Enforcer are the leaders of a new generation of metal bands that remain true to the roots of metal in terms of setting, sound and appearance. A hint towards modern bands, as they were particularly mid-00s-years popular.
The band was founded in 2004 in Arvika, a small town in Sweden far away from everything. With the release of their debut album “Into The Night” late 2008, Enforcer stated their opposition to the trend of over-produced, plastic-sounding albums with tons of tracks and triggered drums. “Into The Night” was a pure metal album in the tradition of acts such as Exciter, Agent Steel and Anvil.

Enforcer toured through Europe and the USA alongside acts like Portrait and Cauldron, and also performed at festivals such as Bang Your Head, Keep It True or the legendary Sweden Rock just to name a few. With this incredible live energy and an overwhelming feedback in mind, Enforcer wrote in 2009 the successor of “Diamonds” and went back to the studio with famous Swedish producer Rikard Lofgren at the end of the year. And the five metalheads actually managed to outdo their debut. “Diamonds” appears like a heavy metal album that sounds exactly as it should sound!

The third album of Enforcer “Death By Fire” came out in 2013 via their new label Nuclear Blast. Musically, “Death By Fire” follows the same way as its two predecessors, but is more focused and provides strong melodies, outstanding riffs and a voice of steel.
Olof says: “We decided to record the ultimate Enforcer album instead of exploring new ways. Take all the elements that distinguish us from all the other current bands and blow it on 1000 times. Watch out! DEATH BY FIRE!”

Enforcer began to work on new songs for “From Beyond” directly after their headliner tour through Europe, influenced by Eastern European metal bands of the late 80s and early 90s. Since the writing and composing process was ongoing, the new masterpiece of the quartet quickly came out.

The first official live-DVD by Enforcer “Live By Fire is released in November 2015, including material from their gig in Tokyo during the 2013 tour and in addition a CD containing recordings from their show in Athens. Guitarist / vocalist Olof Wikstrand commented about the new output: 
“I am extremely happy to be able to release official video and audio footage from shows that truly capture the band in a way we like it, rather than video clips in poor quality on the net. That is the only truth and I hope you’ll enjoy it! We also had the opportunity to record three new songs that will be released exclusively with this material. Stay tuned!“
