I love this CD!!…I put this one right up there with Metallicas’ “Kill’em All”, and Exodus’ “Bonded By Blood” for the greatest debut releases in Heavy Metal.Forbidden to me, is a mix between MaidenExodus. The vocals are very Maidenisc, and the music is pure speed and thrash. There is not one single filler on this CD. It’s short, but every song is head-banging heaven. Forbidden released “Twisted….” after this one, and it’s very decent….But “Forbidden Evil” will always remain one of my favorite. It’s what you would call a true “Diamond In The Ruff”. If your a fan of thrash, speed, or just a fan of good old fashion metal, you’ll enjoy this!!!
