Guitarist Rick Jimenez on why these songs are different than previous This Is Hell releases:
“We continuously evolve as a band and THE ENFORCER is just another step in that evolution. These songs push the boundaries of what we’ve done before just as BLACK MASS did and WEIGHT OF THE WORLD before that. The riffing is on a level we haven’t been to yet, and this is just the beginning for us. Every record we do is different from the last. THE ENFORCER has different vocal approaches, different song writing structures, guitar techniques, etc than anything prior for This is Hell.”
This Is Hell released their fourth studio album, Black Mass, in October 2011 on Rise Records.

When asked why the Metallica cover, Jimenez said “for good measure… who doesn’t wanna wind up with a bit of Whiplash after a gig?”
