Incredibly proud that the new single has been voted in at the number 1 spot of this months edition of Limburg rocks! And you can own this one for free!
Watch out for news on our new album Seasons!
Finally a new track! From the coming album Seasons comes the single edit for the track Change The World. And since it is a song with a message of hope, a lyric video seemed the way to go. All vocals by Phil Vincent, all instruments by Peter Cox, who also wrote it and mixed and mastered as well. Enjoy and if you like it, please show your support by liking, sharing, commenting, etc. Thank you!
Since another album will be a while, we decided that a video for one of the tracks on Lonely Desert would be a good idea. After all, 5 months number 1 on the Rock Top 30 at OMWR, very favorable reviews all around, and still a lot of people are not aware of the album. It deserves more attention, so everyone is invited to help share it!
Holy cow, as if getting a nomination for the Lonely Desert album wasn’t enough, we now also received a nomination for the 2016 Rock Track Of The Year award for the opening song on the album, Valley Of Pain!
Needless to say we are very humbled and proud. You can vote here, and we want to wish all the nominees success!
Thank you to all the folks and listeners at One World Music <3
Well, how to react to the fact that your album is on top of the Top 30 Rock Chart for a record breaking 5th month in a row? I am speechless and so thankful for all the support Lonely Desert is receiving. It is awesome beyond words and humbling. The best words I have are THANK YOU!
For now we are resting on our laurels a bit, but rest assured, there will be another Forest Field album. We just need to get it started, someday…. But for now we enjoy this success <3
We have the honor of receiving the 2016 Rock album nomination from the ever so friendly people at One World Music Radio. Their team of judges have decided to put our album Lonely Desert among the 10 nominees!
If you look at the list, it feels kinda unreal we are featured there. Even when our previous album Angels? won at the awards for 2015.
Needless to say we wish all the nominees success! As far as we are concerned, we are all already winners.
Dmitry from Let It Rock on DMME has written another great review for our latest album! You can find it on their website or read it below. Thank you Dmitry!
FOREST FIELD – Lonely Desert
Rock Company 2016
Spicy, if not spaced out, interpretation of the Muad’Dib story. Epic choruses abound.
Over the years, there’s been a few attempts to harness the essence of Frank Herbert’s “Dune” but only Klaus Schulze had taken it to an LP scale while eschewing songs’ format, an approach which multi-instrumentalist Peter Cox turned around for his fourth album loosely based on the classic book. With former LEGION singer Phil Vincent giving voice to most of the pieces here and clinging to Arrakis’ literary surface in “Fear” to create a triumphant finale, “Lonely Desert” is a many-layered work which reveals previously unnoticed textures with every new spin without losing its infectiousness.
One doesn’t need to be familiar with the context, though, to feel its melodic grip once “Valley Of Pain” has set things in motion with a heavy guitar hook, before vocals bring airiness into the arid riff-and-strum whose AOR magnetism is inescapable. There also sublime harmonies to make the refrains of “Into The Light” and “Asleep” as memorable as possible, yet dry production and deliberate toning down of the performances add to the thematic and cinematic dramatism that’s dictated by the original sci-fi saga.
Whereas voiceless vignettes such as “To Bits” introduce folk sensibility to the narrative, they also provide atmospheric contrast to the tension oozing out from the organ-bolstered “Alienation” to let this cosmos breathe. It may be lonely out there, but there’s music for a company.
