GOD FORBID DEBUTS EARTHSBLOOD IN SAN ANTONIO
Our very own Dallas Coyle and his brother Doc of the mighty God Forbid made the long trip all the way from New Jersey to San Antonio, Texas, to premiere their long-awaited new CD release, Earthsblood.
Hosted by S.A. metal institution Robb Chavez of Robb’s Metal Works, the Coyle brothers stopped into the Cabo Grille to chat with fans, answer questions from the press, and drink beers while spinning their new record.
It was also the first meeting between two MetalSucks contributors (MS bloggers Dallas Coyle and Corey Mitchell pictured above with Doc Coyle and Antonia “Toni” Garcia of OMCTV).
The Coyles talked about the theme of Earthsblood, how they came about the artwork for the new record, their upcoming tours with Lamb of God and Mayhem Fest, the improbability of running their own record label, the effect an Obama presidency may or may not have on their career, and their sheer, unadulterated love for metal.
Interestingly, most people were not really listening to the record as they were more excited about talking to the guys in the band. Dallas and Doc really do appreciate their fans and make sure to go out of their way to make them feel comfortable.
I want to wish Dallas, Doc, and God Forbid the best of luck as they head out on the road for at least the next six months to support Earthsblood. Be sure you do your part and support God Forbid wherever and whenever possible. [Listen to the full album and pre-order the special Earthsblood package (w/ t-shirt for only $16!) -Ed.]
