Guitarist Steve Smyth of Bay Area thrash metal band FORBIDDEN has issued the following update:

“I am happy to announce that all of my websites have been completely revamped by my good friend and webmaster, Asgeir Mickelson. My main goal with these website revamps was and is to be able to stay connected with everyone, everywhere, as much as I can.

I now have a YouTube channel, which I am steadily collecting and uploading material and content to from my career to date, and plan to make this a more interactive endeavor as well, by posting a ‘riff of the week’ or a ‘lick of the week’ video, so stay tuned!

In addition to the revamps to my personal website and MySpace as well, you can also visit my Twitter page, fan Facebook page. Through all of these sites, I promise to keep in touch and keep you up to date on all that’s happening in my musical world!

Lots of touring dates all over the world coming up with Forbidden, plus some exciting news on the instructional front, as well as news and updates on my new UK based band FIREHEAD, and work on the second album forthcoming from THE ESSENESS PROJECT."
