CD Reviews

How I Spent My Summer Vacation...

"This album is a classic, a must-have for any old school thrash lovers. I've been listening to metal/thrash since I was 9, and I must say, this is one of those albums that I could never forget. Many come and go in metal... Many have short stays that go unremembered. This album will never die."
Another great Thrash album by Seattle's best ignored!

"After Uncertain Future in '89, I was just drooling for the next Forced Entry album to come out. This album, while not as good as the former album, boosts a better production and a great set of catchy songs.

The song writing on this album is a little more complex but still has the thunderous bass and strange mini-solos signature to this band.

While Uncertain Future had lyrics about sea monsters and stuff, this album boasts a more humorous side of the band. Songs like "We're D*cks" and "How we spent our summer vacation" are actually pretty hilarious. I use the former whenever I break up with a girlfriend.

Alas the trio from Mountlake Terrace came at the right time to the scene (and not a moment too soon), but since this came out in mid '91 and Seattle's alternative music scene was garnering attention by early '92, this album had a short shelf life. Most metalheads just went to the burgeoning Death metal scene at the time and everyone else went to alternative or hip-hop...then Thrash was really dead.

About four years ago these guys played a show in Olympia, maybe they'll record something new. I heavily recommend all the Forced Entry albums to any fan of true thrash. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!"

"Forced Entry breaks the barriers of what mosh music is about. They are one of the true pioneers and deserve more credit then they received. As one of the innovative bands of hard core metal they should have been recognized and ranked in the likes of Slayer, Testament, and Anthrax as one of the leading metal bands. Point is they got robbed and they are great. I have been a hard core metal fan and recognize talent and these guys are way up there in my opinion with great guitar riffs and songs that melt your soul. Forced Entry is one of the most unrecognizable bands of our time which is shame because too put it simply they are great and deserve stardom. They will melt your face and if you buy their album you will not be disappointed because the riffs rock and the bass and drums will make want to mosh."
