5.0 out of 5 stars God Forbid return with their best ever album!!, 2 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Equilibrium (Audio CD)
i have to admit for me things didn't look good for god forbid, Dallis Coyle one of the bands founders quit,they changed record labels, and their last effort earthsblood though not terrible wasn't up to much, what a pleasant surprise!

it's been just under a week but this is shaping up to be album of the year! if this isn't in my top 5 at the end of the year then i can't what to hear the albums that will.

Having started out as a death metal band with their debut "reject the sickness", turning to melodic death metal with 2001's "determination" then moving on to metalcore with "gone forever" in 2004. here everything God Forbid have done in the past but what didn't work has been filed away and what did work is here shedloads! the riffs, the melody, the big choruses this time the band have hit the nail on the head. transcending sub genre's and making a near close to perfect modern metal album (time will only tell if it becomes a classic) the band have always been somewhat overlooked but hopefully this time they will get the recognition they deserve.

worth noting is the presence of new guitarist Matt Wickland (formally of Himsa) i think in him the band have found their adrian smith, but all members are on fire on this album and every song has the perfect measure of what each song needs.

highlights include "my rebirth", "scraping the walls" "equilibrium" "cornered" and "Where we come from", if your new to god forbid you can't go wrong starting here, but also try "determination" or "gone forever"
their dvd is one of the best music dvd's going due to amount of content for your money too
