Former VOIVOD bassist/vocalist Eric Forrest's France-based E-FORCE band will play several shows in Canada at the end of November, including a support slot with SACRIFICE on November 21 at the Opera House in Toronto, Ontario.
E-FORCE's lineup for the Canadian dates will consist of Forrest, Dan Lauzon (formerly of ENTROPY) on guitar, Louis Leveque on drums and "very special guest" Borislav Mitic on second guitar.
Forrest is currently in the south of France working on a new record called "Curse Of The Cunt". Due in 2010 via Thundering Records, the CD's lyrical concept will be based on "what man has gone through to be with women," according to Eric. "The pros and cons... Nine months to get out and the rest of your life to get back in." Songtitles set to appear on the album include "Mass Deception", "Curse Of The Cunt" and "Nature Of The Bitch".
Commented Forrest: "I am not speaking negative about females, just writing about what power they actually have and what some guys will do to get some — good or bad — of which every one on this planet can relate to in certain ways, of course."
E-FORCE released its sophomore album, "Modified Poison", in February 2008 via France's Thundering Records. The CD, which was recorded at a studio in Toulouse, France with producer Patrick Freidrich, includes collaborations with Colin-Tocquaine as well as Tim and Kevin Guttierez of PROJECT: FAILING FLESH. Moreover, Eric decided to re-record/cover a song from the unreleased VOIVOD 2001 demo as a tribute to late VOIVOD guitarist Denis "Piggy" D'Amour.
E-FORCE's debut album, "Evil Forces", came out in October 2003 via Season Of Mist Records.
