Hellenic Hard Power Metal FORBIDDEN SEED is back with their 2nd album – Strong Vocals, Catchy Riffs & Thundering Rhythm Section!
Forbidden Seed are excited to announce the release of their second album entitled: “The Grand Masquerade”. Two years after their debut album “From Sand to Eternity”, Forbidden Seed are ready to release a heavier, darker and more mature album that combines the bands melodic elements with the heaviness of today’s sound. This album is a major step forward from his predecessor both in style and sound that features fourteen new and powerful compositions.
“The Grand Masquerade” features guest appearances from the Amazing Yannis Papadopoulos (Beast in Black, ex – Wardrum), Guitar Phenomenon Kosta Vreto (Wardrum, Jaded Star) and the Powerful Sverd T Soth (Among Ruins, Battleroar) and Alexandros Pappandreou (Desert Near The End). The drums have been recorded at Prassein Aloga Studio by Kosta Vreto, all rhythm guitars at Eventide Studio by Constantin Maris, all bass guitars at Groovy Charm by Nik Danielos and all vocals at Eventide Studio by Akis Prasinikas.
All lead guitars and re-amps recorded at LittleBig and Wardrum studios by Kosta Vreto. The album was produced/mixed and mastered by Kosta Vreto at LittleBig Studio. The cover artwork and inlays has been designed by Jim Evgenidis at “Icon Filmworx”.

2018 is a new year that will see the release of the strongest material and heaviest sound in decades. For this record, John wanted to get back to the sound Leviathan had at the end of the 90’s. The only way to achieve that goal would be to have powerful drums. John was honored to work with his all time favorite drummer, Mark Zonder. Mark played drums on all six tracks.
The departure of Jeff Ward left a very difficult role to be filled. John looked all around the world to find a vocalist that could step up and bring something new to the band. Raphael Gazal from Sao Paulo, Brazil was hired to record the lead vocals for the album. To handle the mixing and mastering tasks on this new album, John found a great local studio in the beautiful mountains of Colorado called Evergroove.
