ALBUM REVIEW: Warbringer – Weapons Of Tomorrow – Napalm Records

With frustration at the current Covid-19 situation growing by the day, it’s not too fanciful to suggest that some people might need an occasional, brief release of aggression to help with the continuing sense of isolation. So, before you start primal screaming into the nearest pillow, hurling dinner plates at your partner-cum-cellmate, or punching the cat, you could always just grab Weapons of Tomorrow (Napalm Records), the new album by Californian thrashers Warbringer, and headbang your quarantine problems away.

Havok – Warbringer – Gorod – Exmortus – Rebellion Bar, Manchester UK

You know it’s going to be a good gig when the first band have already made your jaw drop before you made it into the venue, and they only started playing as you turned around the corner. When it’s a struggle to strap on the camera because of the overwhelming compulsion to play air guitar, you know it’s going to a be a damn fine night indeed. Continue reading

Warbringer – Woe To The Vanquished

Like a bizarre Thrash Metal version of Sesame Street, the latest Warbringer album is brought to you by the letter W.

Singer John Kevill talks gives an update on the band:

“I really thought that the Empires Collapse record cycle ended prematurely due to the departure of (guitarist) John Laux and (drummer) Carlos Cruz. I figured it would be the end of the band, and the end of my life’s work, as I’d really put everything I had into this band”

“I remember on the last show we played on that US tour (guitarist) Adam Carroll came to me and told me how we had to keep the torch held high and to realize the full potential of the band no matter what. We carried on the following European tour with fill-in members, as we really hate to cancel a gig and let down our fans, but it really seemed like the end for us. Fortunately, though it took a long time, we have been able to find musicians in our area to help carry on the torch of the destructive, intense music this band stands for. So welcome Vicken Hovsepian on drums, Noah Young on guitar, and Alex Malmquist on bass. Our mission since we started rehearsing together was to be the tightest incarnation of the band yet, and to raise the bar and move forward, never back. So far progress has been great and I can’t wait to get out there and unleash this new weapon upon the world.”
