There are three bands, and one rapper, named FORBIDDEN.
1) Forbidden was part of the second wave of thrash metal bands which arose from the bay area thrash scene (along with Testament, Death Angel, Vio-Lence, etc.).
Through-out the 1980’s the thrash metal scene was bursting with talent and among the rhythmic collection a band that refused to be labeled in with the so called bay area sound. They were much more than just the next thrash band, they used odd signatures and melodies to create an original style all their own.
