Swedish Heavy Metal band ENFORCER have inked a European deal with EARACHE RECORDS. The band's new album, DIAMONDS, is scheduled for release in Europe on 24th May and in the rest of the world a day later via HEAVY ARTILLERY RECORDS.
Olof Wikstrand commented:
"After the great success of INTO THE NIGHT, we now take things a few steps further with the next album. This time it feels great to have a European dedicated and hard working label on board. I'm really excited to see what this end up like and I'm also proud of being a part of EARACHE RECORDS."
Dan Tobin commented:
"EARACHE RECORDS is proud to welcome one of the most exciting new bands on the scene onto the label's roster. ENFORCER's brand of streetwise Heavy Metal is as exciting as anything I've heard from a young band, and we look forward to helping them take steps towards the big league. DIAMONDS is a superb way to start their march to the top."
Influenced as much by the Speed Metal bands of the late 80's as Traditional NWOBHM and cult Swedish demos, ENFORCER is truly a Metal powerhouse.
With 2008's INTO THE NIGHT earning a deserved entry in Terrorizer Magazine's Top 100 "Albums Of The Decade", ENFORCER returns with its highly anticipated sophomore album, DIAMONDS, which picks up where its predecessor left off - one foot firmly in the past, paying respects to IRON MAIDEN and JUDAS PRIEST alike, but augmenting its craft with modern flair and technical wizardry, highlighted by the production of renowned Swedish producer Rikard Lofgren.
Thanks to its appearance on EARACHE RECORDS's HEAVY METAL KILLERS compilation, ENFORCER kicked open the floodgates for the return of Traditional Heavy Metal, paving the way for many other young bands to follow. With critical acclaim pouring in from fans and the international music press, ENFORCER wasted no time taking their show on the road gaining rabid fans at every stop, touring across Europe and North America.
