When it comes to ambition, not many genres reach for goals as lofty as power metal and Ground-Force, which are nothing to do with Charlie Dimmock and co. have set their stall out to be as ambitious as they come. Settling on their line-up in 2020, the Bangladeshi band have been working on their debut album ‘Tree of Life’, a concept album about a dystopian future, space travel and alien genomics.

                That all sounds like a major headfuck from just typing it out; see, I told you it was ambitious. ‘Tree of Life’ tells the story of Robin and Azra and their struggles that are delivered in true power metal style. Yet, this is not done in the generic Iron Maiden-esque galloping rhythms and soaring vocals; ‘Tree of Life’ is a clever album which shows the range of influences that have gone into this band. Tracks such as ‘Spear of Light’, ‘The Watchers’ and ‘The Archangel’ show a band worshipping Roy Khan era-Kamelot as well as Firewind. Furthermore, there is a progressive touch here too, something that wouldn’t be out of place on a Stratovarius album or even Symphony X album as Ground-Force add in swathes of progressive elements which gives ‘Tree of Life’ quite a broad range of appeal within the genre.

However, there isn’t much here that hasn’t been done before, dystopian concepts are a little done to death, but it is a concept that pisses all over Dream Theater’s ‘The Astonishing’ but let’s face it, that isn’t hard. ‘Tree of Life’ is decent enough, it’s a little flawed at times, but its got all the pieces in the right place to make future releases even better. - Metal Digest

Release Date: August 13, 2021

FFO: Kamelot, Symphony x, Firewind

Ground-Force is a power-metal band from Dhaka, Bangladesh. Primarily planned in 2017, the band was experimenting with its line-up throughout 2018-2019 and finally formed with the current line-up in early 2020.

The Debut Album:
The self-produced, ambitious three-volume debut album 'Tree of Life' has just been digitally released this 13th August, 2021 through global distributorship and under license of cdbaby. 

The ‘Tree of Life’ is a concept-album. Story synopsis:
‘Tree of Life’ tells the story of a divided mankind in the far future engaged in the war. ROBIN and AZRA are the unsung heroes. From a dystopian world, they call out for help to space and beyond. Arrival of an unknown being occurs! They demolish the Gamblers of the earth with the SPEAR OF LIGHT. But everything has a cost. THE WATCHERS break the rules and breed monsters! But what will be the end?

Album detail:
The album has been released as a 3-Volume album: with its Volume 1 in English (for the global audience), Volume 2 in Bangla (for the native Bangla population of 180+ million) and the final one, the Volume 3 is an all-instrumental one, with the backing tracks of the album songs. Each volume has seven (07) tracks. This 3-volume, bilingual album with a full instrumental volume approach, has been the first of its kind, not only in Bangladesh, but hopefully in entire South-Asia, to our best knowledge.

The album launch campaign also included, 14 beautifully crafted, fully animated official music videos, currently being premiered one by one, on our official YouTube channel.
