This past summer I posted about Germany's BANISHED FORCE and was freaking out about the band's ability to deliver some to-the-point killer thrash metal.
At the time, they were still working on their new release titled Greed, an album I was eagerly awaiting.
Well, it looks like we have to take some bad news to go with the good news.
The good news: Greed is out. In fact, you can hear the entire album below via YouTube, gracefully uploaded with the band's blessing.
The bad news: Greed is Banished Force's second and final album. Apparently they disbanded, claiming that Greed will never be released on CD. The band posted on their Facebook page, "thanks for your support over the years and the great time we had together."
Bummer. I hate seeing bands break up.
However, Banished Force is leaving us with a parting gift: They are allowing the public to download Greed for FREE. Not so Greedy after all, eh?
So check out the album below, and then click HERE or HERE to download the album (booklet included).
Afterward, visit them on Facebook and give them a "thanks" and a "goodbye".
Parting is such sweet sorrow (although the free album takes the sting out a bit!).
