ENFORCER: 'Diamonds' Cover Unveiled

Swedish heavy metallers ENFORCER have revealed the cover art for their new album, "Diamonds", due to be released in Europe by Earache Records on May 24 and the rest of the world by Heavy Artillery Records on May 25.

Commented ENFORCER singer Olof Wikstrand: "'Diamonds' in some way refers to that we're seeing things in a little bigger perspective, or at least we think we do, haha. To me the word sounds majestic in some strange way, and that's what I like about it, too.

"It was a bit dared, but also very natural for us to put ourselves on the cover. That was actually the first thing we agreed on concerning the artwork. The idea with us holding the diamond just came to us when we put one and two together."

According to a press release, "Diamonds" "picks up where its predecessor left off; with a pure old-school heavy metal album of the highest caliber, this time showcasing a broader range of talent and metal influences highlighted by the wizardry of renowned Swedish producer Rikard Lofgren."

Having released its debut album, "Into the Night", in November 2008, ENFORCER kicked open the floodgates for the return of traditional heavy metal, paving the way for many other young bands to follow. With critical acclaim pouring in from fans and the international music press, ENFORCER wasted no time taking their show to the road for their first European and American tours as well as a litany of appearances at many of Europe's most highly regarded festivals.

ENFORCER will embark on "The Power of Metal Tour" in Europe with STEELWING and CAULDRON from May 1 to May 15.
