Crema de la Metal 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 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.

Track Name: BORN LOST
PAY NO ATTENTION TO THE INNOCENCE LOST
PAY NO ATTENTION TO YOUR HEAD ON THE CHOPPING BLOCK
NO MIND TO CHANGE WHEN YOU'RE EASILY BOUGHT
NO PRICE TO PAY FOR A FUTURE THAT WAS BORN LOST

YOU BREAK THEIR WILL:YOU SEAL THEIR FATE
THEY THINK YOU'RE GOD:NOW YOUR LIFE'S FOR THEM TO TAKE

IN THE ENDLESS AGE OF DISTRACTION
TO KEEP THE SAND IN YOUR EYES
THE EBB AND FLOW WEARS YOUR SOUL AWAY
WELDING THE GAP BETWEEN TRUTH AND LIES

BORN LOST

WE STAND AND WADE AND WONDER AS THE EONS PASS
JUST A GRAIN IN THE HOURGLASS
SCRAPING; WATCHING YOUR LIFE SIFT

YOUR BROKEN WILL
YOU NOT FUCKING SAFE
A THOUGHTLESS GOD
NOW YOUR LIFE'S FOR TIME TO WASTE

WHEN THE FINAL HOUR DROPS, IT'LL DAWN ON YOU:
YOU'RE LIFE WASN'T YOURS TO LIVE
AND IT'S TOO LATE AS THE HOURGLASS SHIFTS.
Track Name: THE HEAT
IT STARTS LIKE A FIST TO YOUR FACE
SMASHING YOUR ASS TO THE GROUND
THE PIT, MANIFEST SONIC EXCESS
BECOME A SLAVE TO THE SOUND

MEET YOUR DEMISE AS THE RAGE BUILDS INSIDE
PRIMORDIAL URGE TAKES CONTROL
NO FUCKING EXCUSES
HOSTILITY FLARES

IGNITE WITH THE RIFF, CONCUSSING YOUR SKULL TO
THE BEAT (STUCK INSIDE YOUR HEAD)
YOU WITNESS
THE HEAT (CANT CONTROL THE REST)

IT STARTS LIKE A FIST TO THE FACE
AN EARTHQUAKE ERUPTING THE GROUND
THE PIT, FALL INTO STEP
BECOME A SLAVE TO THE SOUND

CAN YOU STAND THE HEAT
THE KINDA FEELING WHERE YOU'RE BURNING INSIDE
CAN YOU STAND THE HEAT
THE KINDA FEELING WHERE YOU'RE LOSING YOUR MIND
Track Name: RETALIATION
BASTARD:COWARD
IGNORANT:SYCOPHANT
SIGHTS TRACED AGAINST THE HUMAN RACE
PRAY FOR DEMISE NO REASON WHY

THERE'S NO JUSTICE IN YOUR HOLLOW POINT WORLDVIEW
IN THE END IT'S JUST US TO AVOID THE CLIFF THE WORLD'S COMING TO

REEL THE BASTARDS IN
PIERCE BENEATH THE SKIN
REELS THE BASTARDS IN
PUNISH THEM

THERE'S NO PATH LEFT IN CONVINCING A FOOL
THERE'S NO MORAL COMPASS
YOU'RE LIFE IS WORTHLESS

REEL THE BASTARDS IN
PIERCED BY TRANSGRESSION
REEL THE BASTARDS IN
PUNISHMENT

RETALIATION MEETS DOMINATION
WORLD OF MALIGNANT LIES
RETRIBUTION FROM DAMNATION
THE KNIFE’S EDGE TURNS
BACK ON YOU

RETALIATION MEETS DOMINATION
WORLD OF MALIGNANT WARS
FACE TO FACE
