Blurring the lines between thrash, death metal and elements of hardcore, Enforced bring you a stomping sound that surely will kick your teeth down your throat. Retaliation is the name of their three track demo, and nearly immediately they bring the pain and punishment with the opener Born Lost. Born Lost, much like its two counterparts is a powerful and thrashing mad anthem that gets your brain bashing against your skull in no time. Each track is a blasting force to be reckoned with as they each storm through your speakers to slash and gnash away at your ear drums. As short as this demo is with only three tracks to its name, it packs more than a punch as it leaves you breathless and bloodied at the end of it all.
Enforced stomps you in to submission with their no holds barred approach. From track one to track three you are greeted by gritty and ever pressing thrash noise that leaves your head spinning and your neck snapped. From the drop of the first gnarled note, Enforced barrels through your speakers greeting you with an all out vicious assault. With filthy riffs backed by bombastic ever charging drumming and vocals that are shouted from every which direction, Enforced dish out a thorough and complete beating. Each track flows well in to the next never really giving you enough time to catch your breath.
Retaliation is a potent, relentless and menacing demo that barrels toward you at mach speed for three straight tracks only stopping once you are laying broken. This is the type of sound that thrash needs more of. This unpolished, unbridled and maniacal sound is hard to stop listening to. Retaliation is a very solid outing for these thrash maniacs as they supply you with nothing but purely punishing and unrelenting death tinged thrash to twist your neck to.
