God Forbid - Determination (Century Media) - Back
Mixing the best elements of thrash, hardcore and death metal, God Forbid has released their second album; first on Century Media. For the majority of the band members, this is their first band, but you could never tell. These metallers are tight for being such a young band. That can only mean one thing for this band, they probably will become pretty popular, rather quickly. Trying to find band that sound similar to God Forbid is hard, but you could consider the similarities that they have with their label mates Shadows Fall. This album is written quite well, and there are a handful of songs that I like. They include "Broken Promises," "Divide My Destiny," "Wicked," "Go Your Own Way," and "God's Last Gift." Among those "Wicked" is probably my favorite track. There are twelve tracks on this CD which runs almost forty-seven minutes. The future looks pretty promising for God Forbid, hopefully they can continue writing material in the same vain. If they can do that, they will be around for a long time.
