You need some thrash riffs today, and you need them from Enforced. The band is streaming their new song “Curtain Fire” that comes out of the gate hot as hell and then proceeds to never let up. It’s the audio equivalent of coffee!
“Also known as ‘the creeping barrage,’ curtain fire is an artillery tactic used in tandem with advancing ground troops”, said Knox Colby. “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,” said guitarist Will Wagstaff. “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.”
Enforced will release their new album Kill Grid on March 12. Pre-orders are available here.
