Swedish heavy metal sensations ENFORCER recently performed a blistering set at the UK’s Sonisphere festival in Knebworth in front of thousands of fans. With just a couple of weeks left until the band appears at Bloodstock festival, the members are feeling energetic and relaxed as the summer dates sail along smoothly.

Things aren’t always incident-free on tour though, as ENFORCER frontman OLOF WIKSTRAND recalls a rather scary encounter during the band’s North American tour with CAULDRON in late 2009:

“It was when me and Jonas finally got to Florida last year after 35 hours of driving. It was kinda dark. We went down to the sea to have a swim. Then I suddenly felt something touching my leg, and I was scared and went up to the surface. And then we saw shark fins sticking up everywhere in the sea. We even saw some sharks jumping… They were big! About 150 – 200cm, longer than I am tall.”

Thankfully, the young metallers managed to swim to shore, get out of the water and warn the others, living to tell the tale and finish the rest of the tour.
