...we put out our first record, Uncertain Future, in the winter of 1989 and then we did our first tour with Coroner and Atrophy, and we did the whole States with them. That was pretty cool. Then we came back home for about three weeks, and went back out for another seven weeks with Sacred Reich and Obituary. When we came back from that we took about two months off, then we went to Rhode Island to record our brand new record, As Above So Below and that came out Tuesday, and that gets everybody up to date.Tony Benjamins / Forced Entry interview, 1991
FORCED ENTRY released their second, and final, album As Above, So Below on this day in 1991 through Relativity Records.
It was really really cold, so I mean it was like freezing outside. The east coast gets really cold I think compared to here, to BC or Seattle. As far as the studio experience itself, we went about it doing it a lot different than any of the other 24 track recordings we do. This was actually like a 48 track recording, it was all automated board and stuff so a lot was done for us. We wouldn't have been able to do it, I mean we wouldn't have been able to get the sounds at all without our producer, Tom Soares. He did a really good job.Tony Benjamins / Forced Entry interview, 1991
A lot of [song ideas] come from dreams and stuff. A lot of them come to me at weird times of day. I just go, fuck, I should do a song about that, or I should try writing a rhythm like this, you know a lot of rhythm musical ideas 'cause I write some of the guitar in the band too, probably around half. A lot of those ideas come to me, you know at weird places like at work. I just start thinking about a rhythm, cool I'm gonna check out that rhythm when I get home and try to play that, you know. It's that kind of thing. Otherwise I read lots of books.Tony Benjamins / Forced Entry interview, 1991
