Thundering Records / Manitou Music / Twilight
E-FORCE was formed in Montreal in the spring of 2001 by singer/bassist Eric Forrest, upon his departure from cyber-metallers VOIVOD.
After choosing to use his VOIVOD moniker as the bands name, Eric was joined by guitarists Danny Lauzon (formerly of ENTROPY) and Bryan Donahue (formerly of HOMICIDE) and drummer Louis Levesque (ex-GENETIC CONTROL). E-FORCE was signed by the Season Of Mist Records label and released their debut album "Evil Forces" in October 2003. They played in June 2003, for the Obey the Flames Festival in Montreal with STRAPPING YOUNG LAD and IMMOLATION.
Because of personal and business reasons, Eric relocated in France and changed the line up,with the touring members: Dennis Roussel (SOUL EROSION, DIATRIBE), Jerome Point (MUTANZERO), Krof (CATACOMBE, HELLFROST). Since this time, they opened for IMPALED NAZARENE and SCARVE, they performed for the Six Pack Week end Festival in Cleveland in June 2004 (with DORO, METAL CHURCH, DISMEMBER...), and the Raismes festival in September 2004 (with ANGRA, RAGE, PRIMAL FEAR...). In Winter 2005 E-FORCE embarked into a European tour with CARPATHIAN FOREST, TSJUDER AND WYKKED WYTCH.
In the end of 2005, E FORCE is back with a new line up and a new demo, more Heavy and melodic and always Thrash. The new guitar player of E FORCE is a 19 year old guitar hero influenced by MALMSTEEM, MARTY FRIEDMAN, ANDY LAROQUE. The current line up is: ERIC FORREST: bass/vocals CYRIL BERNHARD: guitars BORIS LUGAN: drums. E-FORCE can now concentrate in writing new materials for the next album release. Plus, Alex from AGRESSOR is co-writing a track, as are Tim and Kevin Guttierez of PROJECT: FAILING FLESH. Moreover, Eric has decided to re-record/cover a song from the unreleased VOIVOD demo 2001 as a tribute to PIGGY.
In 2006, E-FORCE signs a new deal with Pervade/Thundering for 3 albums release. The new E-FORCE "Modified Poison" record is now ready to hit the shelves. Masterized by Achim Kohler (SODOM/PRIMAL FEAR), this is a real bomb of powerful Thrash Metal enriched by virtuoso guitar solos. Can you feel the force rising?
