As Above So Below is the final recording from Seattle-area thrash heroes Forced Entry. Musically similar to their earlier efforts, this 1991 Combat/Relativity records release boasts a punchier sound and slightly more technical material than prior efforts by the band. Brad Hull's guitar work is especially impressive, and his bandmates Collin Mattson (drums) and Tony Benjamins (bass and vocals) also deliver some creative and powerful performances of their own. The relentless and well-focused opener "Bone Crackin' Fever" and "When One Becomes Two" are highlights for sure, but the performances on As Above So Below are all very consistent, and although the same cannot be said for the material on this swan song, thrash fans unfamiliar with the regionally important Forced Entry might want to check out this their best sounding (if not best-realized) effort.
