Forced Hammer’s first single, “The War Machine,” is an amazing demonstration of their metal might. With its roots in thrash metal, this song captures the raw, unfiltered essence of the genre, offering an authentic and captivating sound that hooks listeners from the start. The band’s talent to weave personal stories from Brightmon’s own combat experiences in Afghanistan and Iraq into their music is both powerful and poignant.

“The War Machine” is not just a song; it’s a visceral journey through the chaos and camaraderie of battle, delivered with a passion and precision that marks Forced Hammer as a standout act in the heavy metal scene. Their music is not only compelling; it is proof of the power of music to tell stories of heartbreak, heroism, and humanity.
