New-age Nineties power metal band FORTE from Oklahoma City, Oklahoma — featuring MICHAEL SCHENKER GROUP bassist Rev Jones and former OLIVER MAGNUM vocalist James Randel — has reunited with the Scott brothers (guitarist Jeff and drummer Greg) for a string of dates over the next couple of months. The next show will take place on Saturday, August 19 at The Hive in Tulsa, Oklahoma alongside BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE and CELLADOR. Check out a flyer for the concert at this location. More dates will be announced soon. Also in the works is a new album, to be recorded in the next few months.According to the BNR Metal Pages, FORTE released four quality albums in the Nineties, with their style being a power/thrash mixture not unlike early METAL CHURCH. Since their last release ("Rise Above", in 1999), several lineups have been reported, with the Scott brothers remaining the core of the band, and work was supposed to be underway on a new album, but nothing has yet come of this. Most recently (May 2004), a new band called THE KILL has emerged, featuring several former members (though not the Scotts). For more information, visit myspace.com/fortemetal.
