Forbidden Issues New Studio Recording Update

Reactivated San Francisco Bay Area thrashers Forbidden continue their work at Sonic Room/Audio Voyage Studios in Livermore, California recording their fifth studio album, "Omega Wave." Guitarist Steve Smyth checked in with another studio update:

“Day 4: Things were starting to flow now. I decided to move on to a song called ‘Dragging My Casket.’ This song has a lot of twists and turns in it, and I made it a point to get as twisted as I could. A very dark and entrancing-sounding intro opens this song, after which we move into a completely opposite and (hopefully to you all!) crazier sounding second section, which I couldn’t resist trying to bring my progressive influences into, turning out a few ideas that had the guys in the room tripping and laughing! Ha ha! The rest of the song feels equally as killer to me, so I won’t give you too much more here, but suffice to say I’m looking forward to hearing it when it’s done!

"We moved on to the song ‘Hopenosis’ next. The faithful fans have already heard a version of this in demo form, and believe me, when were talking about playing a new song live last year, I was pushing for us to do ‘Adapt Or Die’ and ‘Hopenosis’ as well! Those who have heard the demo version have heard only a skeleton of that song’s potential, I’ll tell you! The album version of the track is heavy as fuck, especially with the tone and production on Mark [Hernandez]’s drums that Tim Narducci and Craig [Locicero] got! That really drove me on this song, trying to deliver exactly what I was feeling coming from Mark and Craig’s performances here. A lot of moodiness and heaviness and thrashiness in this song, and I can’t wait to tell you about the solo! Onward!”
