Forbidden Signs With Nuclear Blast Records

Bay Area thrash metal veterans Forbidden has announced that they have signed a new record deal with German based label Nuclear Blast. A message from the band reads as follows:

"We are very proud to announce that Forbidden has signed to Nuclear Blast Records! Ultimately, we all knew that there is NO better label in the world to handle Metal and bring it to the masses with authority. For the last year, we have been intensely working on our craft while re-examining our past with a perspective we'd never had before. Our vision is clear and we know exactly who and what we are today. Forbidden is in an amazing creative space and we can't wait for everyone to hear it! We began recording on March 1st. We must thank Jaap Wagemaker and everyone else at Nuclear Blast for making their enthusiasm known to us since we've committed to writing this record. Also, there are so many other amazing friends that helped us along the way and we appreciate everything you've done for us to get Forbidden back into a position of strength. If you feel in your bones that you are one of them, then you definitely are! Thank you all so much."

Added Nuclear Blast A&R Manager Jaap Wagemaker: "We are totally stoked to announce that Forbidden has inked a deal with Nuclear Blast!! It is no secret that the staff of Nuclear Blast has a soft spot for thrash metal! We all grew up here with classics such as Forbidden Evil and Twisted into Form! I am sure you can imagine that we were totally thrilled when we heard the news that Forbidden were coming back and after seeing them live several times since then and seeing them doing a smoking rendition of Twisted into Form it was totally clear to us! Forbidden needs a new home and that home is called Nuclear Blast! This feeling became even bigger after Craig had sent us the two new songs last year! Needless to say that a dream is coming true! The future belongs to Forbidden and together with Nuclear Blast, we will bring the band back on the metal map! What the future will bring? I cannot tell you! Cause it is….. Forbidden!"

Agreed 100%, Nekromaniac. They're signing all the greats. They just snatched Kreator like a month ago.

Forbidden's an awesome band! Looking forward to hear what they'll do next
