We've taken our musicianship and song writing to another level since the release of 'Final Days,' and really pushed ourselves and each other to step outside of our comfort zones. It finally feels like we're firing on all cylinders with the current line up and we hope the fans agree when they get their hands on this stuff."

War Curse Releasing "Final Days"

Old school thrash outfit War Curse is set to release debut "Final Days" on December 4, 2015. The album will have an official release on cassette with a CD pressing to follow in the coming months. The digital version is already available via Bandcamp, iTunes and major streaming services.

War Curse was formed in late 2013 by guitarists Justin Roth and Joshua Murphy, and drummer James Goetz. In 2014 the decision to pursue the project led to the recruitment of vocalist Tarek Puska, and a bassist named Death Metal Doug (who wasn't to last long).

Two bassists later, Eric Payne completes the line up and War Curse is melting faces around the Midwest, sharing the stage with notable bands like Raven, Viking, Unleash the Archers, and many more. With no plans on slowing down, War Curse will be heading back into the studio in early 2016 to record a follow up to “Final Days.” More...

Exclusive

War Curse Premieres "Blue Line of Injustice"

The further a society drifts from the truth, the more it will hate those that speak it." - George Orwell

"The song “Blue Line of Injustice” is a direct reflection on the unfortunate society we’re living in," explains Cincinnati thrash act War Curse.

The band continues, "The value of human life varies greatly depending on socioeconomic status and the neighborhood (or country) in which you were born. Look no further than the streets of New York City and the death of Eric Garner for proof that justice isn’t always served. When a man is choked to death over suspicion of selling a cigarette, and his killer not only walks free, but maintains his job as a member of law enforcement, there is a problem.

"People are fed up, and our hearts are with them. Until everyone, regardless of profession, is held to the same human standard, and accountability for one’s actions is equal and acceptable across the board, there will be no peace in the streets. We’re heading down a very ugly path in America right now and it’s the duty of every citizen to voice their opinion in a civil, intelligent, but ferociously non compromising manor when it comes to the systematic abuse of power.

"This song, this album, and this band is devoted to speaking the inconvenient truths that need to be heard. If we offend a few people along the way, that’s fine. At least we’re standing up for our beliefs and being heard, and to us, that’s what being a musician is all about." More...
