God Forbid are an awesome band from New Jersey featuring Byron Davis - Vocals, John Outcalt - Bass, Doc Coyle - Vocals/Guitar, Dallas Coyle - Vocals/Guitar and Corey Pierce - Drums.
"Soon after the group’s inception in 1996, Out of Misery and Reject The Sickness were released on the small indie label 9 Volt Records helping GOD FORBID develop a rabid underground following. This buzz quickly attracted the attention of Century Media Records who immediately signed the band. In 2001, they unleashed Determination – an Americanized form of thrash metal so unrelenting that it brought listeners to their knees."
"After a three-year wait and with a desire to prove to the world just what they are truly capable of, the group return with their most pummeling offering to date. This time they have successfully bridged the gap between thrash, hardcore and traditional metal. The group’s many influences, ranging from Ozzy and Slayer to Megadeth and The Haunted all shine though on this stunning new offering, as they created a record that can appeal to any fan of heavy music no matter their preference. The new album, Gone Forever, was recorded at Trax East Studios by Eric Rachel (Atreyu, A Life Once Lost) and mixed by acclaimed producer Colin Richardson (Chimaira, Fear Factory)"
Most recently, they have toured with Killswitch Engage, Chimaira and Shadows Fall (2004), supported Machine Head (2004), and have just finished their own tour supported by Ted Maul and Extol.
Prepare to be annihilated.
God Forbid played an awesome set last night, man!
