FORBIDDEN: Comment on First Tour in 15 Years

November 3rd, 2010
Forbidden 2010

Forbidden 2010

Reactivated San Francisco Bay Area thrashers FORBIDDEN are set to embark on their first tour in 15 years, this time as direct support to Overkill! Immediately proceeding the trek the band will continue on their own headlining tour with Evile, Gamma Bomb, and Bonded By Blood.

“It’s been 15 years since FORBIDDEN has actually toured in North America,“ commented an enthusiastic Craig Locicero. “That blows my fucking mind to say it! The funny thing is that even when we did tour here, we never properly did it. It was always a very short cycle with little or no support from the labels. Well, times have changed and so has FORBIDDEN’s situation. With Nuclear Blast having our backs and properly promoting and supporting Omega Wave,  I feel a sense of hope for this band that we have never felt before. Strange feeling, really. But we will take it.

Our goal is to get better every night and eventually become the live band that we never got to be. That takes dedication and a lot of hard work. We’re digging in commiting to just that.

We hope our fans will appreciate us as much as we appreciate them. See you all on the road soon!“

Demonica – Vocalist Klaus Hyr

 

Interviewed by: Anders Sandvall

Thanks to Tom Hack at Massacre Records for setting up this interview

Thanks to Massacre Records for the promo pictures of the band.

Demonica-press-clean_1.jpg

 

Demonica is the name of a new American/Danish thrash metal act that includes the famous Hank Shermann known from Mercyful Fate amongst others. The band also includes members from Forbidden but I had the pleasure of talking with Artillery member Klaus Hyr. I was supposed to speak with Mr Sherman but when he couldn’t find the time did Mr Hyr did the interview instead. Some of the issues that came up were the past present and the future of Demonica and how it was to record the brand new album DEMONSTROUS.

FORBIDDEN: New Track Online

September 27th, 2010
Forbidden - Omega Wave

Forbidden - Omega Wave

Reactivated San Francisco Bay Area thrashers FORBIDDEN have uploaded the track “Forsaken At The Gates” to their official MySpace page.

“’Forsaken At The Gates’ is FORBIDDEN‘s new thrash anthem for the 2010’s and beyond,” commented guitarist Craig Locicero. “If we could go back in a time machine to when we called it a day in 1997, there still would have been no way that we could have written ‘Forsaken…” back then. We needed the distance and hind-site to write this record and had to get a grip on what the hell FORBIDDEN was all about when we started. Our vision is clear.  We are a Thrash Metal band! ‘Forsaken At The Gates’ says it all.

If I were to compare ‘Forsaken At The Gates’ to any of our old songs, it would be ‘March Into Fire’, which was one of the first songs that I’d ever written in my life. Ironically, ‘Forsaken…’ was the last song we’d written for Omega Wave. Funny how things work.

As far as the song itself, Mark was a fucking beast when we tracked it! I knew we had a monster on the first take, great energy and sense of urgency in his performance. It made one hell of a spine to connect all of the other moving parts to. Everyone blasted through their tracks with the same sense of urgency too. Playing those riffs, my blood pumps harder then in any other song I’ve played on. It was an intense session to track and Matt cruises through the entire thing like a bulldozer! The solo section brings me back to the good ‘ol days when trade-offs were all over the classic metal records we all love. I really love playing and writing with Steve, he makes me so much better and I think we make a great team.

After that, it’s Russ that’s next fucking level! Tim and I got him fired up and locked him behind the glass until he sounded as crazed as they lyrics are intended to convey. The song itself is about turning away the masses from the numerous underground shelters around the planet that will try to seek protection from any natural or unnatural disaster that would effect all of us on the surface.

The main line of the song says ‘Corpses laid out for the Rapture, New World Order buried in it’s tomb.’ In other words, if the surface isn’t worth living on and the powers that be decide who lives in a canned air bunker for future generations to come…let them rot down there, that’s not a world worth living in!”
Vocalist Russ Anderson added:
“Looking back on recording our first album Forbidden Evil and recording Omega Wave, there really is no comparison. During the recording of Forbidden Evil, we were in a time crunch and I sang the whole album in about one and a half days, impossible some could say, but  true. I was happy with the results because that gave the album it’s rawness, that in my opinion goes down in history as true as a thrash album gets.

Omega Wave was a slower recording process.  I worked with Craig and Tim as my right hand men and they know me. At times I think they were trying to ‘slap me around’ a little before the heavy songs like ‘Forsaken At The Gates’ to get me to approach the song with true aggression. You really should not be feeling love and flowers approaching a song like this, not to say that was what I was thinking, but it helps to bring out the aggression of the song through the vocals. ’Forsaken At The Gates’ was easier for me than some of the others, only because it was the last song I recorded and was done in one session.

By the time I was on the last of the songs I had a lot of fire to breathe and did not want to stop. ‘I love to record!’  As far as my voice being deeper or better, I don’t know,  I tried to compliment each song and be one with it, and to do that, you must be one with your voice. That is something I have strived for over the years and hope it comes across.

I think that vocals can change or get better over time, like a fine wine, for instance if you listen back to James Hetfield when he did Kill ‘Em All he most defiantly has a more adolescent voice than, on say …And Justice For All.  Vocals are touchy things and definitely unpredictable from day to day . The only way I have found to have any control over it is to approach every song with its intended emotion which is also the key to a good performance no matter how your voice is holding up that day.  Point being, it’s a human instrument that mirrors the soul .

I truly gave it my all on Omega Wave and I hope everyone will enjoy it as much as I enjoyed recording it . Hope to see you all on our United States tour that kicks off on the East Coast November 4th, ending on the West Coast on December 11th, 2010.

Thank you in advance to those that support FORBIDDEN and buy the album.”

Omega Wave, FORBIDDEN’s fifth studio album after a 13-year recording hiatus, will be released in Europe on October 22nd and on October 26th in North America.  It was recorded at Sonic Room/Audio Voyage Studios in Livermore, California, produced by FORBIDDEN guitarist / songwriter Craig Locicero with Tim Narducci, and mixed by Sean Beavan (Slayer, Marilyn Manson, Nine Inch Nails).

FORBIDDEN: OMEGA WAVE ARTWORK REVEALED

September 7th, 2010
FORBIDDEN - OMEGA WAVE

FORBIDDEN - OMEGA WAVE

Reactivated San Francisco Bay Area thrashers FORBIDDEN have debuted the artwork to their new studio album, Omega Wave, on their official MySpace page.

FORBIDDEN guitarist / songwriter Craig Locicero checks in about his collaborative process with artist Kent Mathieu, the visual elements that can be found in the album’s artwork, and  his concern for the future of the human race:

“As soon as FORBIDDEN committed to writing a new record, I wondered where Kent Mathieu was.  I’d always felt like Forbidden Evil and Twisted Into Form were pretty iconic album covers… when things like that actually seemed to matter.

“Then, the good people at Nuclear Blast actually located Kent!  I got pretty excited and reached out to him immediately.  He was equally excited to hear from us, too.  The only real direction I gave Kent was to somehow tie the past into the future.  Find a way to make the two skulls [from Forbidden Evil’s artwork] vital again.  He had worked up about 12 sketches all kinds of variously cool stuff.  Out of all of the pictures he sent me, I liked the way one of them was laid out because of it’s simplicity.  After thinking about it for a long while, I had a concept for Kent to work with. The Omega Wave concept. The title wasn’t decided until I had a good idea for the cover. “

“I don’t want to over-explain the actual picture because there is enough symbolism for everyone to interpret everything differently.  That is always a plus, in my book. What I can tell you is that the skull in the center is based upon the crystal skull of Belize.  This skull was found at some of the pyramid ruins in two perfect pieces, jawbone and upper cranium. It was always quite a mystery, but some years later Hewlett Packard scientists did extensive tests on the skull and found many anomalies.

“One of them was that there is no way, even with our most modern technology, that we could cut into the crystal the way this skull was formed.  It would shatter with any instrument we have available, even today. Another thing was the fact that no matter what temperature the skull was placed in, the skull’s temperature would stay almost exactly the same.  Scientists even believe the skull holds information that they could not tap into, like a giant computer chip with an impenetrable code.

“So I got to thinking: Does this skull – and the other ones found throughout the most ancient places on Earth – hold something that we would need to know to possibly save ourselves? This is not an entirely new concept, but it hit me pretty hard.  What could we learn about ourselves that may save us at this all-important juncture for the human race?

“It seems as if we’ve reached our Omega stage as a civilization.  Meaning, we as people seem to be in a hurry to reach some sort of ending… possibly all self-manifested by accepting some sort of pre-determined fate.  Or possibly just pawns in a game that was played out before and will be repeated again and again in other times and dimensions.  So Omega Wave is part science fact and part from my imagination.

“Kent Mathieu is a artistic genius who created something that respects this concept, as well as FORBIDDEN’s past, present and future!  All of this with one very strong hand-painted picture.  That’s right, no computer manipulation whatsoever.  Something else we can all be proud of!  We hope you approve.”

Omega Wave, FORBIDDEN’s fifth studio album after a 13-year recording hiatus, will be released in Europe on October 22nd and on October 26th in North America.  It was recorded at Sonic Room/Audio Voyage Studios in Livermore, California, produced by FORBIDDEN guitarist / songwriter Craig Locicero with Tim Narducci, and mixed by Sean Beavan (Slayer, Marilyn Manson, Nine Inch Nails).

Forbidden – Guitarist Craig Locicero and vocalist Russ Andersson

July 19th, 2009

374_logo.jpg

Guitarist Craig Locicero and vocalist Russ Andersson

Interview and pics by Arto Lehtinen

Transcription by Duke

The legendary Forbidden from the SF Bay Area did a European tour consisting of several metal festivals including Sweden Rock 2009. I had the great opportunity of speaking to both guitarist Craig Locicero and vocalist Russ Andersson. Forbidden had undergone some line-up changes as Steve Smyth has stepped in to replace Glen Alvelais. However, both Locicero and Andersson recalled a little bit about the heyday of Forbidden over 20 years ago and of course talked about their future plans.

PAUL BOSTAPH of Exodus, ex-Slayer

January 25th, 2007

PAUL BOSTAPH

Paul Bostaph is a true professional and one of the best drummers on today’s metal music scene. Paul’s career started in the late eighties as a member of U.S thrashers Forbidden and over the years he has played with such bands as Testament, Systematic and Slayer for which he recorded four albums between 1993- 2003. In 2005 Paul joined legendary Bay Area band Exodus and later in the same year he made his recording debut with the band on SHOVEL HEADED KILL MACHINE. Exodus has now been on tour for over a year and last December the band returned to Helsinki. I met Paul on their tour bus prior to their show at Club Tavastia and here are the results of our interesting discussion.

Glen Alvelais – ex-Forbidden, ex-Testament, LD/50

August 28th, 2005

Interview with Glen Alvelais (ex-Forbidden, ex-Testament, currently in LD/50)

Interviewed in Sept. 2000 by EvilG

Forbidden’s first two studio albums – Forbidden Evil and Twisted Into Form REALLY do something for me. Forbidden have to be one of the more under-rated of the bay area thrash bands to have existed. Critics seem to leave Forbidden out of things and concentrate on other bands when referring to the bay area thrash scene. If you ask me, I think that Forbidden are simply amazing! One of the guitarists, who was a part of Forbidden for their first album and their live EP – Raw Evil Live At The Dynamo is Glen Alvelais. I was thrilled to get he opportunity to pose the following questions to him.
