God Forbid

God Forbid is a metalcore quintet from East Brunswick, New Jersey, formed in 1998.


Building up a following in the late 1990s by touring with bands such as GWAR, Nile, Cradle of Filth and Candiria, their first full album Reject the Sickness was released by 9 Volt Records in 1999. This album received heavy rotation from WSOU-FM in the New York City area and the band was subsequently signed to Century Media Records, releasing the album Determination in 2001. They played on the MTV2 Headbanger's Ball tour with Shadows Fall and Lamb of God. In 2004, they released Gone Forever, which increased their profile considerably and earned them a spot on Ozzfest. The next year, they released IV: Constitution of Treason, a concept album about the end of the world. In 2005-2006 they supported Trivium on their UK tour along with Mendeed & Bloodsimple. In late 2006 and early 2007 they headlined the Chains of Humanity tour featuring Goatwhore, Mnemic, The Human Abstract, Byzantine, and Arsis. In 2006, God Forbid's "To The Fallen Hero," won the Independent Music Award for Best Hard Rock/Heavy Metal Song. They are currently making a DVD which will be out by January 2008.
