· Founded in 2004 in the secluded town of Arvika, Sweden, Enforcer have established themselves as the leaders of the new generation of metal bands, devoted to the roots of real metal in every conceivable way, whether it’s spirit, sound or authenticity.
· After unleashing their debut ‘Into The Night’ (2008) and sophomore attempt ‘Diamonds’ (2009), in addition to their relentless and energy-driven touring onslaughts, Enforcer found their destined path with the 2013 album ‘Death By Fire’. 2015 sees the release of the fourth Enforcer record, entitled ‘From Beyond’.
· “The intention of the song writing of ‘From Beyond’ was to continue the path we started with ‘Death By Fire’. To exaggerate our own sound and to write direct and uncompromising metal songs. In opposite to most of the other new bands, we don’t decide to play a certain type of music and therefore limit ourselves in the song writing. We do whatever we want and feel totally free in composing songs,” said Enforcer vocalist and guitarist Olof Wikstrand.
· Inspired by eastern European metal bands from the late 80s and early 90s, such as Credo, Magnit, Pokolgep and Kat, the bulk of the songwriting for ‘From Beyond’ took place in March 2014, right after the band returned from their European headlining tour. Compared to its predecessor ‘Death By Fire’ the album has a much darker and something of an anti-existential atmosphere.
· “In the beginning of our lyrics were more concentrated on teenage fantasies about living wild and screwing girls. But the older you get and the more you experience of all these fantasies you had as a kid, the more you realize how earthly it is,” Olof explains.
· Just as ‘Death By Fire’, all of the production, recording, mixing and mastering of ‘From Beyond’ was handled by Olof and Jonas Wikstrand. This way, the band make sure they will get exactly the type of sound and production that’s needed for an Enforcer album.
