Arvika, Sweden based speed metal group Enforcer came to San Diego last night with one goal in mind- to rip our heads off like Vikings. They completed that task and my ears are still ringing a day later. Formed in Sweden in 2004- Enforcer plays what some refer to as the New Wave Of Traditional Heavy Metal (NWOTHM), or Old School metal, if you will. These guys play with a ferocity like no other. From opening number to the end, these guys give you 110%, in your face. They are the second Swedish band I have photographed in the past two weeks. (Apologies in advance for not getting images of drummer Jonas Wikstrand.) There seems to be a higher caliber of talent coming out of Sweden in the past decade. Razor sharp guitars, professionalism above most bands and stage presence that keeps your attention. Enforcer is currently on tour in the USA with Dark Tranquility, Swallow the Sun and Starkill. Their tour ends in Houston, TX on December 7th. Catch them live- you will not be disappointed!
