Sworn Enemy

BiografieFormed in Queens, NY in 1997, it didn’t take long for the music world to take notice of SWORN ENEMY’s crushing sound and delivery. While the hardcore underground boiled with excitement over the band, SWORN ENEMY recorded their debut EP, “Negative Outlook”, for Stillborn Records, the label of Jamey Jasta (Hatebreed), in 2001. With overwhelming positive reactions from fans and critics alike, the EP pushed the band to the frontlines of proud New York hardcore/metal acts. The group quickly embraced an undying touring schedule with acts such as God Forbid, Hatebreed, Unearth, D.R.I., American Nightmare and many more. Their debut full-length, “As Real As It Gets” (Elektra Records) was a lesson in brutal metal/hardcore crossover and earned SWORN ENEMY a coveted spot on Ozzfest that ultimately exposed them to an entirely new open-minded audience and proved to be their biggest break yet. Major high profile tours alongside Slipknot and Fear Factory soon followed. The sophomore album “The Beginning Of The End” saw SWORN ENEMY expand their metal elements and marked the first collaboration with Tim Lambesis (frontman for As I Lay Dying). 2007’s “Maniacal” marked an even more violent sonic barrage fueled by massive doses of classic thrash metal.
