“Jesus, is this really a debut EP? Black Forge are phenomenally good. Evocative of Mastodon, High on Fire, Crowbar and Down, the trio's sludgy, no nonsense metal is definitely onto a winner, as it shows both the class and hooks that a lot of independent bands lack.

Black Forge, thank you for rocking so hard. 9/10 Powerpoints”
