The Bitter Forgiven was formed in 2008 and is based out of Denver CO. The bands sound is original and unique most say there are hints of Tool Alice in Chains and Godsmack with some Killswitch Engage aggression added. If you like heavy guitars an ass pounding rhythm section and blasting vocals then give them a listen. The musicians in the band are extremely diverse and can take many different approaches and angles when it comes to song writing keeping their outlook fresh and their song structure unpredictable.
The Bitter Forgivens CD catalog includes their first album titled Micawber which was released in April 2010. Currently the band is in the studio writing and recording the next album which is yet to be titled and is highly anticipated by fans and friends.
