God Forbid announces new album title
Official press release: There is no doubt that one of the most anticipated new albums of 2009 is the new God Forbid full-length offering, which is tentatively set for a February release through Century Media Records. This explosive, ground breaking disc entitled Earthsblood, sees the band take their performance to the next level and is easily the defining release of their already heralded career. Doc Coyle (guitars, vocals) further comments: "The title Earthsblood came to me after watching the film There Will Be Blood. What is the price of ambition? Is the blood of our bodies and the blood of the earth one and the same? With the current energy crisis, and its relation to many of the military conflicts worldwide, there has been a global, collective consciousness that has emerged in regards to the interdependence between humankind and the planet in which we inhabit. Coincidentally, the lyrics that Byron Davis and Dallas Coyle had written meshed with these revelations perfectly. This isn't a preachy, trendy, 'hip to be green' album, nor is it a concept album. It's just an abstract observation." Earthsblood was produced by Eric Rachel (Atreyu) with Christian Olde Wolbers (Fear Factory) handling all vocal tracking. 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.
