FORGERY med kontrakt
Forgery sign to Candlelight Records / Nocturnal Art Productions
Forgery is a four-piece band playing hard, fast and uncompromising thrash metal. The band was originally formed in the summer of 1990, but went into hiatus in the mid-nineties, after a couple of demo releases. Resurfacing with a new drummer in 2002, Karl Jonny Lervg (ex-Paradigma), they went back to the drawing board to come up with an even harder and more uncompromising style, incorporporating the honest aggression and brutality of the legendary Bay Area bands with a more up-to-date sound and incorporating more diverse musical influences. Armed with new material, Forgery recruited a second guitarist, Ronny Hansen (ex-Enthral) in 2004, and have since been concentrating on writing and recording new material, as well as tearing up the live scene in Norway, both on their own and on festivals like Inferno. In the summer of 2006 they recorded their first ever full-length album entitled CORE, recorded and mixed at Strand Studio. In 2006/2007 KJ decided to leave the band due to personal reasons. In the search for a new drummer Forgery ended up with Jan Roger Halvorsen (ex.Old Mans Child, drums on Rotting Christ album ”Khronos”, session drummer for Zensor, 54). His impressive playing gave the band excellent opportunities in the making of new material. Forgery changed from being a pure thrash-metal act to a band mixing different genres in metal. 2009: New album on the way and the band is yet again in concert-mode, and are looking forward to destroy the peace and reek havoc where ever they go.
