With the release of When We Are All in May of 2012, Fullerton, CA based The Slow Forward is leading the way for a new generation of post-metal bands by bringing an inspired, energetic, and heavy new sound to the airwaves. Both coarse and scathing, yet at times careful and melodic, When We Are All is crisp and callous vocals tethered to complex, layered guitar work seamlessly blended with powerfully skillful percussion, then supplemented by understated keyboards and tasteful, vintage instrumentation. The Slow Forward's When We Are All is a long-awaited sonic statement from a group that has been relentlessly circling southern California since 2005.
The goal of The Slow Forward has always been simple: abandon all preconceived notions of today's commercial industry appeal and write music from the heart. Everything else is secondary and will follow. With this central idea in mind, the four-piece began the process of writing and producing an innovative blend of experimental/progressive rock and melodic metal. They have refined this craft over years into a sound that is truly unique and uncompromising; a howl of clarity in a world awash in the murmur of the mundane. Aptly garnering both peer critical acclaim and industry praise for energetic, balanced song-writing combined with an interesting and creatively structured live set.
The Slow Forward plays innovative, hard-to-categorize blend of experimental/progressive rock and melodic metal that puts them in that nearly indefinable category. They have refined their sound to a point where they are truly unique and uncomprimising. A one of a kind original in world of the mundane.
