"Bring on the Apocalypse" (Static; 2003)

Reviewed by Mike SOS

Forge, Michigan's metal stalwarts, return with their supercharged offering, "Bring on the Apocalypse." 

Meshing the slash-and-burn style of Megadeth with the stoic glory of bands like Manowar and Judas Priest, Forge's full-on metal delivery will undoubtedly encourage a barrage of horned hands. Evoking a no-nonsense approach and blistering through tracks like the stomping "Days of Destruction," the chugging riff-o-rama of "Parade of the Forgotten" and the effectively heavy closer "Departure," Forge steamroll through your ears without any questions asked. 

Forge succeeds in making the direct approach with in-your-face and amped-up-to-10 guitars, drums, bass, and vocals; a style no longer just for bands like Godsmack and Soil

Rating Guide:

A classic. This record will kick your ass.

Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.

So-so. You've heard better.

Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.

Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
