Warbringer Premiere “Glorious End” Lyric Video

Warbringer have premiered a lyric video for their new song “Glorious End.” This track is from the band’s new album “Weapons Of Tomorrow,“ which will be released on April 24.

John Kevill commented:

“‘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.”

Warbringer Premiere “The Black Hand Reaches Out” Video

Warbringer have premiered a new video for their new song “The Black Hand Reaches Out.” This track is from the band’s new album “Weapons Of Tomorrow,“ which will be released on April 24.

John Kevill commented:

“‘The Black Hand Reaches Out‘ is the second track we are releasing from Weapons of Tomorrow, along with an accompanying music video. The song and video both reference the Serbian paramilitary nationalist group, known as “The Black Hand.” This was the organization that plotted the Franz Ferdinand assassination in Sarajevo – probably the most consequential terrorist attack of all time.

Not a conspiracy theory, but an actual conspiracy. The song’s lyrics represent the orders coming from the organization to the (expendable) agent. The song itself is a mid-tempo stomper with a sneaky, clandestine feel, and is one of the many different forms of thrash assault that we are bringing to you all with Weapons of Tomorrow.”

Warbringer Reveal Details For New Album “Weapons Of Tomorrow”

Warbringer will be releasing their new album “Weapons Of Tomorrow” on April 24. The effort’s first single, a remastered, final album mix version of “Firepower Kills,” can be streamed below:

John Kevill said the following:

“‘Weapons Of Tomorrow‘ contains two tracks you’ve previously heard, ‘Firepower Kills‘ and ‘Power Unsurpassed‘, which now appear on the record in new and improved form. ‘Firepower Kills‘ is about advancing weapons technology. Modern science is an enormously powerful tool, and the human species must be very cautious about its use.

This song looks at the last 100 years of scientific advances in weaponry and asks, ‘where does this lead?’ Musically, it’s a total thrashing burner, and the main riff ‘evolves’ throughout the song like the weaponry in the lyrics.”

He continued:

“I put a lot of thought and detail into the lyrical content of this album. There’s often a ‘storytelling’ component, in which the song’s lyrics develop or turn along with the music and structure of the song. All in all, ‘Weapons of Tomorrow‘ contains elements of our previous album, ‘Woe to the Vanquished‘, but takes them further and in new and exciting directions.”

He also added:

“While containing speed-driven burners like ‘Firepower Kills‘ and ‘Unraveling‘ and crushing stomps like ‘The Black Hand Reaches Out‘ and ‘Crushed Beneath the Tracks,’ ‘Weapons Of Tomorrow‘ goes really big on the epic tracks, containing not one but four. Each has its own character.

The forlorn and semi-ballad ‘Defiance of Fate‘ breaks serious musical ground for us and is like no song in our catalogue. ‘Heart of Darkness‘ and ‘Notre Dame (King of Fools)‘ offer different takes on a dark, black metal-oriented sound, and ‘Glorious End‘ is a tragic war epic with a unique lyrical component.”

“Weapons Of Tomorrow” Track Listing:

01. “Firepower Kills”
02. “The Black Hand Reaches Out”
03. “Crushed Beneath The Tracks”
04. “Defiance Of Fate”
05. “Unraveling”

Warbringer Premiere New Song “Firepower Kills”

Warbringer have premiered a new song titled “Firepower Kills.” This track is from their new album, which is expected to be released in February. John Kevill commented:

“‘Firepower Kills‘ is the album opener and is a rapid-fire thrash burner, with both lyrics and music following the theme of the rapidly evolving and really frightening side of technology. We’ve been playing this tune nightly on the current tour and it’s been highly well-received. We are right in the middle of this massive North American tour with Enforcer and have left a wake of fire over much of the continent. More updates on Warbringer incoming… yes, the future looks bright!”
