Wovenwar release new video for “Cascade”

Posted by Metal Riot on Monday, June 26, 2017 at 7:01 PM (PST)

After releasing their sophomore full-length, Honor Is Dead, to critical acclaim last year, Wovenwar is launching a new video for the album track “Cascade” today. It was directed/edited by the band’s own Nick Hipa (guitar).

More aggressive and fluid than its self-titled predecessor, Honor Is Dead was written with contributions from all members. The results speak for themselves, capturing a group that sounds truly unified, and hungry. Expanding upon the ruthlessly catchy melodies and hooks of their debut, Honor Is Dead makes for a listening experience with real depth, and a broad emotional range. Driven by a darker lyrical theme, the album’s 11 tracks hit with devastating force!

Wovenwar continue to grow and impress. The band are more melodic than some can handle but I personally love it. The group are not afraid to incorporate their metalcore and emo emo roots but have pushed their corners, becoming more epic in the process. Skywriting vocals match the energetic and quite metal influenced leads and intricate lines, maximum energy on both songwriting and give and take with the fans.

Nick Hipa adds: “Our video for “Archers” is cut from live footagefilmed by Josh Knofffrom our recent hometown show at Brick by Brick. The lyrics heavily reference specific themes and songs from Shane’s previous band (Oh, Sleeper) as a sentimental nod to how that chapter in his life was unforgettably formidable. With that in mind, it felt appropriate to create a visual edit captured from our venue in a room filled with quite a bit of family and friends… it kinda just completes the whole vibe as positively nostalgic.

This is the kind of band who you would love to see live or in a perfect world share a stage with. There is a kinetic excitement in what they are doing and I had to finally show their album to my current guitarist in my band GET OUT. the other day, a big As I Lay Dying fan who is still adjusting (“Dude, it’s awesome. Promise.”). Wovenwar might be different but they are forging a new legacy with sharpened tools from their experiences. “Archers” is great evidence.

Watch it NOW.

WOVENWAR are excited to return to Europe in May for a club tour as direct support to SYLOSIS! Tickets and dates are listed now on

Comments the band: “If we lads in Wovenwar had a pence for every great show memory experienced in the Europe, our trousers’d be loaded with one or two quid… each. Off our trolleys in enthused anticipation of our upcoming tour, we look forward to performing many more wonderful moments with you lot. Cheers!”

I was just talking to a dude in the crowd at Yob/Enslaved in NYC who had a Sylosis t-shirt about how unbelievably good their latest Dormant Heart is (especially that end riff of “Leech”). Wovenwar, of course, are the As I Lay Dying guys moving forward with Shane Blay on vocals post-Lambesis family tragedy. Their debut was one of 2014’s most inspired records in the face of tremendous pressure and I have the utmost respect for the guys. I’m a big fan and you should be too!

Wovenwar release new music video “Death to Rights”

Posted by Morgan Y Evans - Walking Bombs on Thursday, January 29, 2015 at 4:28 PM (PST)


Your friends and mine, WOVENWAR are extremely excited to partner with Loudwire to exclusively debut their new music video for the track “Death to Rights“. The clip was directed by Josh Klein and Nick Hipa. Check it out now directly at HERE.

I’m a huge fan of this band and thrilled they are touring with Periphery. If you get a chance see one of those dates. Going to be some very memorable shows. Jordan Mancino’s drumming on “Death To Rights” in particular should please nearly any era As I Lay Dying fan.

Phil Sgrosso (guitars) states: “Here is our new music video for our song, ‘Death To Rights’. The clip is mainly performance based and incorporates manipulated imagery relating to our album art. We are stoked to share it with you all. See you soon.

Wovenwar and Periphery tour has me really stoked

Posted by Morgan Y Evans - Walking Bombs on Saturday, November 22, 2014 at 8:02 AM (PST)


This morning’s excitement is that my girlfriend’s daughter just got a Charizard Pokemon card. It’s a mega and has a crimson dive attack for 300 damage. In other news, I hope you are all as stoked as I am for the news that Wovenwar are touring with new school prog-core thrillers Periphery. I have been really late on the Periphery game as the more technical stuff I am into usually has gruffer vocals, but I’m really enjoying “The Scourge” and love the shit out of the Wovenwar debut. It is stunning what Wovenwar managed to accomplish on that record during a time when most bands would have buckled completely (I am talking, of course, about the Tim Lambesis scandal).

Wovenwar have been making new converts despite the cleaner vocal sound and I implore people to really give the band a shot. Tour dates and a menacing Charizard after the jump HERE.

Wovenwar‘s take charge (and soon to be signature live track  once fans really fall in love with it) “All Rise” is now paired with a music video as well!

This song is gorgeous, stirring and huge. I have been singing it for weeks. Shane is the man! Very inspiring and full of impressive guitar highlights and Jordan’s stampeding drums as well.

AllMusic is streaming the brand new music video for “All Rise” (directed by Scott Hansen – now here:

Black Label Society to tour with Wovenwar and Kyng

Posted by Morgan Y Evans - Walking Bombs on Wednesday, May 28, 2014 at 9:12 PM (PST)


Well, this is an unexpected but cool bill. I wouldn’t peg Wovenwar and BLS as the most likely of tour mates, but if the BLS biker crowd have an open mind they may dig what Wovenwar can dish out, though they have way more melodic tendencies than Black Label. Kyng I am not really familiar with.

With the highly successful REVOLVER GOLDEN GODS TOUR coming to a close at the end of next week, Black Label Society have announced the new batch of dates in support of their latest LP Catacombs of the Black Vatican. Tour dates will kick off in Cincinnati, Ohio at the famed Bogart’s venue and run through the first week of August. Earlier this month, Black Label Society made their network television debut by performing their current single “Angel of Mercy” on Late Night with Seth Meyers, seen here.

Wovenwar is obviously Shane from Oh, Sleeper with As I Lay Dying minus Tim (for complicated reasons you may have heard about). Anyway, you ought to check out the new video for “One Year” from the new band, a beautiful and melodic song that makes you feel how much these guys care about what they do  and how this whole thing must have really sucked for them. As an AILD fan who was upset by events with Lambesis, I really wish the rest of the guys the best of luck while the dust settles. I interviewed Jordan Mancino years back for Crusher Magazine and he was great to talk to.
