BATTLEMASTER ‘Ghastly, Graven, Grimoireless’ LP – advance download, stream, pre-order

Jun 19 2020   

Today on Juneteenth, with bandcamp donating 100% of their share of sales to NAACP Legal Defense Fund, we felt it was a perfect time to make BATTLEMASTER’s new LP available in full and donate the proceeds to some organizations that we feel deeply about.

‘Ghastly, Graven, Grimoireless’ is available for advance download through the weekend with all proceeds being donated to Rise For Youth, a Virginia organization that focuses on community-based alternatives to youth incarceration.   Additionally, we have also made vinyl copies available for order, 50% of the profits from each sale will be donated to Black and Pink, a national abolitionist organization supporting LGBTQ and HIV-positive prisoners.

Forcefield will also be donating to support the Richmond Bail Fund. We will match every dime from this weekend’s digital sales and donate it to Richmond Bail Fund.  We strongly urge everyone to stand up for what is right.  There is only one side, you are for human rights or not.  BLACK LIVES MATTER!

BATTLEMASTER – ‘Ghastly, Graven & Grimoireless’ LP

Jun 05 2020   



I’m stoked BATTLEMASTER is fucking on vinyl!  I’m even more excited I’m involved.  From the homies’ mouths –


BATTLEMASTER has a new album, but our city’s on fire and so many
other cities around the world are too. People are rightfully outraged.
Black Lives Matter and they sure haven’t been treated that way. Systemic injustice and racism have far too long gone unchecked.
With fees being waived today on Bandcamp – We’d like to offer you
the track “Thaumaturgical Nonchalance” from our brand new album “Ghastly, Graven & Grimoireless” – paying whatever you want with all of the money being donated to Richmond Community Bail Fund (
The album comes out on Forcefield Records June 26th but until then
Thanks for always being amazing folks and continue the battle for what you believe in.

Aug 28 2019   

Super stoked to announce a return to putting out new material.  These first two LPs back couldn’t be more perfect pairing to align with how and why I started doing this.  From the get go the foundation of Forcefield was to release material (usually debuts) for my closest of friends, it pretty much became the most constant focal point of the label.  Knowing and loving what my friends were doing and making sure it got to see the light of day.  With all that said, first up is the debut LP from my Richmond, VA brothers VOARM.  Formed in early 2016, the band followed with a demo a handful of months later and set out on playing as much regionally as possible to craft their blend of black, death, and doom.  In the fall of 2018 once the band had formulated a proper and cohesive full length a tour was booked around a weekend at Jam Room Studio in Columbia, SC with engineer Jay Matheson.  Now a year later I am proud to announce its physical release to the world, VOARM’s debut ‘s/t’ 12″ LP will be released October 4th, 2019, pre-orders will ship September 20th.  The first track premiere “Invective Transcendence” comes courtesy of the most righteous homies at Cvlt Nation, in the form of a stellar video shot and edited by Richmond audio visual wizard JK.  Below that is the cover art (photo by Drew Storcks) with an embedded link to the pre-order and the bands current tour dates.
