With songs that move seamlessly from pensive and introspective to colossal and bludgeoning, Forwardhead’s memorable brand of metal is loaded with power, beauty and metaphor. Guitarist/vocalist Ron Turner, bassist Craig Tambascio and drummer Darren Wallach deliver the hearts, minds and souls of their songs with conviction.
Elevate is Forwardhead's debut album. The songs show a level of musicianship and ability that is atypical for a bands first release. Stand-out songs like the title track 'Elevate' and 'Through You" are heavy and melodic and 14³ is an odd time grinder and a live favorite. The album is full of melodic hooks, intricate vocal harmonies and impressive instrumental performances.
