I'm a big thrash metal fan, so the last couple years have been good to me as far as young new metal bands to check out. Warbringer's first release 'War Without End' was a great debut, and I was hoping they would be able to keep the momentum going with their sophomore release 'Waking Into Nightmares' and I have not been disappointed. If you listen to thrash metal, you know what to expect from a band like this, so I won't bother explaining the basics. What I can tell you is Warbringer have improved upon their retro-thrash formula with powerful vocals that never let up, excellent, memorable riffs, a wicked new drummer, and great production (go Gary Holt!!). Warbringer brings thrash metal into the present, making it sound fresh and new, rather than something that was written and recorded a quarter century ago. The song structures are built around the brutal guitar work and vocals that made Warbringer stand out from their peers. Only now they have a drummer skilled enough to keep up with the twin guitar attack and vocal onslaught. If you're just getting into metal, this is a great CD to grab. If you're in love with the old school, there's plenty for you to like here as well.

Side Note: It bothers me when these new thrash bands are judged only against the bands that started the movement (Exodus, Metallica, etc) and not against their peers (Evile, Violator, etc.). It also bothers me when people speak out against these new thrash bands simply because they're playing thrash metal and weren't playing in 1985. It's not like those early bands had an exclusive license to play thrash metal. Be thankful these kids are into better music now. We could still be in the nu-metal era...

Like many have noted, this release shows progression over their last one. It's still very thrashy and intense, but the songs are better constructed and more memorable. The riffs are outstanding. Pretty much, Warbringer set themselves ahead of their peers with this release. Their overall sound is very reminiscent of Demolition Hammer, but more versatile. This is probably one of the best thrash albums released in the past few years.

Thrash metal is sometimes touted by critics as a limited sub-genre. You have to play it fast, shredding solos are required, and vocally you're generally expected to sound like Tom Araya of Slayer. Lyrically, thrash demands specific content (see: war, violence, etc.), and experimentation, musical or otherwise, is not really encouraged. Essentially, thrash critics claim that all of the genre's potential has already been tapped, and modern thrash bands are merely derivatives of the 80s greats.

Try to tell that to Warbringer.

Machine-gunning their way through the imitators, Warbringer burst onto the thrash scene in 2008 with the genocidal War Without End, a debut for the ages. Still, they unfairly received criticism for being "just another thrash band," often likened to Slayer or Exodus. Their sophomore effort Waking Into Nightmares (2009) tells a very different tale.

From the very first song, the snarling "Jackal," it is evident that Warbringer are much more than a fast-paced guitar attack that lauds death and war (though they still include a healthy dose of both of these things, so don't panic, thrashers). Musically, the song-writing is improved, and the pace ranges from controlled to blistering. Some of the speed from War Without End is sacrificed for melody and more mature structure; lyrically, the same themes still dominate (the band's name is Warbringer, after all), but they no longer monopolize the album. "Jackal" and "Severed Reality" are good examples of alternate lyrical material, and if one needs proof Warbringer have matured musically, look no further than the excellent instrumental "Nightmare Anatomy.

This album kicks so much butt!

Anybody who loves 80s thrash--Exodus, Metallica, Slayer, and most especially Demolition Hammer, needs to get this album in their collection!

Emo and -core wimps need not apply!

Currently the best at new old school thrash. Anything new here? Nope. Thats just fine with me. Sometimes the old blueprint is the best.

Warbringer is an awesome new Thrash Metal band that is pure Speed and Heaviness and their Second Album is even better than the first.

First things first the drumming on this Album compared to the first one is greatly improved and makes the band even better.

The blazing fast riffs and the anger in the Vocalists voice is a perfect Combination.

The same things that made the first album great are all here but better produced so the band sounds even better.

The songs are good once again. My personal favorite tracks are "Living in a Whirlwind", "Severed Reality" ,"Schorched Earth",
"Sensless Life" , and "Forgotten Dead".

Overall this is the perfect 2nd Release for a band, Taking what made the first one good and building on it, and that makes this a must own for Thrash Metal fans.

I've also noticed this. I got the album at their tour and I noticed that it has this problem as well. I have no idea why it does this.
