God Forbid - Gone Forever + Bonus tracks!
Gone Forever + bonus tracks & videos! 2004 Review - God Forbid are certainly one of the more exciting & successful bands leading the American thrash charge. Their intelligent, socially conscious lyrics & metal-core instincts have served them well on what has been a deliberate & steady rise to the top.' 9 tracks of 100% American Metal that are a must for fans of Shadows Fall, Slayer, Killswitch Engage, Lamb Of God, & Chimaira. With the release of "Gone Forever," God Forbid approach near perfection in the world of hard rock & Metal. They have now, simply put, placed themselves in the elite of today as well as becoming one of the brighest hopes of tomorrow. On "Gone Forever," there's not a momentum breaking track on the album; the sequence is simply outstanding. The album balances its peaks & valleys with near precision until you are left pounded to the turf by "Judge the Blood" & its crushing fade-out. This is the kind of detailed thought that went into this album & it pays off many times over. This album is a sonic monster that pounds its soul right into yours with every listen. Bringing all the great sounds & performances together, the band used Colin Richardson (Carcass, etc...) to handle the mix. He helped put it all together into a powerful wall of sound. It's got the old school vibe presented in the new school way & sometimes the stereo just can't get loud enough for this album. It's that good! Overall, performances & writing are beyond top notch; they're creatively written, well thought out, energetic & reaking of talent. These guys are scary good! Track Listing: 1. Force-Fed 2.
