Tobias Forge Allergic to Anything
At the beginning of the interview, Tobias Forge says, “A band that I don’t think gets mentioned a lot that’s definitely up my sleeve in terms of what I like would be Negative Plane. Obviously, an old band that sort of went a little bit through a resurgence a few years ago was Gorguts. Their Colored Sands record was really cool.”
He also continued, “My taste is very old school. Ever since like ’94 when nu-metal started to show its face, I’ve been allergic to anything that suggests nu-metal, and unfortunately, that has been like the everlasting genre from like ’94 to today.” Tobias Forge added, “The bands that I like are usually bands that sound like an ’87 sort of death metal band. Unfortunately. I hate to be negative. But I like a lot of other music. I like a lot of different rocks. I’m more open when it comes to that.”
Last year, he gave an interview on Zane Lowe on Apple Music 1. He was said, Metal should be conservative. Also, he added people need to continue old school metal style. Otherwise, they do not do metal. They will make pop.
Tobias Forge explained, “When it comes to metal, I’m quite conservative in my taste. Now I don’t like a lot of new things and the only new death metal bands I ever liked the last 20 years have always been very backward, sort of traditional, but throughout my whole life, I’ve always been very embracive of pop music,” he admitted. “Every Ghost record has always been influenced by a lot of… I’d say almost anything that I listen to.”
