E-Force

Always striving to gather a relevant and talented group of names in it’s catalog, Mighty Music is extremely proud to announce the enlistment of E-FORCE, the band led by ex-Voivod vocalist/bassist Eric Forrest, into its ranks. The first release under this partnership was E-Force’s fifth studio album, “Mindbender”, released on November 19th, 2021.

Forrest comments: “Very proud to announce the fact that the new E-Force “Mindbender” release will be a collaboration/cooperation with Mighty Music. This shit is going to kill you! Impulsive E-Force trademarks, with a side-order of Voivod! This dosage of mayhem is going to fuck you up! Not to mention, a hidden treasure… “Insect 2021”! Beware…“.

E-Force was formed in Montreal, Canada in 2001 by vocalist/bassist, Eric Forrest, upon his departure from the legendary Canadian cyber metallers Voivod. In all Eric appeared on two studio masterpieces, “Negatron” and “Phobos”, on the live album, “Voivod Lives” and on the compilation: “Kronik”. When leaving Voivod, Forrest used his nickname, “E-Force”, as the name for his new band.

Labeled monsters of thrash, Eric Forrest’s wide array of musical influences and vocal capabilities set E-Force apart from the pack and ensure that this band is very original. E-Force released their debut album “Evil Forces” to widespread critical acclaim in 2003. Soon after Forrest relocated to France, resulting in a line-up change.

In 2008, E-Force released their follow-up, “Modified Poison”. The album further expanded the intensity of the band, impressing both fans and critics alike.

In 2014 the band released their third album “The Curse”, on Mausoleum Records. “Curse” was a concept album based on a collection of songs describing the power and temptation of, and obsession with the female race.

The fourth album was released in 2015 on Mausoleum Records: “Demonikhol”, lyrically another concept album with alcohol as the subject matter, illustrating the ravages and destruction of all kinds it is capable of causing. Musically E-Force has become an intense and shatteringly percussive killing machine, driven by battering ram guitars, supporting Eric’s primal screaming vocal assault.

In 2017, to celebrate the anniversary of Voivod’s legendary album “Phobos”, Forrest led a European tour performing songs from “Negatron” and “Phobos” albums by Voivod. The band assembled for that tour was operating under the name “E-Force Performing Voivod”. In 2018 the tour achieved by participating to the “Brutal Assault” festival (Czech Republic).

Throughout the band’s 20 years career (performing in 20 countries, 250+ shows and several festival appearances) as well as some guests on different E-Force albums (Glen Drover, Kristian Niemann, to name a few), Eric will now return with the opus “Mindbender”, released in 2021 on Mighty Music records and involving the “E-Force Performing Voivod” line-up: Patrick Friedrich on drums and Sébastien Chiffot on guitars. “Mindbender” will still be in the catchy vein characterizing the E-Force style, but will also add slower tempos parts and particular ambiences, making the connection with Eric’s venture as a cult member of Voivod.

LIV SIN

Back in 2016 vocalist Liv Jagrell, known worldwide as the frontwoman for Sister Sin, let the music world know that she had formed a new band. LIV SIN, driven by massive guitar riffs and a heavy modern metal sound released their debut album “Follow Me” in 2017. Their second album, “Burning Sermons” was released in 2019. Both albums spawned multiple popular singles such as “Let me Out” and “Blood Moon Fever”.

Fast forward to 2023, after a two-year down period and revamped line-up, LiV SiN is now completely recharged and ready to hit the stages again. Not forgetting the record shops’ racks, with their new album, “KaliYuga”. “KaliYuga” referring to the fourth of the four “Yugas” in Hinduism, the era precisely dedicated to the present age, full of conflict and… sin. The theme of Kali Yuga was also reflected in the album’s writing process.

“Since we produced this album ourselves, we definitely tried out a lot of new things, and I confess, I went a bit crazy with the vocals in certain parts”, Liv declares.

Musically, “KaliYuga” is LiV SiN, on steroids! Jagrell explains how the creative process developed into an energetic and varied set of songs: “We took influences from everywhere, from newer metal acts such as Architects, Parkway Drive to vocal inspiration from King Diamond. I am ecstatic with the outcome”.

With such an album in hands, LiV SiN could only pick a production team that would do justice to the songs. Simon Johansson (from Wolf and Memory Garden fame) and Mike Wead (King Diamond and Mercyful Fate axeman) were summoned to record the album, while the mix and mastering duties were delivered to console-wizard Tue Madsen (Witchery, The Haunted, At The Gates, etc). A winning team for a strong and cohesive album that will for sure kick off 2023 in a true heavy way.

“KaliYuga” is out now on digital, digipack CD and LP (black vinyl, limited to 500 units).

Line-up:

Per Bjevoluk – drums
Patrick Ankermark – guitars
Liv Jagrell – vocals
Daniel Skoglund – bass
Jay Matharu – lead guitar

Timechild

ABOUT

Timechild  is massive and organic heavy rock from Copenhagen, Denmark. The band’s soundscape is made up of a powerful and present lead vocal, characteristic twin guitars and atmospheric vocal harmonies, which together create their unique Scandinavian expression.

Timechild was formed in 2020 by four seasoned musicians from different corners of Denmark. With extensive past experience in a number of former and existing Danish rock and metal bands, the members had already crossed paths on both Danish and international stages. When the opportunity arose, they decided to unite their musical experiences and visions and created Timechild.

The debut album was written and recorded during the worldwide Covid-19 pandemic, which paralysed the Danish and international music industry. However, this silence gave the band time to jointly develop their common sound and expression. The vision from the start was to show how heavy rock can continue to challenge and surprise audiences even in 2021. Although the foundation of the band’s sound universe is clearly laid by the rock giants of the past, Timechild’s inspiration is drawn from across both time and genres. The opportunity to dive into the music history of past decades, and through this define one’s own sound, is one of the greatest privileges that today’s musicians have at their disposal. We can learn from the past without being backward-looking or unoriginal and we can be relevant and innovative without having to define a new genre.

This same mindset also applies to Timechild’s lyrics. The title of the upcoming debut album “And Yet It Moves” is, according to legend, the last phrase uttered by physicist and philosopher Galileo Galilei after the Vatican forced him to recant his scientific belief, that the Earth moves around the sun and not the other way around. It is precisely this human search for the purpose of our own existence and the struggle to elevate ourselves above the laws of nature, that are recurring themes in the album’s textual universe.

The record is produced, mixed and mastered by Soren Andersen (Glenn Hughes, Jesper Binzer, Thundermother, Marco Mendoza, Artillery). With his vast experience in the genre, both as a producer and musician, Soren was a natural choice when the band’s songs were to be immortalised. The result is nine songs that show the band’s broad dynamic range. From quiet, dark and melodic passages to over-marching twin guitars and energetic heavy rock. With “And Yet it Moves”, Timechild is ready to wow audiences with their expression of heavy rock anno 2021.

Timechild’s debut album, “And Yet It Moves”, was released on November 12th 2021.

Killing

ABOUT

From east Jutland Denmark, comes the aggressive and vicious monster of energy Killing. Formed late 2013, with the sole purpose of writing uncompromising thrash metal, as in the good old days. Inspiration is drawn from the golden era of the genre, where bands like Slayer, Exodus, Kreator, and Metallica ruled the stage with an iron fist.

After years of concerts and songwriting, they released 2018s critically acclaimed EP “Toxic Asylum”, which was followed by a longer tour around northern Europe. The following year, the single “Raise Your Anger” was released, which was followed by a long series of festival performances.

The many shows has proven their worth, as the east Jutland quartet on stage, create an intense and engaging vibe, that echoes long after the lights go out. Due to Covid, the winter/spring tour of 2020 had to be cancelled. This meant the band could focus their strength towards recording their debut album. Which was completed autumn 2020 with Jacob Bredahl in Dead Rat Studio.

Early 2021 Killing signed a contract with Mighty Music, who will release the album “Face The Madness” on August 13 2021.
