GOD FORBID Guitarist Says New Album Will Be 'More Diverse And More Commercially Viable'

April 4, 2008

GOD FORBID guitarist Dallas Coyle has written the latest entry for his weekly column on MetalSucks, "The Hard R." In this installment, Dallas talks about bands' constant (and ridiculous) claims that their new material is their heaviest yet, and relates it to the new GOD FORBID material. An excerpt from the blog follows:

"How many of us have seen the news where bands are informing their fans the direction of their new album? If they are metal, it is always the same bullshit. 'This new record is the fastest, heaviest, most aggressive, most brutal thing we've ever done. We can't wait for you to hear it! Your faces will melt off and you'll eat your own brains, 'OH MY GOD! It's so heavy!'

"I'm not afraid of telling people what the real deal is with GOD FORBID. You can quote me on this, Blabbermouth: 'Our new album is not heavier, it is not more aggressive! In fact, you'll probably hate it more than our other records!' The fifth GF record is more diverse and more commercially viable than our other records. We didn't do it on purpose. This just happens to be the songs we wrote this time around. There isn't one song under five minutes. We have two that are over seven minutes long and one that's ten minutes long. There may only be eight songs on the record when we're done. Not enough for you? Fuck off, it's our record!
