3.0 out of 5 stars Hit or Miss June 2 2004
Format:Audio CD
I defiantly consider God Forbid to be one of my favorite bands.
That being said, I have a couple of problems with this album. First, I could have really done without the clean vocals. Yet, this is more of a problem with modern metal core than God Forbid. A vocalist should not croon unless they really have the voice for it. Unfortunately, none of the guys in God Forbid have a good emo core voice and the clean vocals just come up short.
Secondly, I think the album chugs a bit at points. Basically there is a little much Nu-Metal bland riffing as opposed to clear metal core riffing. This is really nitpicking though.
Now, for the good points of the album this album does present some solid distorted vocals that really jump out of your speaker. Furthermore, there is some real quality in the music, consisting of some solid breakdown riffing, good solos, and thundering bass/drums.
The album probably deserves a higher rating than 3 but it does not distinguish itself from typical metal core enough to warrant a higher rating. I do however recommend purchasing this album especially since you can get it for around 12 to 13 bucks. I enjoy listening to it at night while web surfing or working on papers.

4.0 out of 5 stars one of their more mature recordings May 22 2004
Format:Audio CD
its hard to beleive that a year ago this band was thinking of calling it quits. while the extra time may have helped them sort out personal problems it also gave them time to focus on a stronger recording. while not breaking any new boundaries for either the hardcore or metal scenes it does show that god forbid knows their musical history. while beautifully melding hardcore and metal with strong breakdowns, screaming vocals and great guitar solos they have also taken some influence from older bands. it wouldnt be surprising if you hear an influence of latter day Testament and some vocal tracks reminiscent of Mike Patton. thankfully they make sure to avoid emphasising the swedish metal sound they used to rely on so often. god frobid still stands out among bands whose whole careers are based on copying At The Gates but this record provides some more diversity than their contemporaries' releases. since they retain their strong riffs, hardcore background and throat tearing vocals dont expect too much growth but be ready for some changes.

4.0 out of 5 stars damn good but I'm not blown away May 19 2004
Format:Audio CD
people who are saying this is a masterpiece or amazing are either extreme fan boys or kidding themselves. There has been a comebackof sorts of metal in america with bands like shadows fall, as i lay dying, killswitch engage, hatebreed getting metal to the masses and God Forbid joines their ranks. As with the abovie mentioned bands, God Forbid gives you solid musianship, a quick catchy album, heavy guitar tons, heavy singing and pretty good lyrics.
but that's it. there isn't anything super special about this band. Other than shadows fall (who are just so great i don't even know how to explain it) god forbid and all the other bigger american metal bands seem to have the same big problem: they concentrate on making such perfect, solid music that they leave out a lot of emotion and "wow" factor.
Don't get me wrong, i do like this album ( in fact, it's on my best of 2004 list already) and I sound like i'm ripping it, and maybe in a way i am, but I just don't think it's super amazing. Just super good and solid.
with that being said, this album has very clear production, cool crunch guitar riffs and good screaming vocals. Track 2 features a awesome sense of melody in the middle of the song. and despite the shortness of the tracks, a lot of them do have an "epic" feel which is pretty cool and one of the better things about this band. and unlike some of their counterparts, they do have some pretty awesome solos. and of course, there is some really good melody lines. The drumming is also above average, even better than most of the new american metal band, evne shadows fall. ALso, the clean vocals don't sound whiny, which is an often problem with bands of this type.

4.0 out of 5 stars Say it like it is and it shall be... May 17 2004
Format:Audio CD
GF's "Determination" was a great album, it flowed well and was quite heavy. The band goes from a brutal and simplistic style of metal, to more melodic parts, all the way up to semi-classic soloing. But for all of it's afterthought-intricacies and songwriting prowess... God Forbid, as a machine, still is not able to thrill the senses with variation... The overall tone of the album isn't as cheesy as thier counterparts(Shadows Fall, Killswitch) and hell... it's not like any fan is expecting a top 40 release here. My point is GF continues to come across like Earth Crisis, wait hold on let me explain! It seems to me one or two members just aren't improving thier skills, and thier sound is left in stasis between albums. Much of "Gone Forever" is a monotone mess, and is just too similar to past albums. To hear the screamer start crooning, I'd say it's no great surprise. The riffs seem pulled from an session identical to that of "Determination" as is the same with the general sound of the recording. So the hype is not true. It's a great CD, but thier previous ones were rawer, and were a lot less concerned with fitting in with other groups. GF is on tour with Machine Head right now, so yeah... That's worth checking out. If you're more into Slayer than you are into Chimaira, I'd check out thier previous two CD's first. And vice verse.

A kick ass album from God Forbid but a bit overrated. They do make it seem better than it is. Its good album but it doesn't live up to all the talk about it. Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Taking metal back to its roots
OK enough with all of the genre labels people throw on this type of music (e.g. metalcore, nu metal, hardcore, etc.) This is simply an absolutely brutal HEAVY METAL record. Read more
