ENFORCER Signs With NUCLEAR BLAST RECORDS
Swedish metallers ENFORCER have inked a deal with Nuclear Blast Records. The band's new album, "Death By Fire", will be released on February 1, 2013.
Commented ENFORCER vocalist/guitarist Olof Wikstrand: "It feels great to finally have finished this long-awaited third ENFORCER record. Now with Nuclear Blast on board, we're gonna make sure to spread it to every corner of this planet. You can expect nothing but the total, self-defining ENFORCER record."
Added Nuclear Blast head of A&R Andy Siry: "We’ve been following the career of ENFORCER since their debut album, because from there on, they formed the spearhead of a new, young generation of traditionally influenced metal. We're impressed by the band's consequent and authentic appearance, whether on stage, concerning their sound, their image and so on. This reminds of the atmosphere of departure and the rebellion, heavy metal represented at the beginning of the '80s. ENFORCER have got that special something, represent their ideals and they know what they want. We're looking forward to the upcoming CD and a long successful cooperation."
ENFORCER's second album, "Diamonds", was released in May 2010 in Europe by Earache Records and in the rest of the world through Heavy Artillery.
Having released its debut album, "Into the Night", in November 2008, 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 to the road for their first European and American tours as well as a litany of appearances at many of Europe's most highly regarded festivals.
