High Voltage Records and Aussie Assault Promotions are proud to announce:

(USA) Heavy Weights Forbidden are heading to our shores and coming to tear a hole of thrash right though the guts of Perth headbang

FORBIDDEN was part of San Francisco's Thrash Metal, movement innovated in the Bay Area, where legendary bands such as Metallica, Exodus, Testament, Death Angel, and FORBIDDEN changed the style of Metal music, making the San Francisco Bay Area synonymous with the word Thrash.

In the last several years, the band has seen something of a worldwide resurgence with a whole new generation of inspiring musicians and some of rock and metal's most relevant bands specifically sighting FORBIDDEN, as a direct influence to their music. This new generation, along with the tens of thousands of die hard fans has been turning up at their shows, inundating their my-space site, and demanding new material from Forbidden. The band could no longer ignore their fans and in the summer of 2008, and 2009, they decided to do several dozen reunion shows marking appearances on some of Europe's biggest Rock Festivals and several special club dates throughout Europe, Japan, and North America.

Originally, formed as "Forbidden Evil" in 1985, and shortly thereafter solidified the lineup of Russ Anderson (Vocals), Rob Flynn (guitar), Craig Locicero (guitar), Paul Bostaph (drums), and Matt Camacho (Bass). Prior to Forbidden Evil signing its first recording contract, Robb Flynn departed and was replaced by Glenn Avelias, and within several years Robb would move onto front one of Metals biggest bands Machine Head.

Gene "The Atomic Clock" Hoglan (ex-DARK ANGEL, ex-STRAPPING YOUNG LAD, FEAR FACTORY, DETHKLOK) filled in for FORBIDDEN drummer Mark Hernandez at the band's recent appearances at Inferno Festival in Norway and Metropole Ruhr Fest in Germany.

"Omega Wave", the latest album from FORBIDDEN, sold around 950 copies in the United States in its first week of release. The CD landed at position No. 27 on the Top New Artist Albums (Heatseekers) chart, which lists the best-selling albums by new and developing artists, defined as those who have never appeared in the Top 100 of The Billboard 200.

"Omega Wave" was released in Europe on October 22, 2010 and in North America on October 26, 2010 via Nuclear Blast Records. It was recorded at Sonic Room/Audio Voyage Studios in Livermore, California, produced by FORBIDDEN guitarist/songwriter Craig Locicero with Tim Narducci, and mixed by Sean Beavan (SLAYER, MARILYN MANSON, NINE INCH NAILS).

FORBIDDEN's current lineup consists of Russ Anderson on vocals, Craig Locicero on guitar, Steve Smyth on guitar, Matt Camacho on bass and Mark Hernandez on drums.

Forbidden will be playing @ The Rosemount Hotel on Sunday 31st July 2011
