Forbidden Posts New Song, "Dragging My Casket" Online

Bay Area thrash metal veterans Forbidden have posted another new song online from their forthcoming new studio album, "Omega Wave." You can check it out by heading to their official Myspace. The album will be released in Europe on October 22nd and on October 26th in North America. This will be their first studio album since 1997's, "Green."

Guitarist Craig Locicero stated: "Being able to easily describe a song like ‘Dragging My Casket’ is damn near impossible. The lyrical concept was originally brought in by Matt. That in itself is a little bit different for us. He was inspired by the lyrical content that Russ and I had up to that point. Matt sees the world a little bit differently then the rest of us, myself in particular. He came into practice with some lyrics pointed with puzzlement towards people that believe humanity is headed towards it's own undoing. Not that he doesn't think it's a possibility, but Matt just won't go there for the most part. He wondered how a person with a family and a kid that loves life as much as I do could hold all of this knowledge as closely as I do without getting depressed. Hell, I do not even know!

"That got Russ and I into thinking about it and we took Matt's seed and planted it. How can you describe these feelings of overwhelming despair that so many people feel today? We imagined what a young person that's barely had a chance to experience life feels with all of the information over-load that we have today. Between the lies and the truth are billions of opinions that make a sea of uneasiness. It's tough living these days. ‘Dragging My Casket’ tries to paint that picture. There are so many emotions that one gets while trying to digest all of this regurgitated information and make our own opinion and interpretations of this reality. It tells that story from one persons point of view. In my mind, that is a young person trying to figure out were they fit in today's chaotic society.

"Musically, ‘Dragging My Casket’ song twists and turns more then any other Forbidden song to date. It's faster, more melodic, heavier, thrashier, dark and beautiful all at different points. Vocally, Russ sounds incredible and really gets into his part as the story unfolds. It's amazing to listen to one man sing starting on 1 and jumping to 10 like no other singer! Some of the best stuff he's ever done is on Omega Wave and this is the centerpiece of the record.

"I guess I could have just said ‘Dragging My Casket’ is a fucking epic!”
