Forced are a blackened sludge/hardcore band out of Long Island NY. The band has drawn comparison and inspiration from bands like Coffinworm, Cursed, and Craft. They have been self-releasing demos and cassettes for the past few years and have just put out their first full length album titled "The Vanishing Dark" which was recorded by Jay Newman (Unearthly Trance) at his home studio. the band describes the release as "In the record, we focus on the notion that in a world full of artifice, of living in cities, the very human experience of looking to the sky at night and seeing the stars is no longer possible, at least for the vast majority of humanity. We have flooded the world with light as a means to do a lot of things, not the least of which to, literally and figuratively, blind us to the dark of the unknown, to blind us from the reality of our fear. Yet, in doing so we create monsters and catastrophes of geologic proportions. The cruel irony of light is that it is not as a source of redemption or hope, but a visual representation of fear itself." Currently the record is available to stream or download for free via bandcamp. The track "Lung Float Test" features Will from Artificial Brain on vocals.
Scott Brown - Vocals/Guitar
Dave Friedrich - Bass/Vocals

Waves Crashing Piano Chords is a Juggalo Power Electronics or "Horrornoise" solo artist from Rochester, New York formed in 2005. Sean originally would do sporadically guerrilla styled unannounced performances in the middle of other band's sets much to their annoyances until he pushed his project to be vastly more serious. His live shows although minimalistic in nature are loud & violent with every appearance being a one man war against the crowd challenging any and all with fists, anger and faygo bottles flying in the air. This 7+ minute single is a brief glimpse into his harsh feedback riddled world and it's free via download on bandcamp (along with a bunch of other releases) and released on single sided 7"s. Sean Also runs the 8track record label H8-Track Stereo and has another noise project called Useless Prick
