Kerrang! is hosting the exclusive premiere of the new “Skinned Alive” video from Richmond, Virginia crossover quintet ENFORCED. The track comes from the band’s debut LP, At The Walls, which saw release through WAR Records this summer.
At The Walls features a remixed and remastered version of ENFORCED’s 2017 demo and their “Retaliation” promo, and introduces two brand new songs. 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 “Skinned Alive.”
With their debut of the video for “Skinned Alive” – the song featuring a guest vocal spot from Dwid Hellion of Integrity – Kerrang! writes in part, “At The Walls, the latest album by the Richmond, Virginia-based quintet, is a tireless slab of powerful, hardcore-influenced death metal that bristles with convincing rage and underground acidity. That genuine vibe has earned them a place of respect next to modern extremists like Gatecreeper and Power Trip; to sell out or try for a radio rock hit is the last thing on this sonic juggernaut’s mind.”

Following their East Coast tour with Sacred Reich, Iron Reagan, and Leeway in May, ENFORCED has shared the stage with Accused AD, Red Death, Ekulu, and others on local one-off shows throughout the summer. This week, the band embarks on their North American tour with Massachusetts-based High Command. Beginning October 18th in ENFORCED’s hometown of Richmond, the At The Walls Of Desolation Tour 2019 will bulldoze northward through the Northeast US and into Canada before coming to a smoldering finale in High Command’s hometown of Worcester on November 2nd.
Less than two weeks later, ENFORCED goes back out for another run of shows through the Northeast including several shows supporting Integrity, and upon their return home, will play a one-off with Youth Of Today, Judge, and Downfall.
Watch for additional tour dates to be announced into the new year.

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; a must-hear for fans of Nuclear Assault, Demolition Hammer, Skeletal Remains, Foreseen, and War Hungry.
