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.
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.
With 10 years since their debut, Exmortus have made their name on the road, ripping up the live circuit throughout North America and Europe. A place where the band have perfected their craft. Exmortus have created a strong body of music, with three albums under their studded belts, the latest album Ride Fourth sheds light on the extremely talented musicians.
Tune in this week as I catch up with Exmortus out on the road with Cauldron, Warbringer and Enforcer, chatting to founding member of the band Mario, we discuss the history of the band and what’s coming up next for the shred masters.
