Forbidden  


First known as Forbidden Evil, and once featuring Machine Head guitarist Robb Flynn in its ranks, Forbidden was one of the prototypical 80's San Francisco thrash bands, with their first two albums being amongst the best in the genre. For some reason they faltered after those first two albums, with label issues being part of the problem, as both Distortion and Green seemed to be poorly promoted and hard to find at the time. Eventually they broke up, with everyone in the group at the time moving on to other bands (Tim Calvert to Nevermore, Russ Anderson to Parking Lot Prophets, and the others forming Manmade God).

The Forbidden Evil lineup has recently announced intentions to reunite for some shows in 2008.
