After months of secrecy spent in the crypts finalizing the details on debut recordings, today death metal horde Warfather finally declares new battle plans. The new full-time project fronted by ex-Morbid Angel bassist/vocalist Steve Tucker, Warfather was initially announced in mid-2012, but has remained otherwise virtually a mystery until now.
As the finishing touches are currently being handled on a debut album, now confirmed to bear the title "Orchestrating The Apocalypse," this band sees Tucker back to fronting a death metal outfit after over a decade since his departure from Morbid Angel, and over two years since his participation as a vocalist and writer in the Nader Sadek project.
On the impending attack, Tucker states, "I am stoked about Warfather and our first album! Warfather is more than just a metal band; it is a belief system and a meeting of the minds, the ones that can see what is truly happening in the times we are living in. Orchestrating The Apocalypse is a warning to the eyes that choose to be blind, and a call to arms to the minds that do feel the coming changes. It is pure blackened, apocalyptic death metal. Fuck religion, fuck the government! This is their apocalypse. Our time is NOW!" More...
Greyhaze Records is proud to announce the formation and signing of brand new death metal act Warfather, a devastating new unit conceived by ex-Morbid Angel gladiator Steve Tucker.
In a statement on what metal fans are to expect from Warfather, Tucker stated: "This is my new band; it will be my main focus…. it is my kind of death metal.” Having been known for his vocal and bass skills in all of his previous acts, while still holding down vocal duties here, Tucker has moved on to guitar with this project. “I have always played the guitar and I think now is the time for me to make the move. I think doing solos and extra guitar parts will allow me to express myself in a whole new way!”
Also on guitars is Armatura, formerly of Cincinnati-based death metal band Dominion. Recruited to the drum kit is Deimos, a death metal veteran currently playing in the band Temple and also having played with bands such as Severe Torture. The bass is dispatched by Nick McMaster (Krallice, Nader Sadek, Castevet). Additional guitar contributions will be tracked by friends of Warfther, which include many notable death metal stalwarts; full details will be announced shortly.
Warfather is currently in the final stages of tracking the yet-to-be-titled album, with mixing to take place immediately after. Tucker himself is producing the entire release, as he did for the 2011-released Nader Sadek album "In the Flesh," which Tucker also performed on. The artwork is in the final stages as well, and will be unveiled shortly, along with the details on the album, which is being slated for release this Fall. Upon its release, Warfather will take the battle to the highways of the planet on tour in support of the album. More...
