Old school metal masters Forbidden are smashing their way into Australia this July for the very first time. Set to play 6 massive shows in support of their latest album 'Omega Wave', (Nuclear Blast) Forbidden fans have been waiting over a decade since their last offering, and Australian fans have waited over 20 years for them to make their way Down Under.
Kings of the second wave of the Bay Area Thrash scene, Forbidden were most popular during the late 80's and early 90's for their own brand of technical thrash metal infusing odd signature timing with melodies, making them one of the most original metal bands of the time.
With former members later joining some of the most successful metal bands in the world including Machine Head, Exodus, Testament, Nevermore, Slayer, and Death to name a few, Forbidden have been the breeding ground for some of the world’s greats including Rob Flynn, Paul Bostoph and Gene Hoglan.
The current line-up of Craig Locicero: Guitar, Russ Anderson: Vocals, Matt Camacho: Bass, Mark Hernandez: Drums (Vio-lence) and Steve Smyth: Guitar (Exodus/Nevermore) see's original members Locicero and Anderson team up once again with long time member Camacho, originally for some reunion shows, and now as a permanent line up.
Metal fans from all over Australia are set to witness some of the best thrash metal they will ever set eyes and ears on!
