Has no one learned from Hatebreed’s mistakes? Or Hawthorne Heights’ mistakes? Or Thursday’s mistakes?
I figured God Forbid would have at least heard about Hatebreed’s problems with Victory Records, but who knows? Maybe times have changed over there.
The New Brunswick, New Jersey-based thrash-metal act didn’t just sign a label deal, but a merchandising and publishing deal too.
“We are so excited to be a part of the Victory family,” says drummer Corey Pierce. “We are very proud to bring our music too all the maniacs out there who are fans of the band as well as this label. We look forward to starting a powerful partnership which will bring a new energy to the metal world.”
I hope it works out for them, because I like God Forbid. I just know history, and that shit almost always repeats itself.
