On Friday (31), Warbringer’s Napalm Records fifth album and Napalm Records debut Woe to the Vanquished, will be released. However, you don’t have to wait that long to hear it, as it’s streaming below, courtesy of Loudwire. While it’s their first album in four years, it’s come at an opportune time, as ’80s-influenced thrash metal is top of mind following Power Trip’s sophomore album being released a few weeks ago. Like that album, this is a rager that stands on it’s own regardless of genre.
After a tumultuous split in 2014 that found them considering breaking up, the band persevered, bringing guitarist Adam Carroll back to the band for the first time since 2011, and the eight-track album finds the band firing on all cylinders. While you’ve likely had some time to digest some of the album via “Silhouettes,” “Shellfire” and “Remain Violent,” you’ll find the whole album comes together as a whole nicely.
Woe to the Vanquished will be released on March 31st on Napalm Records, and can be preordered here.
