Forced Order – Vanished Crusade (Revelation)
We all know hardcore has changed quite a bit over the years, but what I am really interested in is knowing if one of the key ingredients – anger – can continue to play an ever increasing role in this game we call life. The pure, punk, anger of the 80’s, turned violent when metal distorted the genre into the ugly hell raisers like Integrity and Ringworm. Forced Order is cut from that same cloth, but has managed to reach back to the 80’s for a bit of an old school feeling too. It’s a well-­balanced mix of three decades of anger, fear and frustration, which lifts ‘Vanished Crusade’ above the masses, giving this dark album a rather fresh feeling, contradictory as that might sound.
