Warbringer brought it, served it on a platter, and fed my eardrums a savage beating while tears of joy ran down my face. What else can i say?

Warbringer is probably the best band of the new Thrash bands. Saw these guys a few weeks ago, and they were amazing. Total energy. Awesome album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Leaders of the new generation of thrashers February 4, 2012
Format:Audio CD
If there's one thing I really hate about most record stores anymore, at least in remote outposts such as where I live in Arkansas, well away from any real record stores, they don't stock catalogue items worth a damn unless that item was a real blockbuster. Therefore, you have to resort to online services to find out anything about new bands that catch your interest.
Warbringer have delivered a real scorcher on this, their third CD. "Worlds Torn Asunder" is the work of a very tight energetic band that recalls some of the fury of early Exodus, which is a good thing, but still manage to retain an original sound. I would put these fellows in the same league as Evile, Havoc and Bonded By Blood. That means a guitar workout that makes thrash metal what it is: fast, furious and technically superior. All bands need their own sound, though, and Warbringer have their own little niche. There are a few slower moments and even a quiet keyboard piece "Behind The Veils of Night" that provides a welcome breathing space. Other than that, this is relentless stuff, and Warbringer show themselves to be worthy of the new generation of great thrash bands. A favorite cut for me is "Savagery", which actually has a behind-the-beat chorus that thrashers don't like to use, but it adds a great drive to the tune. A must have for lovers of Death Angel, Exodus, Havoc and Evile.

5.0 out of 5 stars Real songs and crushing grooves December 20, 2011
Format:Audio CD
If someone dating this band's frontman is reading this, well-- I don't want to scare you, but very few vocalists are able to exude the cold malice that John Kevill does. He's convincingly evil. I'll grant that some black metal -influenced vocalists like Mitch Lucker or Oliver Sykes can project a certain frantic, frightening energy. But thrash and death metal is about power (more than fear), and describing horrible things in a dispassionate, mildly amused tone is an effective technique for conveying a raw sense of power. Case in point, "Shattered Like Glass".

The most obvious complaint a newcomer to Warbringer can make is that they sound a lot like Slayer, but trust me, this isn't like Godsmack ripping off Alice in Chains right down to their name and logo motif. This is the real deal, and after a few listens you will realize that these guys have a wholly distinct character. As other commentators have noted, the band develops its own sound more and more with each release (the guitar solos have lost all vestige of Ralph Santolla -ness, for example). Surprisingly, I liked being treated to the high-pitched power metal screech more often (it is still used sparingly).

Forget the whole neo-thrash discussion. WB transcend that argument by not only being the best of the neo-thrash wave, but by being one of the best straight-up metal bands of our era, capable of wielding the same level of destructive power as Lamb of God and Slipknot.

My futile stab at counteracting the questionable taste of the music mags: Best Album of 2011 awards to Warbringer, Sepultura, Suicide Silence, Morbid Angel, and All Shall Perish. Peace!

Great thrash album. Sure, they sound at times like Slayer and Testament, but who cares ? These guys write some great riffs. I love the old school bands, but is nice to hear some new songs from a young band. If you love thrash, you wont be dissappointed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Bringing back the thrash.... December 1, 2011
Format:Audio CD
Good CD for fans of Death Angel, Exodus or Anthrax. I've been listening to thrash since the early 80's and this band fits right in...

5.0 out of 5 stars Original, great songwriting, great classic Thrash February 8, 2014
By Snotter
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
Leading the way for the new Thrashpocalyse, Warbringer is one of the better live and recorded Thrash bands I have heard
in a long time. Not since the recreation of Exodus have I been so impressed with a young, heavy, upcoming Thrash band.
Deserving of much more attention than they get.

To call Warbringer a thrash revival band is really dumb. Thrash has been around for thirty years. Did it fall out of favor?? Sure. But it has always been there. Read more
