The Gauntlet posted pictures last night of the mangled front-end of Swedish heavy metal outfit Enforcer’s tour bus, which was involved in a head-on collision in Sweden. The band were driving to the next stop on their tour with Australian rockers Airbourne.
Enforcer were traveling from Oslo to Stockholm in a snowstorm at around 3:00 a.m. November 10, just outside of their hometown of Arvika, when their vehicle skidded on ice, crossed over to the other side of the road and experienced a head-on collision with a snow-plough.
Jesus H. Christ. That’s some serious shit, dude. Fortunately, no one was killed. That’s kind of unbelievable. Guitarists Adam Zaars and Joseph Tholl, along with bassist Tobias Lindqvist and the band’s driver were injured. A cop at the scene said the band “had a guardian angel.” Uh, yeah — that’s kind of an understatement, bra.
The band’s vehicle was completely destroyed in the accident, but their equipment, which was in a trailer attached to the vehicle, was luckily unscathed. Still, the band has been forced to cancel some dates on the tour as they recover from the incident. In a statement, the band said “We’re all alive and well but we’re really sorry to cancel the gigs in Stockholm, Tampere and Helsinki. We’re working really hard to get back on the road again soon!”
