I have been a fan of God Forbid ever since the release of 'Gone Forever' in 2004. 2005's 'Constitution of Treason' and 2009's 'Earthsblood' showcased further steps in the evolution of the band, and now 'Equilibrium' picks up right where 'Earthsblood' left off. One of my biggest issues with GF albums in the past, has been filler, and this issue has been more than addressed with this newest release. In fact, for the first time since becoming a GF fan, I can honestly say that I do not skip a single track on the album(not to say I might not in the future). This album is a perfect blend of brutality, melody, rhythm and even a touch of experimentation. GF is labeled as a Metalcore band, but I find them to continually distance themselves from the predictable formula that is Metalcore more than any other band in the genre(Lamb of god, Unearth, Killswitch, Chimaira ETC). Do yourself a favor, GET THIS ALBUM! It does not disappoint.

UPDATE - The future is here and after a solid week of listening to this album, my opinion has changed slightly. There are now a few tracks that I skip(with the biggest offender being Scraping the walls)but all in all I still find it to be a solid album and up there with 'IV' for God Forbids best.

This is God Forbid's best album to date. I have been a long time fan since the Gone Forever days and I have enjoyed all of their releases for the most part (sans a few tracks here and there). What you're getting here with Equilibrium isn't anything ground breaking on God Forbid's part, but this album is great and incredibly rich in all of its flavors - much like a well crafted beer.

Thankfully, it's not JUST a metalcore release, and that's what I think is the most pleasing part. There is a touch of everything in this album and God Forbid does a wonderful job of melding it all together to create very memorable and head banging tracks. If you're into the whole melodic side of metal, this album will sing to you for sure. The riffs are generally above average and some are even exceptional. I think they really nailed the guitar tones. Chuggy, crunchy, heavy but still crisp and audible. The album has its share of breakdowns (always well placed and never cheesy), solos, clean vocals and keys - a bit for everyone.

In short, if you're looking for a good metal album with no filler, this will make a great addition to your collection. Every track is worth a listen and some even a few more.

After listening to the previews I bought this mp3 download hoping for something new and exciting, that the actual songs would have much more to offer than the 15 second clip. I was disappointed. Although there definitely are good riffs here and there (mostly what you hear on the previews), this album fails to maintain the momentum it could have.

New Jersey's God Forbid share a very strong resemblance to the likes of Lamb Of God, Mastodon, Chimaira, and Shadows Fall, and not just because all five bands were an integral part in the "New Wave Of American Heavy Metal" scene. But because G.F., like those other four groups, seems to always make it a clear-cut point to say (with each and every release) that they would probably rather die (or at least dissolve) before the recorded a bad, or even mediocre album.

So while even though God Forbid's fifth full-length, 2012's "Equilibrium," continues down the same path originally blazed by the band on their last proper album, 2009's "Earth's Blood," there is much to like about it. And if you like deathcore, melodeath, and metalcore-influenced thrash with strong grooves and even stronger hooks coursing throughout, you are sure to agree. Also know to expect tons and tons of positively amazing riffage, exceptional solos, slamming skins, and fat bass lines to be present, here. Thus, on the whole, "Equilibrium" falls somewhere between Pantera, Slayer, In Flames, Arch Enemy, Metallica, and Testament.

The album opens with a piece of straight-up deathcore in "Don't Tell Me What To Dream," which is long on Hatebreed-flavored tough-guy breakdowns. The only difference is that this song follows much more complex song structuring than the average piece of generic death/hardcore. And it is immediately followed-up by a more prototypical God Forbid ripper in "My Rebirth," a white-hot modern thrash melee. It is a really brutal affair, but it does traffic in some good melodic leads and brief yet effective clean backing vocals (complete with Judas Priest-y, high, harmonic falsetto singing). And a couple of slow and ripping guitar solos make an appearance, here, too.

I've been following God Forbid since Reject the Sickness. If you are a fan, this album belongs in your collection. Everything about it is phenomenal. The guitar work is just blazing and Byrons vocals sound better than ever. I'd question the sanity of anyone that wasn't completely blown away by this album right from the start.

I had actually forgotten about God Forbid over the years. They did a great job with Equilibrium however. It reminds me of a heavier more polished version of Gone Forever, which is a good thing. Gone Forever was my favorite God Forbid album until I listened to this one. A Few Good Men is the stand out track to me.
