Bloodied But Unbowed This is the second of two strong EPs from Enforced. Straight-laced crossover thrash is what you'll find here. Looking forward to a full length from these guys. Favorite track: RETALIATION.

Dork This band has put out two offerings thusfar and together with Power Trip, High Command and Subtype Zero they, to me, represent a wave of (crossover) thrash metal that, after repeated listens (and Ive listened to these albums a lot!), does not grow stale.

Instead of contriving a throwback sound and look, Enforced simply kicks ass.

Dont sleep on Retaliation and the demo! Favorite track: BORN LOST.
Lute FP

Lute FP Killer 80s-worship thrash. Too short at 3 songs barely totalling 10 minutes, but this making 2 EPs it seems like they might be on track for a proper LP, which would be killer.
