VIDEO/TRACK OF THE WEEK – ENFORCED ‘HANGED BY MY HAND’

Posted on by Oran


If their previous opus was anything to go by, Enforced will most likely smash their way into our top ten album of 2023, with the anticipated release of ‘War Remains’.¬†

The band have dropped another sonic bomb with ‘Hanged by my Hand’, and we can confirm that it doesn’t disappoint.

Vocalist Knox Colby states: “The song is about living in a world governed by the ignorant, the incompetent and the ineffective; shrugging off or poorly trying to mask how inept they truly are (The Norfolk-Southern train derailment in Ohio is a perfect example).

“The song seethes with no way forward, as the world around you burns in acid fire; you’d rather die with your dignity than having some bastard suit step over you like a piece of garbage, only remembering you as ‘collateral damage’ and not the human being you once were. They don’t care about you. Look out for yourself. Behind a poison smile, decline in denial.
