BLACK FORGE are a 3 piece metal power-house from Somerset. With a huge range of influences from Motorhead to Pantera the band has crafted a style that is most definitely it's own. The music bridges Southern/ Groove Metal with with hints of nu metal and even classic Sabbath, resulting in a powerful and bludgeoning concoction.
The band formed in 2012 through the magic of the internet and were soon punching in with the heavyweights in the south-west area and beyond. Metal is in their blood and they are renowned for giving everything on their live performances; its hard to believe that there are just 3 people on the stage! Yet there is no pretense in this band, and they're just the kind of guys you'd be happy to share a beer (or a cider) with.
The band plays regularly in Bristol, Bath and the rest of west-country and bring southern groove to dark and heavy foundations. As a result they have a strong nationwide reputation.
