Review by Joel Naugle

This week’s show review is all about the 6 band, face melting metal show that went down at Mustang Sally’s in Moraine, OH on Saturday, September 7th.

Mustang Sally’s is a great venue with an excellent bar, serving your choice of a ton of domestic beer and great mixed drinks. The bartenders are also cool and will get you whatever you need. Smoking is allowed outside of the 
building and they have fire pits to keep you warm on those cold winter nights. Inside, they have 2 dart boards and 2 pool tables to keep you entertained between sets or when you just need something to keep your hands busy.  As for the stage area, it’s a pretty good set up with plenty of room for people to sit or stand to see their favorite bands play.

If you haven’t checked out the Dayton band Forces of Nature, you’ve truly been missing some great local metal!  Dynamic, insistent, and insanely brutal, Forces of Nature brings the metal beat-down every time!  I’ve been lucky enough to see this band live a number of times, and I know it’s always going to be a great evening whenever Forces is in the house!

Live at McGuffy’s

Every member of this crew brings mad skills to the table… from shredding guitar riffs to blistering drums and bass to old-school death growl vocals and primo backup vox.  The high points of this project that set them apart from other local metal bands are the Dime-style leads by guitarist, Jimmy Rose, the counterpoint backups from Johnnie “Vladimir” Wallace, and their willingness to play anywhere and help out the local scene through various benefits and shows.   This band is a definite “must-see” in my book!

Band Bio…
Forces of Nature started back in 2000 in Chattanooga, Tennessee and played all over the southern U.S. with their first album, Blood Moon (Crooked D Records), before relocating to Dayton in 2006 and starting over in a new city.  Here in Dayton, they continued enhancing their sound and making in-roads with the local scene while writing and recording their second album, Pagan Warrior.  They’ve melted faces at venues all around the area and have become entrenched as a local metal favorite now and forever.
