God Forbid - IV: Constitution of Treason

Posted on Sunday, June 12, 2011

I don’t really comprehend why these guys had to fuck with their formula. Reject the Sickness blew me away when I heard it, and Determination was among the most solid albums of 2001. And while Gone Forever had its moments, I started to notice the band going in a different direction, a direction leading to this album, which is not good at all. Musically the group is still on. They still play rifftastic Euro-laced Thrashcore, and Baron Davis’ screams are still all-pro. It’s these awful Radio Rock clean vocals. Used in moderation earlier on, but now they rear their ugly head on every single fucking track! An example of how bad its gotten: earlier this fall I was browsing at a record store where, unbeknownst to me, this album was playing. I honestly thought I was listening to fucking Sevendust! I’ll always cherish God Forbid’s first two proper albums, but when I can’t tell them from felchmasters like Sevendust, it’s time to give up the ghost. Perhaps this album’s title is a subtle “fuck you”?
