Enforced: Kill Grid-2021.

Enforced is a crossover thrash band I’ve been following for the past year or so. The Richmond, VA-based outfit’s 2017 demo might have flown under the radar, but I’ll be damned if the songs on it don’t deserve the attention of both metal and hardcore heads. “Our former drummer, Isaac, and I had been jamming on lots of thrash/crossover/OSDM type stuff for a while before forming the band,” Enforced guitarist Will Wagstaff tells me about the genesis of the group.

“I had been playing in a band with Zach (who plays second guitar in Enforced) called Mad Existence, which was more of a straight-forward hardcore punk band. I mentioned that we were trying to form a band that was in the vein of Slayer/Cro-Mags and Zach expressed interest. Knox, Isaac, and I had always been friends and I knew Knox was a vocalist from a former crossover type band called Vicegrip. Our influences and the direction we wanted the band to go musically just made sense to start playing together.”
