Forced Order are Southern California hardcore heavyweights with members currently or previously having been in some of the scene's premier heavy bands like Twitching Tongues, Harness, Disgrace and other members of the Rev family, Soul Search. Their sound takes cues from the '90s Cleveland scene, with a crunch and metallic edge reminiscent of In Cold Blood, Integrity and "Birth Is Pain"-era Ringworm. They are delivering a 7" recorded by Bill Korecky at the Mars Compound (Integrity, In Cold Blood, etc.) as well as an upcoming LP recorded by Taylor Young via Revelation Records.
