Moving Forward in 2018

This may be old news, but we invited our friend Adam Heinzmann (Internal Void) to join us on bass. Jim & Chuck & Adam are long-time friends.

Rest In Power Rev. Jim

Our world shattered on December 18, 2017

There could only be one Rev. Jim Forrester.
Truly a sad and tragic day.
You will forever be in our hearts and in those whom you touched with your talent, brotherhood and friendship.
Rest In Power, brother. 

 

13 guitar salute to one of the baddest ass musicians I’ve ever known, kind, thoughtful and full to the brim with a rock n roll spirit like no other. Rest in Power Boss! Jim Forrester

Some words from Jim’s Wife, Tina Forrester

Our Last Performance with Rev. Jim

12/18/2017 Holiday party at Baltimore Tattoo Museum. This is the last song we played with Jim; he was murdered about 24 hours later during an attempted robbery. Many Thanks to Joanna Campbell for this video.

Pirates Press Promo

Pirates Press highlighted The Word Unseen in their

RECORD OF THE WEEK blog for June 10, 2016

“FOGHOUND erupted out of the Baltimore asphalt in 2012, high on gas fumes and loud riffs. FOGHOUND quickly got down to work honing their sound through many live shows across the Mid Atlantic region – now their second LP, “The World Unseen’ is coming at you from none other than RIPPLE MUSIC! The super subtle but very sick ‘Bone’ inside ‘Deep Purple’ color-in-color version is soon to sell out so hurry up!”
