God Forbid Didn’t Miss a Step In This Pro-Shot Footage of Their First Show Back in Nine Years


You wouldn’t know it from the footage below, but it had been nearly a decade since God Forbid had last played to a live crowd when they absolutely demolished the Blue Ridge Rock Fest this past September. And while it rained all around them, the New Jersey band still fucking brought it. Weather conditions be damned.

With their next show coming up on January 6 at the Starland Ballroom in Sayreville, NJ — a homecoming gig if we’d ever heard of one — the band released pro-shot footage of part of their Blue Ridge Rock Fest performance. In the clip below, you can see the band play “Chains of Humanity,” off the insanely killer record IV: Constitution of Treason.

God Forbid are easily one of the most underrated bands of the New Wave of American Heavy Metal scene, so it’s great to see and hear them killing it all these years later. You can bet your ass I’ll be at next week’s show. If you can get yourself to Sayreville, you should be there too. It’s promising to be a night to remember.

If you can’t make the Jersey show though, don’t despair. They’ll have a second show at the Worcester Palladium in Worcester, MA on January 7.
