History

Forbidden was originally known as Forbidden Evil, under which name they recorded several demo tapes. Forbidden Evil is also the name of their first official album. The line up until 1989 was Russ Anderson (vocals), Craig Locicero and Glen Alvelais (guitars), Matt Camacho (bass) and Paul Bostaph (drums). In 1990, Glen Alvelais left the band (joining Testament two years later), his spot filled by Tim Calvert. They released their second studio record Twisted Into Form, which had a moodier feel than their debut, with some "depressing"/doom metal touches. Internal problems in the band caused a line-up change once again, with drummer Paul Bostaph (who left to take over from Dave Lombardo in Slayer) replaced by Steve Jacobs. After this Forbidden released two more albums, however with no real label support the band disintegrated after the albums Distortion and Green. They reformed as a one-off for Chuck Billy's Thrash of the Titans benefit concert, under their original name Forbidden Evil.
