This is the pinnacle of bay area thrash. Along with Testaments release Souls of Black, and Megadeaths Rust in Peace, 1990 turned out to be a hell of a year for thrash. This album containes highly melodic, fast, technical thrash and Russ Anderson's voice is honed to perfection for this one. Every single song is a winner but of course most people will probably love "step by step" and "out of body" the best. If you love thrash, this is a god @#%^ must have. Everyone knows Forbidden rules, and this was their best album.

It's not often that I find myself sitting down to review an album with thougts of Bobby Burns echoing in my head. In fact, it's not ever that I find myself doing so, until now. When I pulled my dust laden copy of Twisted Into Form out of the disintegrating old refrigerator box where I keep all the albums I no longer listen to, I fully expected to slag it off and delight in the cries of shock, dismay and frustrated impotence sure to emanate from the ranks of the slighted speed metal fanboys. But, apparently, my memory failed me, because this is, if not a brilliant album, then one that cetainly aspires gamely to excellence. So, once again, the best laid schemes o' mice an' men...

Twisted Into Form is in many ways the archetypal late model speed metal album. Nothing here is particularly novel, instead, Forbidden offers a refined and deepened exploration of the ideas of Metallica, Artillery, Testament, Anthrax and other predescessors. Here, the band excels by refurbishing the hoary discipline of speed metal through applying a greater musical awareness and technical savvy to the tried and true techniques of the genre.

What is truly impressive about Twisted Into Form is the degree to which its more formal elements are integrated fully into core of the album's sound, rather than serving merely as embellishment or distraction. The band's use of a harmonizing lead guitar is especially laudable: they neither apply it constantly and indiscriminately as a gimmick, nor do they use it sparingly and predictably just to spruce up intros and bridges. Instead, it is applied strategically throughout songs, often at dissonant intervals to enhance the sense of furious, frustrated alienation that lies at the heart of most of these (often quite literate) songs.

I have owned this CD since it was released, so mine has a lot of millage on it. It's too bad not many have heard of Forbidden - even those into thrash/metal. Back in the day this was super-underground. You either heard about it from friends or you frequented the record stores every week and looked through the new releases which appeared to be thrash or heavy ass metal. This for me was one such album. Forbidden kicks so much ass! Ripiin' guitar riffs and a kick ass drummer in Paul Bostaph. He lays down some sick syncopated beets which were almost unheard of in the Thrash genre. Russ also has a great voice for Thrash. Not too throaty or high-pitched (I listen to King Diamond or Overkill if I'm in the mood for falsetto vocals). Every track on this album is awesome. High energy, aggressive, good rhythm, great solos... My only gripe is the mastering job, but hell, this is underground metal and the budgets were never more than minimal. You can't go wrong with this one, but if you're reading this, you probably already know that. This is solidly in my Top-10 all-time favorite Thrash albums with the likes of Anthrax's 'Among the Living', Slayer's 'Reign in Blood', Megadeth's 'Peace Sells', Testaments' "The Legacy", etc. It's that damn good!

another bay area band that really knew how to shred! this is the best Forbidden CD of them all IMHO. The guitar riffs are just downright awesome. Imagine Slayer more technical, MELODIC, with some cool clean vocals that punch! Musically these guys know their instruments well. They know how to write good thrash songs that will make you wanna mosh in your bedroom! Guitar parts are cool and the drumming is right on and tight! Best seek this one out!

If you are a Thrash Metal fan (Exodus, Anthrax), this is a MUST HAVE CD. Start to finish it doesn't disappoint. The vocals may not be everyone's favorite, but I personally really like them. Awesome drumming and guitar work. It touches on some religious negativity, but that doesn't both many people nowadays, just be warned.
