Warbringer frontman on this week’s show

Featured

Currently sweeping the US nation supporting German thrash legends Destruction I catch up with founding member and frontman John Kevill of Warbringer.

Just back from Europe extensively touring their latest release ‘Woe to the Vanquished’, I find out more about the latest release and news on new additions to the band.

Warbringer band

I first came across the band last year when out on the road with Enforcer, they were trying out a new line-up consisting of guitar player Conan from Exmortus and bassist Jessie Sanchez. Following on from that tour, Warbringer hit the studio to record what would be the band’s 5th studio album entitled ‘Woe to the Vanquished’ (released March 31st via Napalm Records). The album shows a stronger side to the band and also highlights the talents of new members guitarist Chase Becker and Sanchez.

What the label say;

Warbringer has continued to evolve throughout its 4 albums into the most lethal band in thrash, and delivers a monumental  5th record in Woe to the Vanquished. Taking the more progressive and ambitious leanings of Empires Collapse and tempering them with pure, unrelenting violence. The result is a unique hybrid strain of thrash and extreme metal that ranges from all-out speed assaults such as “Woe to the Vanquished” and “Shellfire” to the biggest song the band has ever done, the 11-minute “When the Guns Fell Silent.” Warbringer makes a triumphant step forward on this record, it’s an absolute must for anyone into metal today.

Nervosa join this week’s show

Listen hereFrom a self produced video to being signed to Napalm records. The short life of Nervosa has been somewhat of a rollercoaster ride. Conceived whilst in previous bands, the members gave up everything to form Nervosa. nervosab2Born on the South American road, Nervosa were soon picked up by Destruction frontman Schmier who took the band under his wing and showcased their music video via social media. Within a short time the video had gathered tens of thousands of views on youtube, earning them a great deal of noise throughout the world.

Their blinding debut album release “Victim of Yourself” sent shockwaves throughout the metal industry gaining the Brazilian trio the credibility they so richly deserve. Nervosa are now back with a second album “Agony“.

 

What the label says:

Brazil`s meanest power trio has returned: Nervosa indulge in relentlessly raw all-female thrash metal on their second studio album Agony that almost effortlessly merges the energy of the glorious 80s with the refined aggression of this millennium. Played even more on point and precise than debut Victim of yourself (2014), it definitely enriches the Nervosa sound having transferred the production to the USA: the South American riff tornado is in flawless shape! Nods to Kreator, Slayer etc really are just the tip of the iceberg here, and the Brazilian squad continues to drag its fans down into a malicious maelstrom full of old school darkness…

 

Currently on tour in Europe I catch up with Bassist/ vocalist Fernanda Lira via telephone to chat about her musical journey and life in Nervosa and what’s next for the thrasher trio.
