You could say that ENEMY IS US is keeping their native country's metal legacy alive by delivering an explosive mixture of old school Swedish death metal, new school thrash and adding just a touch of hardcore aggression. Their second album, "Venomized," co-produced by veteran Daniel Bergstrand (MESHUGGAH, SOILWORK, IN FLAMES), contains eleven tracks of hook-filled choruses and unforgettable riffs that will surely help to propel ENEMY IS US into the metal spotlight.
ENEMY IS US self-financed the recording of "Venomized" when they found out that their previous label was bandrupt shortly before they were schedule to enter the studio.
Swedish thrashers ENEMY IS US are currently searching for a new record label to release their already completed second album. The as-yet-untitled CD was recorded by Daniel Bergstrand (MESHUGGAH, IN FLAMES, SOILWORK) and bassist Lawrence Mackrory (F.K.Ü., ex-DARKANE).
Commented the band: "We were about to start working on the album in 2006 when we got the word our label had gone bankrupt, but we decided to go ahead and do it anyway, financing it ourselves. We made the initial recordings with Daniel and then continued on our own. This meant it took much longer than we had hoped, but it's finally done and we're really stoked about the final result."
Four new tracks from the album have been posted on the band's MySpace page.
