Warbringer
Warbringer
Hardly satisfied with any of the new trends in the metal scene, we decided to take a step back and prove that old-school heavy metal is just as fucking heavy, loud, and shreds twice as hard as anything to date.
Formed in late 2004, we set out to show the local metal scene that Warbringer was a force to be reckoned with, playing no-holds barred rip-roaring thrash metal. After a 4-song demo and ton...s of shows with fellow ragers like Merciless Death, Fueled By Fire, Hirax, Dekapitator, and Toxic Holocaust, we released our "One by One the Wicked Fall" EP in October of 2006. Later that year we had the privilege of signing to one of the most respected heavy metal labels in the world, Century Media.
We recorded our debut album, "War Without End" in the fall of '07 with Mr. Bill Metoyer (Slayer, Fates Warning, Sacred Reich, Hallows Eve) and went on to appear on a few compilation albums such as Speed Kills...Again, Metal For the Masses 6 and Thrashing Like a Maniac comp with some of the best acts around.
We've been honing our live show into a violent thrash assault touring the US with Exodus, Goatwhore and Arsis in January/February; Nile, Suicide Silence, The Faceless and Unexpect in March/April; Europe with Napalm Death and Suffocation in May/June, a week of headline shows in the UK with Gama Bomb, and back to Europe in August with Sworn Enemy and All Shall Perish, which kicked off with our performance at Wacken Open Air, another US/Canadian tour with Finntroll and finally in Oct. supporting Overkill. What a year!
We'll take Nov. and Dec. off completing the writing of the second album and plan to record in January before we go back out on tour. So far we're booked from end of Jan - end of May in the US with back to back tours with Soilwork/Darkane and Kreator/Exodus with plans to spend most of the summer in Europe again.
Thanks to all of you for your continued support, you guys fucking rule!
THRASH OR BE THRASHED FUCKERS!

The band was formed in 2004 in Arvika, a town in Sweden far away from everything. With the release of their debut album “Into The Night“ in late 2008, ENFORCER created a record which bucked the trend of overproduced, clean plastic albums with tons of tracks and triggered drums. “Into The Night“ (info | shop) was a pure metal record, standing in the tradition of acts such as Exciter, Agent Steel and Anvil. ENFORCER were heavily touring through Europe and the US – along with acts such as Portrait and Cauldron, plus performing at many festivals like the German „Bang Your Head“ and „Keep It True“ festivals along with the legendary „Sweden Rock“ festival among others.



With the extreme live energy and the overwhelming feedback in their mind, ENFORCER wrote the follow up record “Diamonds“ in 2009, entering the studio by the end of the year with renown Swedish producer Rikard Lofgren. And indeed the five metal heads managed to top their iconic debut. “Diamonds“ (info | shop) delivered a heavy metal album the way it is intended to sound!
With this masterpiece written, ENFORCER toured through Europe along with Airbourne and Bullet, followed by more festival appearances at „Metal Camp“ in Slovenia and „Bloodstock Open Air“ and „Sonisphere“ in the UK. Recently, ENFORCER were invited to open up for legendary NWOBHM act Angel Witch in the UK, before entering the studio once again to record their third album, which is called “Death By Fire“ (info | shop) and will be released through their new label Nuclear Blast in February 2013.

Once again, the album has less than 40 minutes of playing time – a trademark of ENFORCER for a certain reason: “We write all music for the vinyl format and a normal LP can never be longer than 19 minutes on each side without losing sound quality. None of my favorite records are longer than 39 minutes anyway. It’s the perfect length both in that sense as well as keeping up an interest from the listener throughout the whole record. The record is made for listening to as an entirety and when it’s over the listener should be craving for more, not less. We don’t write any fillers.”
From a musical side, “Death By Fire” stands in the same direction as the previous two records, but even more focused, with strong melodies, outstanding riffs and a voice, which is strong as steel.
Olof comments: “We decided to do the ultimate Enforcer record rather than trying to break new grounds. Take all elements that make us stand out from all other bands of today and exaggerate it 1000 times. Behold. DEATH BY FIRE!”
