Forward: Just Go Forward to Death 12"
Reissue of the 2000 full-length by this legendary Japanese HC band. While I love all eras of forward, I've always been particularly partial to the band's early stuff, of which this LP and the While You Alive 12" are the very best. They still have the huge riffs and big hooks that they would continue to develop on their later releases, but Just Go Forward to Death is a little more rugged, faster, and generally more hardcore than just about anything else the band did. Killer LP, and I'm very glad to see it back in print on vinyl. Prank Records
