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?

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!

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.

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.

Wow! Let me just begin by saying that I just saw these guys for the very first time last Friday (5/25/12) at the Ace of Spades in Sacramento, CA. opening for Destruction. I went on Amazon the very next day and bought all three of their albums! Yes, they're that good. For a band that I've never heard of before to get my attention like that is impressive in it's self. The music speaks for it's self as well. Sure there are obvious Slayer and Exodus influences (I didn't realize that Gary Holt produced their second album until I read it here) but they infuse it with a style that creates their own sound. As a teen-ager in the 80's I remember those early thrash days and these guys take me back there. If you're a fan of that style, give these guys a chance. They are very worthy of carrying the torch for the younger bands of this genre. Trust me.

This is the best Warbringer album so far. I really dug the last one, "Waking into Nightmares," but the song-writing is bettter here. Each song twists and turns from one catchy (in a good way), headbanging moment to the next and when you know its coming after repeated listens, that makes it all the better. The transitions seem more natural this time around and make WTA a better more complete "album" rather than a collection of songs.

The new drummer Carlos Cruz does a top-notch job, maybe not quite as technical as Nick Ritter was but he's furious and awesome in his own approach to the kit. He even helped write a couple tracks, including the haunting instrumental "Behind the Veils of Night," a sort of spritual successor to the last album's instrumental, "Nightmare Anatomy." Some people think these instrumentals that metal bands do break up the pacing, or are just too "weird" for a thrash band, but I love both songs and feel they give the albums more depth, and "Veils" leads perfectly into the album closer "Demonic Ecstasy."

I bought this album for $5 or $6 (the mp3 version, with digital CD jacket), and it's a steal at that price. Can't wait to see them live with Iced Earth in Feb.
