BBMA Band Of The Week #6: Forward To Eden

90's Style Hardline (Vegan-themed) Metalcore Band/Solo-Project from Germany.
(My own Band/Project) Demo CD (2015), Split 7" w/ Content With Dying (2016)
and Compilation Tape/CD (2016) all out on Bound By Modern Age Records.
FFO: Culture, Unborn, Statement & The Vegan Jihad!

Who are you, what are you doing in the band?

I'm Tim a.k.a. xRULEx and basically I am Forward To Eden. 
In FTE's first Incarnation (2014-2015) I did Vocals, Guitars & Bass.
In FTE's current Incarnation (2016-2017) I am doing Vocals & Guitars.
Besides that I am also singing in Castigator (Death/Thrash Metal Band)
and Through Chaos & Solitude (Melodic Black Metal Solo-Project) right now.

How has the band evolved since the beginning? 
What have you accomplished so far and what are your goals for the future? 

I kinda started this band/project (wrote the first songs for it) in late 2012/early 2013.
After I realized that I wont find people to bring it on stage with, I decided to do it as a solo project and recorded a first promo track with my good friend Rat (the man behind Statement).
Unfortunately he didn't had the time to record a whole demo with me and so it took some more time
until the first "demo" was released. This time with "The Vegan Warrior" on Drums.
Then, in late 2016 I had my first great achivement with my first Vinyl 7" release
and shortly after a CD release on another label than my own!
For this year, there is a lot more planed as well - the next Split 7" is already in the making
and there are also some possible line ups for a soon-to-be show in discussion - be prepared!

Any upcoming shows/releases/anything else you wanna tell us about? 

Shows? We'll see - I won't stand in the way of that.
Releases? Hopefully a lot! Probably some. Definitely at least 2 this year.

How do you feel about BBMA as a label? 
In what do we suck most/what could we do better in the future? 

Actually, I'd love to release on any other label(s) as well - so, feel free to get at me!
In what I do suck most? Probably in trying to do too much at once... like working a full time job,
doing the label, 2 solo-projects, a band and still managing private life (girlfriend, family, friends)
and hobbies (the gym, reading comics/mangas, watching series/movies, etc.) - I think I could be
a lot more productive if I'd cut out 2 or 3 of them... but yeah, I don't think that that will happen.
So... for now you'll have to live with that - but feel free to do your share and contribute in
listening to my output (, spreading the word about it
and last but not least placing an order from the BBMA Webstore, so that I can continue. Thanks.

Ps: For this Week, all products Forward To Eden related are on Sale from the BBMA Webstore.
