Full press release about the new record after the jump…
The epic and grandiose musical landscape of the new GOD FORBID album proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that this group have paved a new path out from the stagnant metalcore scene and the future looks to be a very bright one. The stunning new effort, Earthsblood, blends together the perfect amount of brutality, melodies and utter catchiness against a wall of sonic excess and pummeling groove-laden riffs.
Frontman Byron Davis steps up his game to new heights and delivers his most aggressive and angst-ridden performance yet, while the dynamic guitar tandem composed of Dallas and Doc Coyle shred with precision and tenacity to deliver captivating harmonies that scream to the heavens. The backbone of the band, bassist John Outcalt and drummer Corey Piece, lock in a rhythm section that beats the listener into submission giving room for the remaining members to show off their remarkable musical prowess.
Earthsblood is set for a February 24th North American release and February 16th throughout Europe. The group have posted a new audio sampler composed of sections of a few new tracks.
Doc Coyle (guitars, vocals) further states: “Even though it’s three months until the release date, the God Forbid camp thought it would be a great idea to give a little sneak peak of the actual music from Earthsblood to whet your appetites. This sampler is meant to give some insight into the diverse nature and depth of the album. We hope this makes all the fans as excited as we are for the record!”
Earthsblood was produced by Eric Rachel (ATREYU) with Christian Olde Wolbers (FEAR FACTORY, THREAT SIGNAL) handling all vocal production and Jens Bogren (OPETH) on mixing duties. This is an entirely new God Forbid that have matured beyond their years and are now more focused than ever before. The depth and diversity showcased on this new album is easily going to position them as of one the most innovative bands within the genre.
