WORLDWIDE PANIC Release Official Music Video for “Party”

 Party Cover Art

LA Based Heavy Metal Band WORLDWIDE PANIC has released the Diego Gonzales directed official music video for their newest single, “Party.”

“In my perspective it was a challenge to us as a band as well as in respect to finding a director. There are no shortages of videographers and directors in Los Angeles County. I know a lot of great ones that are total visionaries and could have easily shot this video and it would have just been another day at the office for them and I didn’t want that. I wanted to find someone who had the same passion for the song that we had. The moment I spoke to and met with Diego and showed him the song and saw his reaction we immediately started storyboarding with each other. It was not an easy task to complete in any regard. We wanted something extremely specific that was based on true life events that occurred in my life. Finding the actors, booking a sound stage, finding a crew, getting props, and be lengthy processes to deal with. A week to the date, Worldwide Panic, myself and Diego spent four hours at a professional soundstage filming the band performance and that weekend we had casted the actors who take this dream and turn it into a nightmare. The scenes portrayed in this video most actually happened to me. It is still difficult for me to watch this and not feel empathy for the actor on screen. I could not believe that those things happened to me in real life and now I am where I am living a happy fulfilling life. I think the rawness captured in this video encapsulates many life lessons I had to learn the hard way. Even with the dark subject matter of the song and video I like that it is done in a fun way and makes something that was very painful entertaining and fun and teaches people to avoid the many pitfalls that exist in society. It is with great pleasure I present, Party!” – Lane Steele (Bass / Vocals)

Player 2

 

“On this track we had the pleasure of having my good friend Aaron Nordstrom help produce the vocals. He had this to say, “I’ve known Lane Steele for many years since we were in school together. I’ve seen him evolve and work very hard for awhile and find his voice as a musician. I had the pleasure of working on the song “Party” and enjoyed it very much. It was a smooth workflow and resulted in a great song. Take a listen and be sure to catch them on the road with Flaw this fall.”
– Aaron Nordstrom (Gemini Syndrome)

WARBRINGER premiere new video for Black Sun, Black Moon

Los Angeles based thrash metal band WARBRINGER have launched their video for “Black Sun, Black Moon” from the album IV: EMPIRES COLLAPSE out now on Century Media.  Our friends at Lambgoat.com are helping with the premiere.

Singer John Kevill had this to say about the video shoot:

“We went out to the most desolate stretch of highway we could find out in the Mojave desert. It’s a fitting location for this song, which is a motorin’ heavy metal tune, with a Priest highway-rollin’ type feel crossed with the forbidding mysticism of the night!”

Kreator hits Pittsburgh with latest release “Dying Alive” November 4 @ Altar Bar

The legends of Thrash Tour 2013 hits Altar Bar with the likes of Kreator, Overkill, and Warbringer on November 4.  The headliner, Kreator, has quite the apt name in that many attribute the band as one of the true forerunners of death metal.  The thrash metal band originated way back in 1982 in Essen, Germany and has been cranking out their brand since with only little variation in the nineties.   Featured vocalist/guitarist Mille Petrozza has been there since the beginning and is the sole remaining original member, but since their resurgence in 2001 Sami Yli-Sirniö on guitar, Jürgen “Ventor” Reil on drums, and Christian “Speesy” Giesler on bass have remained intact and proven themselves as a solidified group.

On their latest release, “Dying Alive”, Kreator gives their fans live tracks and a live DVD full of goodies.  This should fire up any fan as they anticipate seeing them on tour.  The sold-out show was filmed by 24 cameras, guitar-cams and even moshpit-cams were used to record this live document.  It’s ninety minutes of pure on stage thrash mayhem, 3 video clips and an in-depth backstage documentary (which is truly a treat).

„This show on December 22, 2012 was something special for us. One day after the officially announced apocalypse the homecoming show at Turbinenhalle was really intense. Before that we were touring on various continents and played some really special gigs. But none of them was as energized. Fans from all over Germany, Belgium and Holland came to make this DVD something magical. We can rely on our fans and on concerts in the ruhr area anyway. While editing the footage I realized how great all came into place that December night. Thanks to all the fans! This DVD is for you!“ – Mille Petrozza

What struck me immediately while viewing the DVD, was the feeling of being at the show.  Many times the lackluster MTV video-like feel of live leaves the viewer with a flat voyeuristic feeling rather than immersive.  You feel part of the audience, part of the crew, part of the band, plus the blending of the screen visuals was literally chilling.  The camera angle switches pace as fast as the music creating a frenetic buzz for any true metal lover.  The stage dives, mosh pit maniacs, percussion like lighting, merch table madness, and the aftermath clean-up all add to the feeling of actually being there.  Bands should take note of what Kreator has produced for their fans, including the bonuses, and up the ante for all of us.

WARBRINGER release first new song & lyric video for “Hunter-Seeker”

Following up on a successful appearance at Iron Maiden‘s “The Battle Of San Bernardino” event last weekend and in the light of the upcoming release of their fourth studio album, IV: Empires Collapse, on October 29 via Century Medias Records, Los Angeles based WARBRINGER are now debuting the first song from the album, “Hunter- Seeker.”

 

Check out “Hunter-Seeker” debut on Decibel Magazine‘s website:

http://www.decibelmagazine.com/featured/exclusive-warbringer-hunter-seeker-lyric-video/

 

 

WARBRINGER had this to say about the the track: “Hunter-Seeker was the last song completed for the album, yet we feel is one of the strongest tracks to be presented to our fans as the first single. The music was composed and arranged by Carlos Cruz, and the lyrics were a collaboration between John Kevill and Cruz. Kevill had the title in mind before the lyrics were written, though the idea was to write about the instilled sense of fear and paranoia within humans with the recent leak in the mainstream media of the NSA’s operations of our surveillance. Since 2007, Operation PRISM has been in effect; without consent of the people, and those in compliance have been all major internet providers and social media networks who have allowed the NSA to collect everything a user does on the world-wide web. When structured into lyrics, the subject gelled well with the songs dynamic of relentless, yet bleak music.”

 

IV: Empires Collapse was recorded with producer Steve Evetts (Sepultura, The Dillinger Escape Plan, Suicide Silence), mixed by Brett Eliason (Pearl Jam, Heart, BoySetsFire) and mastered by Alan Douches / West West Side Music (Cannibal Corpse, Hatebreed, Converge). The album’s cover artwork was designed by Adrienne Rozzi.

WARBRINGER announce new album IV: Empires Collapse

Los Angeles thrashers WARBRINGER are back with their fourth studio album programmatically entitled, IV: EMPIRES COLLAPSE and is set for release on October 29via Century Medias Records.

 

IV: EMPIRES COLLAPSE is the studio recording debut of former Mantic Ritual members Jeff Potts (Guitar) and Ben Mottsman (Bass) rounding off WARBRINGER’s five-piece line-up.  The album was recorded by producer Steve Evetts (Sepultura, The Dillinger Escape Plan, Suicide Silence), mixed by Brett Eliason (Pearl Jam, Heart, BoySetsFire) andmastered by Alan Douches / West West Side Music (Cannibal Corpse, Hatebreed, Converge). The album’s cover artwork, which can be seen above, was designed by Adrienne Rozzi.

 

The band commented on the artwork as follows: “The artwork for “Empires Collapse” came about from wanting to take a much more focused and simplistic approach. Previous WARBRINGER album covers are extremely detailed, busy works, so it was a conscious decision to have art that was the antithesis of what we had done before. John Laux came up with the concept, so we had our friend Adrienne Rozzi to make up a sketch, which led to us having her follow through with the final piece. It’s incredibly different from what most fans would expect for a WARBRINGER album cover, but we wanted the art to visually reflect the music. The piece reminds us of a Tarot Card illustration and sets a very cryptic, somber vibe which associates well with the music that ties into the album’s title.”

WARBRINGER enters studio today to begin recording fourth full-length album

Los Angeles thrashers WARBRINGER have entered the studio today to begin recording the follow-up to their critically acclaimed third album, Worlds Torn Asunder. The band will once again be working with producer Steve Evetts (THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN, SEPULTURA, SYMPHONY X) on this currently untitled new full-length at his studio, The Omen Room, in Garden Grove, CA. Set to record for a month’s time, WARBRINGER has already written 11 songs that explore the band’s diversity and musicianship while also remaining true to their signature fast and heavy thrash attack.

Drummer Carlos Cruz comments about entering the studio:

“Moving forward with our 4th full-length album has been a tremendous feat for the band and we are proud of the album we’ve written. The growth of the band with two new members (guitarist Jeff Potts and bassist Ben Mottsman) has produced a very eclectic sounding album that covers a lot of musical ground within the Heavy Metal genre. It’s been a true collaboration and all five members have been able to write and contribute something new to the collective WARBRINGER sound. We hope all our fans will keep an open-mind towards our musical growth, but we promise no one will be disappointed.


Deciding to work with Steve Evetts again was the best decision for the group because of our prior experience with him. His personality, attention to detail and ability to sonically capture what the band represents will make for an amazing 4th album experience. Two years is a long time to improve upon your craft, so we’re excited to see what has become of Steve as a producer, and for him to see what has become of WARBRINGER since our last album. Looking forward to recording in the Summer So-Cal heat!”

-Carlos

This upcoming album is tentatively scheduled for an October release via Century Media Records. WARBRINGER will be touring North America with KREATOR and OVERKILL this fall in support of this release, in addition to playing some one-off shows around the world. See below for all confirmed dates.

WARBRINGER announces South American dates

WARBRINGER announces South American dates; new lineup featuring MANTIC RITUAL’s Ben Mottsman and Jeff Potts confirmed

This year WARBRINGER has been working on new material but will take a break this weekend for their first trip to South America.

 

“It’s a tremendous feeling to have heavy metal fans in South America continuously ask us to perform in their home countries, let alone have promoters willing to invest in us to finally make this happen,” states drummer Carlos Cruz. “This 3-day weekend of performances will hopefully open the door to more opportunities for WARBRINGER to perform in many more countries there for the demanding fans. It’s fact that South America upholds a die-hard heavy metal fanbase, and we’ll be sure to NOT disappoint!”

 

Here’s a quick video commercial for the shows:

The lineup for these shows will be the same lineup that has been touring together since last summer, which included 6 weeks of European dates and 10 headlining shows in Australia. Despite sharing the road for almost a year, the group never made an official announcement about guitarist Jeff Potts and bassist Ben Mottsman (both formerly of MANTIC RITUAL) joining the hard-working band– until now.

 

Cruz explains about this new lineup:

 

“Nearly 10 years in, over 1000 performances and countless miles traveled worldwide, WARBRINGER has to take whatever measures necessary in order to continue to move forward. More than ever, with the addition of Ben Mottsman on bass and Jeff Potts on guitar, the band has the strongest personal chemistry and musicianship to date. Being long time friends, it was picture perfect to bring them on board with their collective experience as working musicians. It’s funny to recall being the first person to accidentally run into them on the street in Hollywood when they first moved out to L.A. with MANTIC RITUAL in 2008, and now it has come full circle to have them join WARBRINGER.”

WARBRINGER announces special shows to commemorate 5th year anniversary of, ‘War Without End’

Thrash stalwarts WARBRINGER have announced four shows over Memorial Day weekend to commemorate the 5th year anniversary of their debut album, War Without End– and as a special bonus for Los Angeles and San Francisco fans, the band will also perform the album in its entirety at these show! In regards to these upcoming dates, frontman John Kevill comments:

“We have been busy writing songs for our new album, so it’s been awhile since we’ve played any shows. We’re doing something a little different at the LA and San Francisco gigs — since it’s been 5 years since the first album, ‘War Without End,’ was released — we are gonna play the whole album at those shows, which includes a lot of songs we haven’t played in 4 or so years. We’re gonna absolutely rip through these tunes as fast and as hard as possible. See you guys out there! More Warbringer news coming soon, keep your eyes peeled.

Signing off,”
-Kevill
