Enforsaken - _Promo 1999_
by: Nuno Almeida (3 out of 5)
Nice debut work from this North American duo. Mostly influenced by the Swedish death metal scene (bands such as early Entombed, Dismember, Dark Tranquillity and In Flames), Enforsaken manage to display good potential in this two song promo tape. The first song, "Into the Everblack", starts fast, evolves into a mid-paced death metal song with a dominant guitar riff, then gets fast again and repeats the fast-slow combinations until the end. The second song, "Standing in the Shadow of Suicide", is better, with an overall "Gothenburg feel". Despite the lack of originality, it's still a nice song, with a very good solo near the end. Steve Stell's vocals are OK, following the Swedish style. The sound quality could be better, but it's acceptable since this is a demo.
