Hailing from Arvika, Sweden, Enforcer play a brand of New Wave Of British Heavy Metal with an injection of punk; as if the last forty years of music haven’t happened. Some may call it “old school”, but more cynical metal aficionados may even go as far as to call it devoid of any creativity or individual spark. From every pentatonic riff from the thrash lick library to the cycles of Hetfield-meets-Halford vocal wails, it becomes impossible to decipher just where Enforcer begin and the most influential of heavy metal’s prodigies end. Founded in 2004, Enforcer describe themselves as being devotees of “real metal”. They’ve since gathered four albums under their belt, with their new album ‘From Beyond’ continuing down the path created by 2013’s ‘Death By Fire’. With the writing having began in March last year during a brief period of down-time from touring, the band only a short window of time to forge the content in ‘From Beyond’; which perhaps casts understanding over the weak content littered across the album’s performance.
Metal Wani’s Editor In Chief Owais ‘Vitek’ Nabi had a chat with Enforcer frontman/guitarist Olof Wikstrand. He discusses new album “From Beyond”, songwriting, vocals, 80’s speed metal scene, upcoming tours and much more.
