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 Chevelle.

Biography

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 its 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 current acts like Breaking Benjamin, Chevelle and Lacuna Coil.
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 alt-metal music in America.
Forwardhead’s upcoming full-length release on Hard Volume Records, PIECES,
releases worldwide 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.
