So the guys from the swedish heavy metal band Enforcer released the artwork and tracklist a few days ago

We can finally present the details on our new album; FROM BEYOND

Swedish Heavy Metal act ENFORCER has finished the recordings of their upcoming new album, called »From Beyond«.
This fourth ENFORCER record will contain ten new songs, produced, mixed and mastered by the band on their own.
The album will be out on February 27th (EU), March 2nd (UK) and March 10th (US). Pre-sales start today.

Vocalist and guitar player Olof Wikstrand comments:

"»From Beyond« is faster, heavier, louder, darker and more vicious all at the same time without losing a tiny bit of what ENFORCER stand for.
A fist in the face of all current trends and a stake through the throat of modernity. Total metal!"

»From Beyond« will be released on a limited edition digipak, as well as on vinyl in different colors.
01. Destroyer
02. Undying Evil
03. From Beyond
04. One With Fire
05. Below The Slumber
06. Hungry They Will Come
07. The Banshee
08. Farewell
09. Hell Will Follow
10. Mask Of Red Death


Here's the new track titled Undying Evil

What do you think? Someone is excited about the new song?

Dude: If you tour, will you bring out other musicians? Use tapes? Clone yourselves?

Solid song, will buy album!
I like the Yngwie-isms in the solo section.

The cover is a mix of Winger's s/t and Mekong Delta's s/t.

Do the words Heavy Metal mean anything to you other than buttcore, technical progressive assgrind or the like?

Definitely a ripping track. "Death By Fire" was a ridiculously heaping slab of straight ahead metal. Even my friend who is not much of metalhead was into it. Will be getting "From Beyond" for sure.

I was just listening to Death By Fire this morning and thinking I can't wait to hear the next one! This is definitely pretty similar apart from the fact that the glorious bass tone is gone :(

Holysmokes, that was great! The chorus is so catchy that it's lodged in my head. The solo stood out quite well and it feels slightly different (good different) from the previous stuff. I for one am looking forward to this.

Olof's vocals have improved a ton. Hopefully he doesn't lose any aggression in his voice for the rest of the album, but that's just my thoughts after hearing Undying Evil.

Either way, that's still the catchy as fuck Enforcer I know and love.

The vocals are definitely much better than before! The song is cool too.

However, it feels like they tried to hide away the obvious title... Creature Of Night :-D

I usually don't care much about lyrics but the lyrics in this song felt a bit forced to throw in any mysterious words ever possible...

anyone who thinks the 80's metal sound is outdated needs to listen to that above track.

Because it's $%#&! awesome.

This is the correct way to channel the classic 80's speed metal sound!

I can kinda agree with the lyrics (and music in general) being forced. Or at least derivative. That's not really a bad thing since it's done so well though. But I mean it might as well be Death by Fire2.0 from the looks of it man. Hopefully the new record will be full of quality.

Edit: do love the artwork.

I agree; it sounds very Death By Fire 2.0, which isn't bad necessarily, but I'm not sure it's what I want from them.

I'm starting to understand the mentality of oldnoobs nowadays, because modern bands that just shamelessly rip off great 80s cliches (Striker and Enforcer especially) seem to be in like the 90th percentile in terms of current metal. Basically that just means this track is really good and I'm impressed that they seem to only get better with each album.

This was a good song, but is the band planning on going in the evil direction for the future? As much as I enjoyed the last album, Diamonds is way better. I'd like them to go back to that sound.

Also, I don't really think his vocals are better now. It sort of sounds like he's trying too hard at times (ex: the intro). Still, he's at least got a relatively unique voice, which is good enough for me.

These guys still sound too polished and safe for me to really go nuts about it, but that was a pretty cool tune. Maybe time to give em more of a chance again.

Huh, I had no idea they had a new one almost ready to be released. Blabbermouth didn't cover this for some reason. Track was alright. Really dug the last album.

they always had a very old school sound, but the new track is imo too classic heavy metal - i liked the happy speed metalness of the last album, and i'm not hearing that on this track
