REVIEW: John O'Callaghan - The Forging Of Steel out on Go On Air

For the 40th release on his imprint, Giuseppe Ottaviani brings in John O’Callaghan with all guns blazing in Forging Of Steel! Expect a trip towards the darker side of trance, as Forging Of Steel dives into trance's edgier, underground realms. A tech-inspired bassline, obscure vocal work and driving rhythm are all you need to make the latest GO On Air a true must-have release. 
John O'Callaghan Official" "Imagine an industrial warehouse with rusty old steel furnaces pouring molten lava into pots and underneath there is an army of Urukai making new blunt weapons from this red death liquid. That's what I thought about, the soundtrack to that."
