I was at the first Force show and I have to admit that I was not blown away. The live sound made it very hard to enjoy the early eighties NY hardcore sound. On their demo the sound is way better and the hardcore influenced by early NY bands like Agnostic front (united blood era), Warzone and Antidote sounds really good.
Force is a band with a very wide age range. Some members are around 40 and have experience in a wide range of highly successful bands wile others are in their early 20’s. But still the band manages to have the youthful enthusiasm that is needed for this kind of hardcore. Listen to the demo here and get a physical copy here.
