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, is slick, diverse and calculating; shifting
between full throttle tracks like "Through Vile Black Blood"
and "My Cross To Bear" then suddenly coming to a menacing
crawl with fist pumping anthems like "Show Me Them Horns"
and "Carnal Betray." Co-produced by veteran, Daniel
Bergstrand (MESHUGGAH, SOILWORK, IN FLAMES), it's no
wonder that Venomized is massive in sound and flawless in
its presentation. Eleven tracks of hook filled choruses and
unforgettable riffs that will surely help to propel ENEMY IS US
into the metal spotlight where they will soon stand with the
likes of At The Gates and Entombed as true champions of
their homeland. (bastardized)
