Hey folks. Hope you have all bought an Integrity facemask and are enjoying Ice T destroying the morons in Trapt on Twitter today. Fucking nu metal vanilla energy drink gym buddy system band thought they could talk shit? I have to laugh. Y’all were probably too scared to listen to Body Count growing up like it was saying Candyman 5x and Ice would appear and Home Invasion album cover your parent’s goofy asses. Then you’d have had no one to buy your gear or give you rides, lmao. Headstrong can = obstinate and moronic, just sayin’. Anyway, buy the new Body Count album!

While Maga folks pissed at sane quarantine rules block Ambulances from saving lives in Michigan I am home in Upstate, NY today listening to “Thick Skin” by Limp Wrist, trying to find my cat’s laser pointer mousey chase toy before she kills me and pondering a lot how many musicians unable to tour right now are going to be adjusting to the harsh reality that the music industry was even less propped up than they thought. Your rock star illusions are a vanity in 2020 and we need to all get back into the idea of punk as an activist lifestyle community rather than a series of exchangeable personality cults. That said, plenty of great bands are hurting right now so please hit up some Bandcamp’s if you can. Plenty of bands (Darsombra especially has been killing it and shout out to White Hills as well), have had cool live streams going on. Saint Vitus Bar has had cool programming as well.

We’ve got brutal almost punk energized death metal from Centinex today to kick some music news off for you. Pre order some killer vinyl options of the band’s forthcoming Death In Pieces from Agonia HERE today. The album is out May 29th, 2020 and will likely make quarantine more of a crime scene.

SoCal thrash metal force Warbringer will release their highly anticipated full-length follow up to 2017’s acclaimed Woe To The Vanquished, entitled Weapons of Tomorrow, on April 24 via Napalm Records. The band has now unleashed a new video for the grandiose album closer track “Glorious End,” which in theme with the album’s concept, presents itself as a war epic narrated by an exchange between two close heroes – father and son.

Check out the brand new lyric video below, and witness the somber tale and splendiferous sound of “Glorious End.”

Warbringer vocalist John Kevill says: “‘Glorious End’ is the grand finale of Weapons of Tomorrow, and a first-person narrative war epic. The verse is done as a father-son dialogue, in which the son promises the father that he will live up to his ancestor’s legacy of courage, honor, and duty. The song and title have a cruel twist of irony, as the protagonist’s bravery is rendered useless by the horrific new weapons of his time, and he questions the virtues of his father as he dies. This kind of narrative storytelling element is something we feel is pretty unique to Warbringer among thrash metal bands. The music is hard-charging and aggressive, but also somber, grandiose, and well, glorious. The epic side of Warbringer is something we haven’t shared in a single yet, and we thought it was long overdue. Now onwards, brave sons.”
