E-FORCE was formed in Montreal, Canada in 2001 by vocalist/bassist Eric Forrest, upon his departure from the legendary Canadian cyber metallers Voivod. In all Eric appeared on two studio masterpieces, “Negatron” and “Phobos”, on the live album, “Voivod Lives” and on the compilation: “Kronik”. When leaving Voivod, Forrest used his nickname, “E-Force”, as the name for his new band.
Labeled monsters of thrash, Eric Forrest’s wide array of musical influences and vocal capabilities set E-FORCE apart from the pack and ensure that this band is very original.E-FORCE released their debut album “Evil Forces” to widespread critical acclaim in 2003. Soon after Forrest relocated to France, resulting in a line-up change. Three more albums were released in the following years, cementing E-FORCE as an entity to be reckoned with in the thrash scene.
Throughout the band’s 20 years career (performing in 20 countries, 250+ shows and several festival appearances) as well as some guests on different E-FORCE albums (Glen Drover, Kristian Niemann, to name a few), Eric will now return with the opus “Mindbender”, released in 2021 on Mighty Music. “Mindbender” will still be in the catchy vein characterizing the E-FORCE style, but will also add slower tempos parts and particular ambiences, making the connection with Eric’s venture as a cult member of Voivod.
