Licensed by japanese label Break The Records (BTR-052). Tokyo, Japan’s Forward formed in 1996 after the break up of legendary Tokyo Hardcore band DEATHSIDE, with Lead singer Ishiya and Bassist You to start a new band that would continue “Forward” with new Punk sounds.
Forward have been playing assaulting melodic hardcore punk since 1996 and triumph with every release. Here’s some essential Japanese hardcore from Forward. These guys have delivered supercharged, balls-to-the-wall hardcore punk since the late 90’s and never show signs of fatigue. These dudes absolutely shred and are in your face with thrashing punk riffs, dirty bass tones, barbaric drums and insane vocal snarls from DEATHSIDE’s Ishiya.
