For the ones used to the “old Forbidden”, this album is different from the previous ones. Since the ex-drum player Paul Bostaph went to Slayer, Forbidden became havier, more distorted, and with lower vocal sounds. The lyrics are not as explicit as they were; moreover, Russ Anderson (vocals) is singing better, with no more “screems” and sometimes, with a voice that reminds Chuck Billy (Testament). The guitar solos are amazingly hard and the riffs are complicated. The new drummer is as good as the old one, but in my opinion, Steve Jacobs has more freedom to create now.
