ENFORCED RELEASES VISUALIZER VIDEO FOR ‘CURTAIN FIRE’ OFF KILL GRID
(Richmond, VA – February 2021) – Virginia based crossover maniacs Enforced release their new track and visualizer video for ‘Curtain Fire’ via Century Media Records.
Watch the music video for the banger, which is off the band’s forthcoming blistering new album and Century Media debut, ‘Kill Grid’,
“Also known as “the creeping barrage” curtain fire is an artillery tactic used in tandem with advancing ground troops”, singer Knox Colby explains. “It’s meant to soften up defenses or wipe them out completely. The lyrical narrative is on the defending end of curtain fire; ruminations on the death of soldiers, their grieving families, and how they’ll eventually be forgotten through time (a folded flag in a garage). The last few lines flip to the perspective of the attacker. With a very apathetic and unsympathetic attitude towards all the damage created, paving a parking lot over the conflict.”
“This song came together from the supernova of many other riffs/versions of the song. It was originally an up-tempo fast metal beat type of song. We kind of scraped that when we came up with the intro and realized it could be a really catchy song. Knox‘s lyrics work perfectly with this song and make it extremely catchy along with the head bashing and solos,” guitarist Will Wagstaff adds about the song.
‘Curtain Fire’ follows the release of ‘Malignance’ and ‘Hemorrhage’, off ‘Kill Grid’, which is set for release on March 12th. Informed by an incredible cross-section of extremes-from thrash and punk to death metal and hardcore-the emergent outfit drop a nine-song cluster-bomb of thrashing death on apathetic times.
Formed in Richmond in 2017 out of shreds of disbanded hardcore and punk bands, Enforced quickly found their calling between the undying support of regional punk/hardcore scenes and their respective record collections. Whether it’s Sacred Reich and Integrity or Bolt Thrower and Amebix, ‘Pure Crossover Death’ as Enforced call their devastating din, speared its way through two demos (‘Demo 2017′ and ‘Retaliation’) and their no-holds-barred debut, ‘At The Walls’.
Enforced is Ethan Gensurowsky (bass), Zach Monahan (guitar), Knox Colby (vocals), Alex Bishop (drums), and Will Wagstaff (guitar).
