Forbidden

Forbidden was part of the second wave of thrash metal bands which arose from the Bay Area Scene (along with Testament, Death Angel, Vio-Lence, etc.), and though full of promise early on, they never broke through like many predicted.

Originally formed in 1985 as Forbidden Evil by vocalist Russ Anderson, guitarists Robb Flynn and Craig Locifero, bassist Matt Camacho, and drummer Paul Bostaph, the group slugged it out around the Bay Area club scene like hundreds of other up-and-coming garage bands inspired by thrash originators like Metallica, Slayer, and especially Exodus. Flynn wouldn't last long (going on to form Vio-Lence, then Machine Head), but with his replacement, Glen Alvelais, the band gradually built a following and eventually signed with Combat Records. Their 1988 debut, Forbidden Evil, received largely favorable reviews and they set out on the road with fellow thrashers Exodus, Death Angel, and Testament. Forbidden then recorded a live EP at the 1989 Dynamo Festival in Eindhoven, entitled Raw Evil: Live at the Dynamo. But unlike their friends Testament, who had successfully pulled off the same stunt two years earlier and solidified their footing with European audiences in the process, the record won them few new fans.

Guitarist Alvelais quit to join Testament shortly before the recording of 1990's Twisted into Form -- a less inspired but more focused collection of technical thrash, which still failed to break new ground. Then, like many of their peers, Forbidden fell prey to the dwindling interest in thrash metal symptomatic of the early '90s, and a 1992 best-of collection called Point of No Return seemed like the end of the road. Yet the band persisted, despite their near-obscurity and the defection of drummer Bostaph to the mighty Slayer in 1994. New drummer Steve Jacobs joined the group for 1995's Distortion and the band broke up shortly after the release of 1997's Green. Guitarist Calvert went on to join power metal band Nevermore, while Locifero, Camacho, and Jacobs formed Manmade God. ~ Eduardo Rivadavia, Rovi

Robb Flynn doesn't play guitar on any of Forbidden's albums. Mastermind Craig Locicero and Glen, then Craig and Tim, and most recent is Craig and shredder Steve Smyth (ripping duo). Robb Flynn is more associated with Vio-Lence.

You could definetly hear the melodic guitar riffs Robb Flynn uses in Machinehead

They need to put every single album for this band. Because they are really good and they should put every album for every thing to pandora just like this band these are not the only two albums they have come on pandora

I like 'em all, "Distortion" the least, but Pandora really needs to get with it and also add "Omega Wave". That, and TIF AND "Green" would be nice. Wassup Pandora?

No TIF? No Green either! Ridiculous!

I think the Forbidden Evil album is better than Twisted Into Form

Funny, they have the Twisted Into Form cover for their bio photo but the album's not in the playlist.

Absolutely shredding, totally under rated thrash masters. Best Bay Area band, period. Why they don't get the praise they deserve, I don't understand.

i hate that term''bay area thrash''-exo d u s , f o r b i d d e n and testament and death angel are all very different and have their invidual sound-same with new bands like evile-warbri n g e r and bonded by blood...

i miss so many shows being sick. my work just wipes me out competely,so i missed binded by blood,evile and gamma bomb but we got there just in time for Forbidden. one and hour and forty five minutes later we felt satisfied. old school riffage and they ripped like the thrashing motherfuckke r s they are. russ talked about their history and he was enertaining as hell. One of the year's best shows for me.

i saw the Utube video. Russ is FAT! Still sounds good, but can't hit the high notes at all. He looks like he'd give up the mic in a second for a blunt and a baker's dozen.

Full on in your face thrash metal, but never got their due. I saw a post on Utube recently and it looks like they reunited to do a festival called Grashop. Old metalheads never die!
Report as inappropriate
Oh the Travesty! History will look back with disdain. This was one of the greatest Thrash, Speed metal albums of all time. In your face, with great melody and power (specially the 1st album). Rock on! If you want to see what new bands (like 3 inches of blood) sounded like, You must check this out.
