Warbringer announce new album
Official press release: Thrash metal force Warbringer is launching into 2020 with the announcement of their brand-new full-length release, entitled Weapons of Tomorrow, scheduled to drop on April 24 via Napalm Records. With this release, the SoCal five-piece have not only proven a true mastery of their craft, but have spurred the forward shift of an entire genre – transporting thrash metal into a brand-new era. Building upon their internationally-acclaimed blistering attack, with Weapons of Tomorrow, Warbringer showcases a refreshed technical approach and a heightened focus on unique lyrical and vocal style. The record takes the promise of the band's previous release, Woe to the Vanquished, and carries it onward, presenting Warbringer at their absolute best to date – over 10 years into their careers. In celebration of the announcement of Weapons of Tomorrow, Warbringer has released a brand-new music video featuring a completely remastered version of their most recent single, "Firepower Kills" – exclusive to the new album. Warbringer vocalist John Kevill says: "'Weapons of Tomorrow' contains two tracks you've previously heard, 'Firepower Kills' and 'Power Unsurpassed', which now appear on the record in new and improved form. 'Firepower Kills' is about advancing weapons technology. Modern science is an enormously powerful tool, and the human species must be very cautious about its use. This song looks at the last 100 years of scientific advances in weaponry and asks, 'where does this lead?' Musically, it's a total thrashing burner, and the main riff 'evolves' throughout the song like the weaponry in the lyrics." Weapons of Tomorrow was recorded with acclaimed producer Mike Plotnikoff – producer on Woe To The Vanquished and for artists such as In Flames and Fear Factory – and mixed by Zack Ohren, who is credited for the mix on Warbringer's sophomore album, Waking Into Nightmares, as well as his work with artists like Machine Head and Immolation. Weapons of Tomorrow track listing: 01. Firepower Kills 02. The Black Hand Reaches Out 03. Crushed Beneath the Tracks 04. Defiance of Fate 05. Unraveling 06. Heart of Darkness 07. Power Unsurpassed 08. Outer Reaches 09. Notre Dame (King of Fools) 10. Glorious End
