For the players out there, God Forbid just released a guitar demonstration video for the song Overcome off their latest album Equilibrium. It also includes the bass, let’s not forget the bass player. You can check out the video below.
In other news, God Forbid is about to embark on the Trespass America Festival with six other bands beginning in July: Five Finger Death Punch, Trivium, Killswitch Engage, Battlecross, Emmure, and Pop Evil. More on this tomorrow for the Video Of The Week. Enjoy!
We are at the time of year to reflect upon at what albums really made an impression on me – it’s time for the mid-year best of list. We are half way through a pretty amazing year as far as metal is concerned. Quite a few veteran bands out there released some stellar music…with one New Jersey band topping my list so far. One thing I love about blogging with fellow metalheads is that we all love metal equally, but definitely have a fondness for different subgenres. Both Matt’s and Mark’s lists are great and unique and give me something to listen to…some of that stuff I haven’t heard yet. I hope I can offer the same in return. Here is my Top 5 list for mid-year 2012.
New Jersey’s God Forbid are set to release Equilibrium on March 26th; their sixth studio album since 1999. The song of the week, Don’t Tell Me What To Dream, is track off the forthcoming album. If this isn’t killer enough, God Forbid will support their latest effort touring with New Jersey legends Overkill. The month-long tour will hit both coasts. Hopefully, they will make it to a venue near you. Here are the rest of the dates and an accompanying YouTube clip. Have a great week!
