As the current music scene continues to be marked by laziness and imitation, Forwardhead puts more thought and effort into the musical structure, content and composition of it's music than most bands put into their entire careers. Forwardhead is redefining the boundaries of alternative metal, combining haunting atmospherics, melodic hooks, metallic crunch and fearsome technical prowess. Couched in richly textured dynamics and paint-peeling heaviness, Forwardhead is reminiscent of alt-metal pioneers like Tool and Alice in Chains, along with acts like Chevelle and Disturbed. With songs that move seamlessly from pensive and introspective to colossal and bludgeoning, Forwardhead's memorable brand of alternative metal is loaded with power, beauty and metaphor. Guitarist/vocalist Ron Turner, bassist Craig Tambascio and drummer Darren Wallach step into the bodies, hearts and minds of the characters in their songs with a conviction that transcends anything and everything about the current state of music in America. Forwardhead's upcoming full-length release on Hard Volume Records, PIECES, releases WORLWIDE Tuesday May 1st. With stunning range, complex arrangements and piercing lyrics, PIECES proves what we at Hard Volume already know - that Forwardhead is truly a band to be reckoned with.
