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.

BUZZARD DUST to release debut LP this fall!

Sep 07 2017   

Super stoked to announce the release of debut LP of Richmond’s BUZZARD DUST!

A mangled mess of raw energy and pounding eardrums; this fall will see the debut full length from thrashing hardcore punk quintet BUZZARD DUST.  While relatively young forming in 2015 this Richmond, VA outfit have been cutting their teeth individually for the better part of a decade plus. A varied past with members spanning the spectrum of heavy, from black metal acts; UNSACRED and KREIG; to weirdo-avant metalcore acts; PSYOPUS, THE HUMAN TIMEBOMB, and THE JEFFERSON PLANE CRASH; to more direct punk hardcore of TRI-STATE KILLING SPREE.  An onslaught of break-neck speed paired with gut-tangling riffs, BUZZARD DUST creates a slight amalgamation of each members’ past endeavors but never enough to sway off the main goal of a vicious hardcore punk assault.

BUZZARD DUST’s debut effort was recorded the spring of 2017 at the Ward Studios in Richmond VA by Ricky Olson (UNSACRED, PRISONER) with mastering handled by Carl Saff.  All art courtesy of Richmond comic veteran James “Barf” Callahan.  BUZZARD DUST are set to unveil their debut record  October 13th.  To celebrate the band will be holding a record release show the following day at Strange Matter with multiple East Coast jaunts to follow in November.
