Enime is the band of the week because they are refreshing. That might not be a very bad ass heavy metal word, but the fact is their brand of tried and true politically inspired thrash is refreshing. In a metal scene where everyone is trying to do something "new" and screw with a formula that has created some of the biggest bands in our genre, it's refreshing to see someone stay on the path. Enime's album "Demon Inside" is hard nosed raw thrash the way Metallica and Megadeth meant for it to be played. There are no fancy effects, no "modern" influences. It's THRASH metal the way THRASH metal is meant to be played. - Martell

Well, Enime are a band not afraid to gaze into the abyss and to take musical and lyrical inspiration from it. But no inspirations from mythical gods and monsters, rather Enime are inspired by the world around us. Vocalist Grey explains eloquently. 'The lyrics on this album are a conglomerate of what's wrong with the world and it eats away at our souls... Every single day each and everyone of us lives with the horrors of this world. You put on the 6 O'Clock News and it paints a very dark picture of today's society. The days of seeing something positive are few and far between and becoming a thing of the past. We live in a world of silicon. Everything is fake. What you see is not what you get. Starting with the simplest cosmetic surgery, to one's Facebook profile, to the media altering a report, all the way to the powers that be feeding us a pile of shit on a daily basis. We as a people have created a monster and it is taking over. Every time we let this evil inside us it takes a bite of our souls. When the last mouthful has been devoured nothing is left but... THE DEMON INSIDE!'
Influenced by 80s thrash giants like Exodus, Anthrax and Metallica and later-day heroes like Killswitch Engage, Enime's music is 'heavy articulate, clean, thrashy, and also melodic.' Indeed Stef sees their new album as the aural equivalent of a laxative, claiming the fans will 'poop their pants' when they hear it.
