
Scott Brown - Vocals/Guitar
Dave Friedrich - Bass/Vocals
Mike Hegarty - Drums
Forced is a band who I featured back in Jan 2013 when I reviewed their last excellent release - Accused Share. Well those dark sludge metal overlords are back with the brilliant new release - Volume II.
And it's just as nasty, loud and heavy than their last release. Maybe even heavier. Forced don't hold back from unleashing their primal fury on an unsuspecting audience. First track - Sovereign - shows what the band are all about. Heavy as fuck riffs with the power to cause powerful damage to anything that shows it any disrespect. Scott is more pissed off than ever. Don't mess him as he will take you the fuck down!!!
Volume II is beginning to gain a lot of praise within the Sludge Metal scene and it's not hard to see why. The band have written some incredible dark heavy riffs to violently head-bang to. Check out The Black Blood Of Aeons and the brilliant 7:34 minute epic - Spirals.
Spirals is probably the finest track that Forced have written so far. It's a loud thunderous track full of power to cause you nightmares for the rest of your life. Plus the guys have included an excellent cover of the Discharge classic - The Nightmare Continues -cover for good measure. It ends the album on such a brilliant depressing note that you can't but help going back for more!!!
Lets hope Volume III isn't too far behind. Until then headover to BandCamp and download this on Buy Now Deal. You know the score. Download it now!!!!
Excellent and Highly Recommended.
