Album Review – Forbidden “Omega Wave” 2010
Bust out your high-tops and skinny blacks, because Forbidden’s Omega Wave hits like a bomb made of 1991, ridden by a T-800 and delivered from orbit by Ellen Ripley. All riffs are furiously picked, the drums are fast without blast and the vocals a pleasantly non-ironic wail reminiscent of mid-career Ozzy. In short, it’s a pure thrash record. Twelve tracks, no dogs.
Omega Wave is so good it’s made me a Forbidden fan. I’d always considered them strictly Tier 2, but this album places them firmly in the vanguard of thrash revival. 8 out of 10
