ENFORSAKEN Calls It Quits - June 30, 2006

Arlington Heights, Illinois-based death metallers ENFORSAKEN have issued the following update:

"It's official. After eight years of existence, we have decided to lay ENFORSAKEN to rest. We will play our final show Saturday, August 19th in Chicago athe Metro. This wasn't the easiest decision to make, but in the end, we agree that ENFORSAKEN has now run its course. We've accomplished everything that we set out to do, and now it's time to move on. We're all very proud of our last album, 'Sinner's Intuition', and feel that now is a good time to end the band.

"We've chosen to burn out on a high note now, rather than just slowly fade into obscurity. Due to our many obligations outside the band, we cannot continue to put 100% of our time into ENFORSAKEN. We were basically kids when this band formed, and over the years, things just have to change. Whether you like it or not. It's as simple as that. Some bands linger on for years past their expiration date. ENFORSAKEN will not become one of those bands.

"Over the past eight years, ENFORSAKEN have left their mark on the world with CDs released in the USA, Europe and Japan. We've made many friends (as well as a few enemies, haha!) It was definitely an interesting journey for all of us, and we look back at our past with absolutely no regrets. So many of you from all around the world have gotten into our music, and for us musicians playing in a band, that's really what it's all about. Having kids from all over the place tell you that they've genuinely been moved by your music is definitely a nice thing, to say the least. We're very pleased that you enjoyed what your heard. Your constant kind words regarding ENFORSAKEN have always been greatly apreciated. Those words were never taken for granted and were always an inspiration to us. We can truly walk away from ENFORSAKEN with our heads held high at this point.

"We'd like to thank every one of our fans across the globe for their support throughout the years. You are the main reason why we stuck around for so long. Thank you.

"Thanks to everyone else that had a role in making ENFORSAKEN what it is today. You know who you are.

"So there it is. Not much more really needs to be said. We hope to see some of you at our last show in August. DEAD TO FALL, THE KILLER as well as a few other cool bands will be on the bill. It should definitely be a night to remember.

"Thanks again. We'll see you around..."


Now, I have one of their albums, FOREVER ENDEAVOR, and it's a great album among a flooding of mediocre American metal. And they also did a cool cover of Death's classic "Crystal Mountain..."

But hey. I know it's hard to stand out in today's metal scene. I wish it would've been a screamo band rather than Enforsaken, but I wish them well...

Awesome band. They could of winged it for a little longer, its their call though.
Most of the important things


in the world have been accomplished


by people who have kept on


trying when there seemed to be no hope at all

What subgenre are they exactly? They seem to me to be melodeath, but there seems to be some metalcore mixed in.

Hmm judging from your pic you'd fit in more with a fat busted tribute.

Pretty cool band. Good move, ending when they saw it right. This was the first I've heard of them and I'll probably try to get my hands on an album of theirs. Any recomendations?

Good on them. It's the right choice. Quit while you're ahead. As for Ensiferum: Well, I'd be delighted to see them split as well.
