New E-FORCE Lineup To Enter Studio In August

Former VOIVOD bassist/vocalist Eric Forrest has rejoined forces with Krof (drums) and Jerome Point (lead guitar) in the latest incarnation of his France-based E-FORCE project. According to Forrest, the group — which last played together as part of the 2005 "Art Of Provocation" European tour — has scheduled a few shows in Italy in mid-June. He says, "After the May 29 private-party show [see video below], it's sounding fuckin' killer! I must say it brings back some memories playing as a three-piece. [It] sounded tight as fuck even just after a few rehearsals."

He adds, "It's a buzz playing with these guys... great players! Plus being huge VOIVOD fans is a blast! In fact, these upcoming shows we are playing a set of 'Negatron' and 'Phobos' songs and a few E-FORCE songs, and a few surprises!"

E-FORCE will enter the studio in August to record its new album called "Curse Of The Cunt". Due in January 2011 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 everyone 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.
