New release from: E-FORCE – Mindbender (November 19, 2021)

Welcome to E-Force 5.0. “Provocation” is the first song released from the upcoming album of the band led by ex-Voivod vocalist/bassist Eric Forrest. It’s a fast, thrash attack, with the typical sci-fi sound and mood of E-Force. A great appetizer for the album Mindbender, to be released later this year.

“It’s a song about provocation… In a certain sense of relating to conspiracy, hypocrisy and, of course, mystery that can circulate in one’s life”, Eric laughs. “It has a black/thrash/punk vibe to it. It’s fast and ready to cause anarchy! So crank it up,  and let the destruction begin!”.

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. Three more albums were released in the following years, cementing E-Force as an entity to be reckoned with in the thrash scene.

Mindbender will 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.

Mindbender will be released in digital, CD, and LP by Mighty Music, in November 2021.
