Warbringer To Play Entire “Waking Into Nightmares”

In celebration of their 2009 album “Waking Into Nightmares” Warbringer will play a trio of special shows in April. Comments the band’s vocalist John Kevill:

“This year we will be writing new material, but that doesn’t mean the live war machine will stop rolling… in addition to our Japanese ‘Thrash Domination‘ festivals with Testament and Exodus, we are pleased to announce a small run of West coast shows in April of 2018. Since we have been playing ‘Woe to the Vanquished‘ in its entirety this last year, to great response, we decided we liked the full album format live.

It is really cool being able to deliver the whole of a record, front to back, in a live setting, and so on these limited April dates we will be doing that with a fan favorite from our back catalogue… ‘Waking into Nightmares‘.”

“We will play the full record live as both a treat for fans as well as a tribute to Nic Ritter, who passed away in 2017. That record pushed the boundaries forward for Warbringer and we look forward to punishing everyone with it live this coming April. See you in the pit.”

The live performances will take place on the following dates:

04/27 Los Angeles, CA – The Whisky
04/28 Santa Ana, CA – Malone’s
04/29 San Diego, CA – Brick By Brick

Exmortus Back In The Studio

Exmortus have started tracking their new album at Sharkbite Studios in Oakland, CA. Those sessions are helmed by producer Zack Ohren (Immolation, Fallujah). Exmortus have recruited Warbringer members drummer Carlos Cruz and guitarist Chase Becker for the sessions.

Vocalist/guitarist Jadran “Conan” Gonzalez comments:

"We’re all stoked to record the new album with Zack, it’s the third time we’ve worked together and we feel very comfortable with him. He is a great engineer and always gets the best performances from the band. It’s unfortunate that [drummer] Mario Moreno and [guitarist] David Rivera will be stepping out for this session, but nonetheless we’re very excited to record with good friends and awesome. Can’t wait to release these heavy tunes."

Former Warbringer Drummer Has Died

Former Warbringer drummer Nic Ritter has died. Shares the band's vocalist John Kevill:

"A couple days ago we got some tragic news. Our former drummer, Nic Ritter, is dead. He passed either Wednesday or Thursday and I got the word Thursday night. I know few details of how he died. I had not seen Nic in many years, though I had spoken to him a few times fairly recently. I always will to regret that I never saw him again, and we never really caught up on all our old times traveling the world.

'Nic played approximately 400-450 shows with Warbringer between June 2008 through January 2011, the period where we were never off the road. His drum performance on "Waking into Nightmares" pushed the standard of technicality and musicianship in Warbringer to a new level and helped to shape the identity of the band to what it is today. He was an absolutely stellar player who in my opinion is a true innovator in thrash metal drumming.

"Sadly, 'Waking into Nightmares' is, to the best of my knowledge, his sole recorded musical legacy. Shame that he never played on another record, at least I know he was very proud of our work on that one. Rest easy, old buddy." More...

Warbringer Issues "Silhouettes" Video Clip

Warbringer is definitely one of the most aurally devastating bands in the scene today and make a triumphant step forward on the upcoming record, "Woe to the Vanquished." On March 31st they deliver their monumental 5th full-length via Napalm Records.

To shorten the wait time, the band has unleashed the first ripping track "Silhouettes" today via music video which was directed by Orie McGinness (Enlighten Creative Studio) and produced by Shan Dan Horen (Shadow Born Group). The video is shown exclusively via Decibel Magazine's website at this location, or in the player conveniently located below.

John Kevill gives a deeper insight into the first song "Silhouettes": "This song, the album opener, is a blazing and intense number; we wanted the album to open with pure annihilation. I had the lyric in my head and the frantic riff under the verse since the beginning of 2014, and I am very pleased that it exists as a full song now.

"The idea for the song came from a particularly chilling detail found at Hiroshima and Nagasaki; when the atomic bombs went off the shadows of people whose bodies were vaporized still remain burned onto the walls and the ground where they once stood. To me, this is goddamn horrifying. I thought - 'What if the souls of those dead remain trapped in the shadows?'

"I wanted to have the song written from a future where civilization has failed, the Earth is in ruins and the few remaining survivors live a horrible existence. The untold millions of shadows from this future, burnt into stone, look back at us in the present time and judge us for bringing about the apocalypse that, though we saw it coming, we did nothing to avoid.

"The way I see it, we continue funding weaponry that keeps getting more and more devastating (search 'satan-2' if you think this issue is some relic), and leadership seems on a sharp downward trend as well. Not the ingredients for a positive outcome. Remember, it only takes one mistake, once, and everything everyone has ever built, written, painted, all music, all culture, every ounce of human achievement is gone, in a single blinding flash. Like it or not, this is the world we live in today, and entering 2017 the delicate balance tips and sways more and more.
So, Happy New Year. Enjoy the time we have left, and fucking thrash. Woe to the Vanquished.
We're Ghosts!" More...

Warbringer Unveils New Album

On March 31st, Warbringer will deliver a monumental 5th record entitled "Woe to the Vanquished." Singer John Kevill describes the new album:

"For the music on this record we re-focused ourselves after a lot of the experiments on Empires Collapse, and decided we wanted to make a record that is start-to-finish more merciless, ruthless, and cruel, but also maintains some of the more melodic and progressive sense. What we ended up with is a record that has a lot of traits of classic thrash but also a lot of extreme metal, and a rather unique version of that blend. It's overall faster and meaner than anything else we've put out, but also has our biggest and most ambitious song, the 11-minute 'When the Guns Fell Silent' to close the record."

The album was produced and mixed by Mike Plottnikoff (Fear Factory, In Flames), mastered by Howie Weinberg (Slayer, Pantera) with cover art by the esteemed Andreas Marschall (Sodom, Blind Guardian, Obituary).

Kevill explains the stunning album artwork by saying: "It is directly based on a photograph from the end of the First World War--a grim monument, a pyramid of 12,000 German spiked helmets, right in the middle of New York City. What struck me about the image is firstly how morbid it seems to be celebrating 12,000 dead men and calling it victory." More...
