Keeping horror-based guitar-rock alive, Forbidden Dimension opens its third full-length release with a blast of heavy-metal bombast that churns into “My Family Curse”, a rocketing ditty about mayhem and blood.
The trio has been recently bolstered by the addition of former Huevos Rancheros bassist Graham Evans (now known as Bloody Holly), and on the two-minute raveup, “Tiptoe Thru the Tombstones”, Forbidden Dimension hits the same level of rip-roaring instrumental dexterity as its fellow Calgarians.
The groovy/grisly artwork by singer-guitarist Tom Bagley (aka Jackson Phibes) is an added bonus.
