So-Cal thrash metal act Warbringer have tapped former Hexen drummer Carlos Cruz to be their new drummer. Cruz comments on joining the band,
“After years of putting forth nothing but blood, sweat, and tears into my tireless ambitions for playing music, I have finally found an outlet where no more time is wasted. It was flattering to have been approached by Warbringer the first time they made a personnel change in 2008, but this time around it couldn’t have felt more like perfect timing. They’re a collective group of humble, open-minded, down-to-earth guys who share the same fanaticism for music as I do and are the tightest musicians I have ever played with. I’ve never felt so welcomed and inspired to move forward. Even past members of the band have congratulated me and it feels very much like family, not just another band. From some recent serious downfalls in my personal life came this beautiful opportunity and I couldn’t be happier. We’ll be seeing all YOU Warbringers out on the road soon!”
Cruz will be making his debut in Mexico City March 5th at the Eyescream Festival. The band will then enter the studio in April and will be playing more live shows in May and June. Warbringer’s latest album “Waking Into Nightmares” was released in 2009 via Century Media.
