Enforsaken  


The genre of melodic death metal was founded and perfected in Sweden, but bands from around the world have taken a stab at the Maiden-on-steroids approach pioneered by the likes of Dark Tranquillity and In Flames. Enforsaken, an Illinois-based band, is one such band, whose The Forever Endeavor album is a prime slice of said melodic death. Overall there isn't anything revolutionary here, but they do have a greater breadth of songwriting variance than others in this field, as the individual songs have their own identity rather than all sounding the sound. Endeavor will satisfy those into the genre, won't win many fans who aren't, and stands as a fine debut effort for a band with room and potential for growth.
