Label: Napalm Records
Release Date: March 31, 2017
Warbringer return with their fifth Album "Woe to The Vanquished" at the end of the month and its a colossal work of art as all hell breaks loose on the combat zones of history , this eight track opus is an unstoppable monstrosity of extreme Thrashing Metal that crushes you with its furious , unstoppable , might . Album Opener "Silhouettes" leads us into the mists of time with Drums and Riffs to intimidate and keep an angry Army of blood thirsty Rottweilers at bay ,this is a menacing start to whet your appetite for whats to follow as galloping Guitars from Adam Carroll and Chase Becker tear into your skull battering you with un stoppable force. The next song deals with the brutality and militaristic role that's becoming more and more virulent in many of the worlds police forces , this will see you head banging yourself into a Metallic stupor as Carlos Cruz's Drums beat into you, combined with massive killer riffs, this is going to ignite many a mosh pit with rabid Warbringer fans , slamming, headbanging and venomously repeating the chorus as they vow to "Remain Violent" .
"Shellfire" explodes into the room as John Kevills yells , taking you back to the frontline of the First World War with its endless, pointless battles as troops on opposing sides were simply lambs led to the slaughter, the filth, rats and human decay is fully transmitted in this exceptional and harrowing take on the misery and destruction that happened a hundred years ago, its a savage atmospheric track full of hostility and horror to thrash you senseless.
"Descending Blade" slashes its way into the room with the mighty booming Bass from Jesse Sanchez united with the shredding Guitars and Kevills banshee screams and angst filled Vocals , together they deliver a no holds barred Metal assault.
"Spectral Asylum" gives you a slight reprieve from the obliteration of your brain cells but that brief break is soon shattered as the track rampages away .
Penultimate track "Divinity of Flesh is full on shredding guitars, tormented vocals and a thundering rhythm section to kill for!
Final Song "When The Guns Fell Silent" is a diverse and very unexpected track, running at a huge eleven minutes its aggressive , superb and batters you senseless, leaving you completely absorbed by the bands dynamic and exemplary skills this whole release will have pits exploding leaving bodies battered and bruised. mind , body ,and soul, what a spectacular finish this is to eight tracks of Thrashing Insanity!
