Forged In Black | Live Booking:

Forged In Black’s music was created for the stage; bringing together all the drama and passion of traditional metal, the grandeur and emotion of doom, the irrepressible energy of power metal and the sheer attacking force of thrash, these songs can capture the hearts of any metal crowd. With the towering presence of front man Chris ‘Stoz’ Storozynski leading the charge, his immense vocals soaring over the twin guitars of Andy Songhurst and Chris Bone, Forged In Black are a heavy metal dream. This is one band that truly lives for their time on stage and in full flight they are incomparable.

In recent months Forged In Black have performed with ex-JUDAS PRIEST, ex-ICED EARTH singer TIM ‘RIPPER’ OWENS – a show which saw two prodigious vocal talents going head to head! Ripper was the latest in a number of renowned live performers with whom Forged In Black have shared the stage, with other names including BREED 77, BEHOLDER, SAVAGE MESSIAH, NEVERWORLD, ALWAID, DESIGNS OF CHAOS, NEURONSPOILER and NWOBHM heroes PRAYING MANTIS and THE DEEP.

In September of 2017 Forged In Black launched their new EP, Sinner Sanctorum, with a show at the Camden Underworld, supporting Canadian hard rockers, Napalm Records recording artists, DIEMONDS. The great shows continued into 2018, with the band appearing at the 10th anniversary of the prestigious HAMMERFEST, which sold out months in advance. HAMMERFEST X also featured SEPULTURA, ANAAL NATHRAKH, CONAN, ex-IRON MAIDEN vocalist BLAZE BAYLEY and a host of other international stars.

For the next several months the band were hard at work writing and recording their new album, Descent Of The Serpent, for new label Fighter Records; only venturing back into the spotlight for a headline show at the infamous Cart & Horses in East London, supported by old friends NEVERWORLD. Once work was complete on their incredible new album, Forged In Black celebrated with a stunning home town show at Chinnery’s in Southend, before returning to rock the capital once more – appearing at the Camden Underworld with NWOBHM legends DEMON and power metal heroes DENDERA.

Since the release of their new album, on March 5th 2019, Forged In Black have started a run of dates around the UK. They celebrated the album release with another memorable show in Southend, with support from management stable mates MAXDMYZ, went to toe-to-toe with thrashers INCINERY and ERADIKATOR in Birmingham, were supported by OUTRIGHT RESISTANCE in Ipswich and more dates are booked and ready to be revealed.

Forged In Black are a live force to be reckoned with and an impressive addition to any bill.
