FORBIDDEN TO Re-unite!!!

Legendary San Francisco Bay Area thrashers FORBIDDEN will reunite for several shows in 2008. Russ Anderson (vocals), Craig Locicero (guitar), Paul Bostaph (drums), Matt Camacho (bass) and Glen Alvelais (guitar) will bring something that so many of their peers, old-school fans and especially the younger generation of fans that never got to see FORBIDDEN live have been asking for: a true FORBIDDEN reunion!

"We want to show everyone what we used to do was as relevant and powerful as anybody else of that era," Locicero said in a statement released to BLABBERMOUTH.NET. "The gravity of our influence is really dawning on us now and we're very humbled. We owe it in turn back to those who supported our influenced us in the past. We'll be concentrating mostly on 'Forbidden Evil' [1988] and 'Twisted into Form' [1990] material to give the people what they want. The time is right and it's gonna be a lot of fun. 2008 will also be the 20th anniversary for the release 'Forbidden Evil'. It'll be VERY HEAVY and we're all excited to get started."

Added drummer Paul Bostaph (ex-SLAYER, TESTAMENT): "Though out the years I've been asked about FORBIDDEN by many people. Fans and friends alike have been wanting to see us play live again. I'm very happy to see this become a reality! I've been honored to play in some great bands. To play with Craig, Glenn, Matt and Russ (a truly great vocalist) again will be a longtime wish come true. I hope FORBIDDEN fans get a kick outta this as much as I will!"

FORBIDDEN is looking to book one Bay Area show for late January early February and look into some festivals in Europe, Japan and Australia starting in late May. These will all be exclusive gigs and there are no plans for a full-fledged tour, at least not in the immediate future. Locicero says, "We'll put our blood and guts into it and give it all we've got! Get ready to have your heads ripped off, motherfuckers!!!"


FORBIDDEN! EVIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIL :rocker: :rocker: :rocker: :rocker: :rocker: :rocker: :rocker: :rocker:

Why not? Every other washed up old metal band that was never very good in the first place is doing it.

I'll agree with you about all of the washed up metal bands getting back together. However, these guys kicked ass!

I haven't listened to them forever, but they were an awesome thrash band "back in the day." I'll probably have to go check them out if they tour the midwest.

I don't know, everyone? I can't think of a band I listened to in the 80s that hasn't gotten back together 20 years later and tried to rekindle the old magic/cashflow. (Well except for the few that I am continually astounded to learn never gave it up at all, like Dio and Helloween.)

But for one example off the top of my head:

Yeah, but I'm pretty confident Onslaught can still bring it live, which is the only thing that matters for the vast majority of these old bands anyways. They've ceased to be creatively vital, so they focus on the classic shit, nothing wrong with that. A few (Maiden, Motorhead, Exodus, some others) are still thankfully putting out amazing new stuff, but at least 75% of all band whose heyday came in the 80's haven't been doing much exciting stuff in recent years.
