Hands down my favorite album from the band; I know lots prefer Twisted Into Form, but this one to me has it all-- melody, crunch, speed, and is not quite as polished.

Forbidden remind me a bit of Death Angel in that they really only put out about 2 excellent albums, with the rest being pretty mediocre-- but, like Death Angel-- when they are on, they are on.

I believe the first song I ever heard from them was "March Into Fire" from the Eastern Front/Live at Ruthie's Inn double vinyl...


Forbidden Evil is definitely Top 20 for me....



   1.  Chalice of Blood
   2. Off The Edge
   3. Through Eyes of Glass
   4. Forbidden Evil
   5. March into Fire
   6. Feel No Pain
   7. As Good As Dead
   8. Follow Me

Some great live vids from the era:

I like this disc, but I vastly prefer the followup. Still, it was cool to hear a decent recording of some of these songs, having had the demos fro quite a while before this came out.

lol

I want to hear it!

As for the album at hand, it's excellent but the vocals always get me a bit.  Nothing particularly bad about them, in general they're great.  Every so often he's just out there, wild a bit beyond range.  I'm nitpicking though.  The solos on this album and the fire in it's belly always keep me guessing day to day if I'll say this or Twisted Into Form tops it.  I love the title track, Through Eyes of Glass, Chalice of Blood.  First class thrash.

It's just a dual guitar solo. I've never understood exactly why it's on that compilation.  scratch

To be honest, this is one of those bands/albums I feel I should like way more than I do.

I always have to pick my jaw up off the floor after the middle section of Through Eyes of Glass.  Chalice of Blood, t/t, March into Fire, Feel no Pain, Follow Me, As Good as Dead, all great.  Only Off the Edge is somewhat mediocre (although I know zeke loves Russ's zealous recital of the title).

Fucking ripping debut album, maybe (along w. the Legacy) the best debut thrash album ever.  It's so hard to compare to Twisted though.  Reminds me of Slayer's transition from RiB to SoH.  They knew they couldn't top it, and so went more progressive,subtle, and yeah, twisted.  I love both albums, and so different, hard to compare.

Well, Art is Art, isn't it? Still, on the other hand, water is water. And east is east and west is west and if you take cranberries and stew them like applesauce they taste much more like prunes than rhubarb does. Now you tell me what you know.
