5.0 out of 5 stars An epic album, in every way possible. April 13, 2004
Format:Audio CD
When you watch a band from the very beginning, you hope and dream of what they can do as a band. With the release of "Gone Forever," God Forbid approach near perfection in the world of hard rock and metal. They have now, simply put, placed themselves in the elite of today as well as becoming one of the brighest hopes of tomorrow.
On "Gone Forever," there's not a momentum breaking track on the album; the sequence is simply outstanding. The album balances its peaks and valleys with near precision until you are left pounded to the turf by "Judge the Blood" and its crushing fade-out. This is the kind of detailed thought that went into this album, and it pays off many times over.
To listen to this album in your car or on headphones is a treat like no other. You can put on nearly every heavy record of the last few years and feel the difference Eric Rachel, Trax East Studio and the Brothers Coyle made on this album. It is a sonic monster that pounds its soul right into yours with every listen. And to bring all the great sounds and performances together, the band called upon Colin Richardson (Carcass, you name it...) to handle the mix. This proved to be the perfect compliment as Colin helped put it all together into one powerful wall of sound. It's got the old school vibe presented in the new school way and sometimes the stereo just can't get loud enough for this album. It's that good.
Overall, the performances and writing here are beyond top notch; they are creatively written, well-thought out, energetic and reaking of talent. To know the leaps and bounds God Forbid made on this record is to not only embrace the moment, but it has many of us lining up for what they have in store for the world the next time around.
These guys are scary good. Check it out.

5.0 out of 5 stars Witness the Forbidden Ones March 25, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Now I have a really big CD collection, and I can stack many bands better than this one. But God Forbid is now among my favorite new bands with this incredible album Gone Forever. Of course the main tracks that make this bad boy great are "Antihero" and "Gone Forever", but the album goes way beyond. "Force-Fed" is a nice opening song with a fast tempo to a catchy chorus. And "Better Days" is a nice track following "Antihero", the way the track is put together is awesome. The rest of the songs are really great, and if more God Forbid albums are like "Gone Forever", God Forbid could be one of the greatest bands of all.

God Forbid, these guys kick mayor whiplash!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars The First True Contender For Metal Album of 2004 February 24, 2004
Format:Audio CD
God Forbid have really taken it to the next level with this. With a run on MTV2's Headbangers Ball tour this past Fall, and with an upcoming stint on the Ozzfest backed by the power of this new record, you can bet that 2004 is the year that God Forbid moves into the upper echelon of the New Wave of American Heavy Metal.
"Gone Forever" is a major step for GF. They still have the same caustic MetalCore fury as "Determination", only they have added some clean vocal choruses and melodies to the mix (90% of the vocals are still traditional throaty hardcore style). This alone, regardless of quality of music, will no doubt have the ...cough... "true metal fans" up in arms screaming "SELLOUT!". I've never pigeonholed myself into believing that clean vocals = sellouts. First of all this music is crushingly heavy, you'll never hear it on the radio. The music is every bit as brutal as ever, only it is tempered with a few moments of melodic vocals which only help to diversify the sound. Bascially if this turns you off to God Forbid, it is your loss. "Gone Forever" may even convert a few clean vocal haters.
God Forbid to me, on this record, sound like an upgraded version of Lamb of God. Take LoG's bombastic drum beats, destructive thrash riffs, crushing breakdowns, and to the mix add some vintage In Flames dual harmony riffery and soloing, then just a dash, just a DASH, of Killswitch Engage's vocal accessibility and you will have "Gone Forever" by God Forbid.
This is my favorite record of 2004 so far, and here's to hoping that Ozzfest and this record brings them some well deserved attention. I would normally pick a few standout tracks, but I think each of the 9 tracks on this record represent it well, so I'll say ANY of the brilliant first 4 tracks will give you a good idea of what to expect.

5.0 out of 5 stars Taking metal back to its roots July 15, 2004
Format:Audio CD
OK enough with all of the genre labels people throw on this type of music (e.g. metalcore, nu metal, hardcore, etc.) This is simply an absolutely brutal HEAVY METAL record. You can't help but get a little nostalgic when you listen to it if you're a fan of pure metal like Slayer and Pantera like I am. Great guitar solos are found on almost every song, which is rare these days. If you are a real heavy metal fan, this record is perfect for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent February 24, 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I'll say it right off the bat. There are very few scheduled releases in 2004 that will have the opportunity to topple this masterpiece(most notably Killswitch Engage and Atreyu) that is "Gone Forever." While the album is a huge departure from "Determination," "Gone Forever" is better in nearly every aspect. The songwriting is stronger, the vocal patterns are better, Doc and Dallas Coyle's guitar work has improved, and the band have honed their sound to perfection. Yes, there is singing on this album, and yes, I believe that is a good thing. Some can cry "Sellout" all they want but these songs are as brutal as they are melodic. The singing on this album has taken God Forbid's music to another level. These songs aren't just good. Their epic and memorable. The production is top notch and crystal clear. Highlight songs include "Force-Fed," "Precious Lie," and my personal favorite "Judge The Blood." If your a fan of bands like Killswitch Engage or other melodic metalcore bands, then this is the album for you. It's the best record I've heard this year so far and will easily be in my top 5 of the year and thats saying alot since it's not even March yet. Highly recommended.
