Decibel Magazine is now streaming “Born Lost” from Richmond, Virginia crossover killers ENFORCED. The band’s impending At The Walls LP is nearing July release through WAR Records.
ENFORCED‘s At The Walls LP features a remixed and remastered version of the 2017 demo and their “Retaliation” promo, and introduces two brand new songs to the mix. All tracks were recorded by Bob Quirk and mixed and mastered by Arthur Rizk (Power Trip, Cavalera Conspiracy, Candy), and the album’s cover art was created by Dwid Hellion (Integrity, Psywarfare) who makes a guest appearance on the track “Skinned Alive.”
With the unleashing of “Born Lost,” ENFORCED vocalist Knox states, “‘Born Lost’ is about the disconnect between the powerful and powerless. People being distracted and confused by false clickbait, social media and the perceived status it brings, as well as political lies distorting and confounding their view of reality; leaving them powerless and stupefied when palpable change needs to occur. Sadly, when that time comes, the population will be so beleaguered with bullshit that the powerful will only work with their best interests in mind and no one else’s. You were never meant to win.”
With the song, Decibel writes, “Following in the path of Demolition Hammer, Nuclear Assault, and even Skeletonwitch, ‘Born Lost’ leaps right into crossover madness guided by precise, blazing riffs, shouted vocals and ripping mosh parts.”

WAR Records will release At The Walls on LP and digital platforms on July 19th. Preorders are available at the label webshop HERE and via Bandcamp where “Skinned Alive” featuring Dwid Hellion is streaming HERE.
Following their tour supporting Sacred Reich, Iron Reagan, and Leeway across the US in May, ENFORCED continues to perform live, with several local shows including a record release show confirmed for the weeks ahead. Watch for the band to announce new tour dates in support of the LP over the months ahead.

Formed in 2016, ENFORCED picks up where Sepultura and Cro-Mags left off and infuses their own volatile, hardcore fury into the hardcore/thrash crossover sound of the late ’80s. Fronted by a voice that could only belong to that of a madman and unloading nonstop blazing riffs and pummeling breakdowns in every track, the band demolishes everything in their path, leaving a trail of smoldering wreckage and pure decimation anywhere they perform.
Expect nothing but total war from ENFORCED as the band explodes into 2019; a must-hear for fans of classic crossover/thrash from Nuclear Assault, Demolition Hammer, and Devastation, as well as modern shredders Skeletal Remains, Foreseen, and War Hungry.
