Forced Order- Eternal War 7" review
Forced Order- Eternal War 7” review
It’s like youth crew breakdowns with metal riffs, periodically picking up the pace, but mostly remaining at mid-tempo or the slower end of a fast tempo. It’s a metal band with a bunch of breakdowns and a hardcore singer. The short lead breaks are indicative that these guys like early 90s death metal a lot, and it does add an element not usually seen in hardcore (at least the hardcore I’m listening to- word is death metal-core is the hot thing on the block right now). This is the kind of hardcore you circle pit and headbang to- 90s death metal riffs, a hardcore singer, plentiful breakdowns, and a lot of the fat of those death metal songs trimmed out, and for the better. Cyrus poses the question “Can you dig it?” to which I can easily answer “Yes”.
