Warbringer will launch a new North American tour in New York City on January 5th, 2016 at The Gramercy Theatre. This co-headliner trek with Sweden's Enforcer will be almost two months and cover the U.S. and Canada, along with opening acts Exmortus and Cauldron.
This is the first domestic tour Warbringer has done since the fall of 2013 when the group opened for Overkill and Kreator in support of last album, "Warbringer IV: Empires Collapse." This is the band's only tour planned for 2016 as Warbringer will continue to write and plan to record a fifth album later in the year.
"The band sounds fucking killer right now and I can't wait to get out there and assault the stage," comments singer John Kevill. "It is worth mentioning that I've seen a number of 'people leaving bands' news pieces recently. Most often they cite the complete impossibly of making a living playing music, and the difficulty of the touring lifestyle. Well, I can say from experience that all of that is true.
"It's tough, there's no denying that. But that isn't what I want to talk about here. What I want to talk about is what has kept me going for the 10+ years and 1000+ concerts I have done with this band I started right after finishing high school. I've seen more of the world than I ever thought was possible, met thousands of people from all walks of life, and from them learned much of the world. Among other things, I learned to remain humble and to always remember what an honor and privilege it is to perform songs I made with my friends, to complete strangers who live thousands of miles away who will come out on a work night to see me and my fellow band dudes banging our heads. Too many people lose sight of this. So that is why I am still here, and why I will see you guys on each of the 47 dates of this tour. Be ready. I am." More...

Slaves not only to the sword, but the road as well, the Los Angeles-based metal act Exmortus refuses to rest and just announced a fall tour in support of Marty Friedman on the legendary guitarist’s first North American tour in 12 years.
The 21-date tour will kick off in Baltimore on Sept. 9. Says guitarist David Rivera, “This tour is going to be insane! Touring with one of my idols is unreal!“
But that’s not all, folks: the band will continue to shred faces and guitars alike as while sampling new material from an upcoming album — which was recently completed recording at Sharkbite Studios in Oakland, California with Zack Ohren (Suffocation, Immolation).
Exmortus' forthcoming album will mark the band’s sophomore release for Prosthetic Records, and the follow-up to 2014's “Slave to the Sword.” It sees the addition of bassist Michael Cosio (ex-Abysmal Dawn) to the group’s existing line-up of Conan (vocals/guitars), Mario Moreno (drums) and Rivera.
Moreno commented on the new album,“Writing and recording this record was no easy task, but we got through it and are extremely happy with the end result. It’s a ‘metal buffet’ with a little something for everyone to enjoy. Getting the chance to record with Zack again was great, especially to be tracking in a bigger studio than the last album. A tedious process but fulfilling none the less. Hard to believe we spent half a month tracking for this album. I’m confident in saying that this is the best Exmortus album to date. You can groove, headbang and air guitar to it, what’s not to love!?” More...
The Los Angeles-based extreme shred powerhouse Exmortus is returning to Sharkbite Studios with producer Zack Ohren (Suffocation, Immolation) to begin tracking a sophomore album for Prosthetic Records.
The follow-up to last year’s “Slave To The Sword,” expected out this Fall, will feature new bassist Michael Cosio (ex-Abysmal Dawn) alongside the band’s existing core of Conan (vocals/guitars), Mario Moreno (drums), and David Rivera (guitars).
Moreno announced, “2014 was a great year for Exmortus and the campaign for ‘Slave to the Sword’ has been relentless since its release. This year has been a little quiet for us but with good reason. We’re excited to announce that we’ll be entering the studio at the end of this month to once again record with the mighty Zack Ohren. Zack did a phenomenal job on ‘Slave to the Sword’ and we’re ready to record some more bone-crushing, face-melting shred for you all!”

Metalsucks is presenting the "A Decade of Guilt" North American tour featuring Arsis, Allegaeon, and Exmortus. James Malone from Arsis comments:
"10 years ago I was a full time college student that was given an opportunity. The musical project that I had been working on 'for fun' on breaks from school was asked to record a full length album for a small independent record label.
"I had no idea at the time what the response would be to the album, or if there would be any response at all. Almost as soon as the album was released, much to my surprise, we were getting attention from around the world and my life was forever changed.
"That album was called A Celebration of Guilt and myself and everyone in Arsis, would like to celebrate it's 10 year anniversary by playing the album...in it's entirety...on tour. Many of songs have not been played live in years, if ever. Here's to a decade of guilt and METAL!!!" More...
