Metal Express Radio: Enforced’s new album entitled War Remains is set to be released on April 28th, what can you tell fans about the upcoming release?

Knox: War Remains is our most intense and aggressive offering to date. Sink your teeth into this aggressive 10-track juggernaut of crossover Thrash.

MER: How was the writing and recording process having this been Enforced’s third album?

Knox: Writing and recording was much more laid back; we weren’t worried about deadlines or stressing over being meticulous.

MER: How would you compare War Remains to Enforced’s previous two albums?

Knox: It’s faster, more vicious, and cuts your throat. It’s also shorter than Kill Grid, by about 12 minutes. The pace never lets up.

MER: You’ve released three songs from War Remains, what kind of feedback have you received so far?

Knox: So far it’s been overwhelmingly positive. The Metal Observer gave it a 9.5/10! Very cool, it’s been humbling.

MER: This Summer, Enforced will be touring North America with Venom, Exhumed, and Acid Witch, what are your expectations on the upcoming tour?

Knox: Our expectations are always low, but we’re going to play and melt faces and hopefully make new friends along the way.

MER: Do you have any plans after the tour with Venom?

Knox: We have a string of shows and another tour, nothing announced yet, but soon!

MER: Who do you hope to tour with that you haven’t yet and why?

Knox: Personally, I’d like to tour with Cavalera. Max and Igor are big influences of ours and I’d love to watch them every night.

MER: What are some of your favorite bands from the New Wave of Thrash Metal?

Knox: High Command, Warbringer, Power Trip, Angelus Apatrida.

MER: Enforced has been consistently touring and putting out music since the band’s formation, how have you and your band mates managed the nonstop touring and writing?

Knox: HARD WORK! We’re always writing, always thinking up new merch stuff, etc.

MER: What are your hopes for Enforced’s future?

Knox: World domination

MER: Out of Enforced’s three albums, what is one you would suggest to a new fan and why?

Knox: I would do it chronologically: At the Walls, Kill Grid, then War Remains. You’ll be able to pick apart the subtle changes over the course of our 6 years playing.
