FORCENTURY “Revelant”

FORCENTURY
“Revelant”
(Mighty Music)
OK I’ll admit that the band’s name makes me think of the old Seattle band Forced Entry and the thrash metal that they played but that is as far as it goes. I haven’t heard of this band before so it is with some trepidation that I take them on. It could turn out to be anything from really good to some of the worst. Musically this is heavy metal with a rather high pitched vocalist. Perhaps a bit borderline power metal. For some reason it made me think of a cross between German Angel Dust and Italian symphonic metal. No matter what it reminds me of I like it. Perhaps I found it a bit too chaotic for my ears, well at least the first track, before I got accustomed to the sound. This is the kind of heavy metal that might seem shallow if you don’t lend it your ears full out. If you do you’ll find that there is a depth to this album. I haven’t heard this kind of metal in a long time. Didn’t know I missed it until this album dropped in on me. Anders Ekdahl
