Yeah, yeah, we know this is retro and there are those that go in length to criticize it, so if so, why even bothering commenting.

I just got a copy of From Beyond and to me is another fine slab of heavy metal. Just as good and solid as the previous three records.

Wondering what other opinions are out there for those who like the genre...

I love the new retro stuff, especially when it's done with such confidence as Enforcer.
I dare say that "From Beyond" is their best record yet, actually. Really top notch speedy heavy metal. Supreme liveband as well.
That titletrack you linked to is actually a coversong with different lyrics of the band Terminal, which belongs to Tobias Lindqvist who also plays in Enforcer.

Good call. Enforcer is one of the best to emulate the "new wave of heavy metal" sound. I don't think they have made a bad release, thus far. How can anyone not like the song "Running In Menace" that is a total gem. New album is really killer, too.

Great band and I really like From Beyond, as well as all of their other albums.

I was sceptical if I need another Enforcer record yet again, as it's pretty much the same formula over and over again.
But hell yeah, after "From Beyond" some of their earlier works just seem a bit weaker now, probably really their best effort yet.
I'm pretty sure "Undying Evil" will become a long time band classic, that tune just won't go out of my head.

I don't watch that much of these bands closely, but from what I've heard, I think Enforcer are the number 1 act in the retro-heavy metal niche. They have everything necessary - songwriting talent, technical skills, catchy hooks and also a sense of atmosphere. The only complaint might be that they aren't doing anything new, but that's not the point in this style.

"Diamonds" is already a modern day classic in the genre. Stallion is another act to follow closely, especially "Mounting The World."

I didn't know that, thanks. Another related band that i really like is Black Trip, their full-length was pretty good.

I love first three albums and I have vinyls but From Beyond is weak Confused Also, I had big expectations from Evil Invaders - Pulses of Pleasure but also they disappoint me.

But Ranger - Where Evil Dwells is awesome! In my top three albums this year alongside with Marduk and Scanner.

I do not like this band that much, fine performers great musicians but lack anything that calls my attention. Falls in the same category as Cauldron and Skull Fist to me. Far Prefer the works of Helvetets Port, Witch Grave(RIP?), Vigilance, Demon Bitch, Eternal Champion, Acero Letal, Metal Grave.

I just listened to From Beyond last week. My first real experience with Enforcer. Musically, it's great for what it is...very generic, but full of energy and kept my interest. But after two songs the vocals really started to get annoying...they end up being a deal-breaker for me. Too bad, because the music is real good.

Witchgrave I like a lot and Cauldron is a notch less interesting than Enforcer for me. Funny you bring Helvetets Port, i enjoyed Exodus to Hell but every time I listen to that I think they are trying to be a little too funny and even kitsch. Heard a new track from Metal Grave, immediately thought they were going after the Sister sound from In Solitude.

I've liked this band a lot since the debut. I've only heard the new album once all the way through, and nothing at all stuck out to me besides "Undying Evil", which was great. The record seemed very 'blah' to me, which is disappointing... perhaps a few more spins will change my mind.


"Diamonds" is still my favorite. Flawless album.
