ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
THE FORCE (www.theforcewebsite.com)

REMEMBER THE DAYS WHEN SEX WAS SAFE AND MUSIC WAS DANGEROUS

The year 2002 british guitarist/singer MARK ELLIOTT first met german drummer
HANNS HAUREIN in Switzerland, where they both have their domicile. Together
with swiss Bassist BEAT SCHAUB they started as backing band on a German
Rock production.It was clear right from the begining, the three musicians had found
what they had been searching for, and developed a good friendship. Already after a
few sessions together, the trio had found their roots and perfect musical harmonies.
It was easy because they all felt a deep love for 70's Blues based rock bands as Led Zeppelin,
Free, Thin Lizzy, Lynyrd Skynyrd etc.- hand made Rock!

Against all the newest musical trends The FORCE are keeping the tradition. For a start the trio
selected a series of cover versions from Popa Chubby, ZZ Top, Robin Trower, Free to Joe Bonamassa, but after a heavy song writing period the band added their own material to their new live set list.

In 2003 at a live comeback concert from 70s Supergroup HUMBLE PIE, HANNS HAUREIN met Guitarist/Singer BOB TENCH who was replacing the great STEVE MARRIOTT after his death.
HAUREIN had great respect for Bob Tench, one of the most respected musicians that never made his fame but still remains a legend as side man (singer/guitarist) from
JEFF BECK, VAN MORRISON, ROGER CHAPMAN, STREETWALKERS, GARY MOORE, PETER GREEN, just a few names to a never ending list.

HAUREIN and TENCH were on the same level of thinking, Tench was impressed from an idea from Haurein of using The FORCE as backing band for a small European tour. Although both parties still had unfinished business, a future tour is planed.

The Force worked on their own songs and in the beginning of 2006 the self-titled album "The Force" was released with 12 hard rocking, blues rooted original songs.

Reviews:

With a british singer/guitarist, swiss bassist and a german drummer this hardrock-trio presents a top class CD. This compact hammer-sound with fat guitar-riffs, pregnant “straight into the face!” solos and a precisely working rhythm-section reminds in a discreet and competent way of bands like Thin Lizzy (track 4 & 6 - with monster grooves and wild guitar leads), Molly Hatchet (1), Krokus ( 3 & 10), Victory (12) or Great White (5) at their best times - but without copying these acts.
A superb production, a sound like a wall and an outstanding musical performance will highly please all fans of the above mentioned bands.

The Force is hard bluesful rockmusic with solid guitar and rhythm --section work. The production is straight and direct and it sounds raw on a high energy level. Elliotts rough blues-voice fits perfectly to the sound. Although the sound is not very innovative but highly effective. A beautiful example is “Wild Horses” with it’s smooth guitar melody. The Force guitar-riffs remind of bands like AC/DC, Stevie Ray Vaughan and Krokus. The chorus of “Bad Luck” sounds like Jimi Hendrix’ “Voodoo Chile”, the “Boogie On Down” riff was stolen from Vaughan and “Road To Nowhere” is known as Lukather’s “Never Walk Alone”. But for all that the album is convincing because it is simply superb.
Rolf Zellweger -music.ch-


A genuine handmade rocksound is the result when three musicians with a love for blues rooted bands like Led Zeppelin, Free, Thin Lizzy or Lynyrd Skynyrd get together. The Force delivers exactly this sound (…) and presents - against the common trend - 12 hard and bluesbased rock songs.
H.Elias Fröhlich -BLICK-


We don't really know this band that just issued a cd in Switzerland on Disctrade records, and where plays an Englishman Mark Eliott (that had previously worked with Gallagher, Clapton, Dire Straits… before), a German Hanns Haurein on drums (who previously played with the Edgar Broughton Band, Company of Wolves, Not' n' nasty, etc…), and a Swiss boy Beat Schaub on bass guitar. So we don't really know a lot about them, but we just can say that The Force, in a Boogie-Hard-Bluesy style, should be enjoyed by a lot of big sound and hard guitar choruses -on a heavy rhythm network- fans. So I know that the music they give us is not really new or innovative, but when I listen to a song such as 'Road to Nowhere', I only can say they are good and they made a good job. Nice women, Bikers and Rock n' Roll, that a famous compilation and this record has to be listened as soon as possible !
