Sasha Horn, newly crowned drummer for reunited Bay Area thrash metal band FORBIDDEN (once home to well-known skinsman Paul Bostaph), has been featured in the February 2012 NAMM issue of DRUM! Magazine.  In it, Sasha discusses his near life-long admiration of the band, his audition, and the importance of chemistry.

FORBIDDEN’s current line-up – which features original vocalist Russ Anderson, founding member/guitarist Craig Locicero, original bassist Matt Camacho, Steve Smyth on guitar, and Sasha Horn on drums – will debut at the upcoming, nearly sold-out Bonded By Baloff: A Decade Of Remembrance event at the Oakland Metro Operahouse on Saturday, February 4th, 2012 commemorating the 10-year anniversary of former EXODUS singer Paul “Pavel” Baloff’s passing.

About his upcoming debut performance, Sasha shares:

“There is no better place to cut my teeth and sharpen my claws than in front of the ones who pioneered the genre, and in front of a hometown crowd filled to the brim with old school die-hards.  It is an honor and a privilege to be able to call the Bonded By Baloff gig my first with FORBIDDEN. This entire experience should prove to be heavier than time.”


All remaining advanced tickets for Bonded By Baloff can be purchased at this location.
