5 pieces hardcore/punk band from north of Malaysia. Formerly known as Fujicolor. Released first demo in September 2006 under utarid:tapes, an independent label based in Malaysia. Then release 2nd demo late 2007 under Swarm And Nails Record based in France. Been on hiatus since 2008, and now back with 3 original founding member. Working on new material that planned to be released on July 2011.
Sforzando! started in early 2006 when all of the band members met at the same college. Adam, Yap, Aman, Naqi and Boy started jamming songs from Mineral, Nirvana and some of local bands and then its evolved into song writing sessions as Sforzando!. The band started playing gigs all across the regions in various sets and extra additional of visual with the help of Jibin controlling lightings and fog machine.
Their influences like Mineral , The Gloria Record , Texas Is The Reason , Buddhistson , Sunny Day Real Estate , Sigur Ros and I/am/Rain just to name a few really inspired them in developing big , sweeping , effects-laden sound and droning riffs embedded with moaning vocals through most of their songs. With the help of Syam , Noa , Jibin and Alep as their regular session‚Äôs, they still holding on as Sforzando! up until now for the passion of the music and friends.
Review from Junk! about our latest EP, Hope
“On paper,a mix of bleeding heart emo and post rock might sound likely. But if you truly listen to both genres separately, it’d be hard not to notice the similarities between the guitar figures employed in both genres. Hence, it’s quite a surprise to see that only in 2008 does a band appear on the scene here in Malaysia employing the tactics of both the aforesaid genres. This five-song debut EP is quiet something; if this was released about four or five years ago, Sforzando! would probably get a lot more fanfare than they’re getting now since even the hippest post rockers back then weren’t ashamed to admit a liking to emo bands like Mineral. It’s a shame that Hope is released now as it’s pretty good, even to someone as unimpressed with post rock as i am.”
* Gonna release their first Tape under FREAK Music. Stay Tuned
