Upon returning home from their first European tour earlier this summer, in support of Napalm Death and Suffocation, WARBRINGER found itself one member short. While the group had just made touring bassist Ben Bennett official after six months of live shows together (since original bass player, Andy Laux, was still in high school), they were now faced with replacing drummer Ryan Bates after he informed them he wished to leave the band.
Fortunately, after putting a number of potential candidates through the wringer, the very talented Nic Ritter won the band over with his diverse and technical style. Ritter, 27, had been playing with progressive thrash act Prototype, a band whose song "The Way It Ends" was a bonus cut on Guitar Hero III, since relocating to LA from San Diego. He has also been keeping busy with his death/grind side-project, Bodybag Johnny.
WARBRINGER's recent show in Mesa, Arizona last weekend was his first with the band and from all reports the group didn't miss a beat. You can catch a glimpse of his capabilities via video on his MySpace page.
Ritter had the following to say about his induction into the band: "I have been working at getting in a legit, professional band for a while now, and I feel this band is a great fit for me. I can't wait to get on the road and play with the new and improved WARBRINGER lineup. We are already throwing around ideas for the next album and I can't wait to write and record it with the rest of the band. It's going to be brutal!"
Also speaking to the potential of the new album, Bennett added: "I gladly look forward to contributing with riffs and songs for the new album. Oh and by the way, expect some fat bass in the future of WARBRINGER."
Under an arduous life of non-stop touring, the band has certainly approached its developing career much like the title of its debut full-length, "War Without End." However, as young as some of these guys might be, they understand that along the road to reward there will be a few unexpected bumps, and with a new drummer and a permanent bass player they're ready to show Wacken their best lineup yet on August 2nd.
Soon after their return from Europe, where they'll tour with Sworn Enemy and All Shall Perish, WARBRINGER will embark on a North American tour beginning Aug. 22 with label mates and blackened folk metallers Finntroll. This will be the band's third tour of the States after sharing stages with the likes of Exodus, Goatwhore, Nile, Suicide Silence and others. The latest Warbringer tour dates follow: More...
Southern California's EXMORTUS has inked a deal with New York's Heavy Artillery Records. The group's debut album, "In Hatred's Flame", is tentatively scheduled for release in April 2008.
From humble beginnings in a dusty Southeast L.A. garage in 2002, EXMORTUS have risen to become one of Southern California's top metal headliners. From clubs to backyards to basements, EXMORTUS carved its niche with its live campaign against false metal, sometimes as often as two shows a night back to back, twice a weekend. Dominating all in their path, EXMORTUS quickly made a name for itself in the L.A. metal underground playing direct support to headliners such as NECROPHAGIST, AGENT STEEL, NEVERMORE, HIRAX, HALLOWS EVE, FLOTSAM AND JETSAM, SADUS, TESTAMENT and others.
