WARBEAST TO RELEASE THEIR DEBUT ALBUM KRUSH THE ENEMY APRIL 27th ON HOUSECORE RECORDS
ALBUM PRODUCED BY PHILIP H. ANSELMO
With the “retro-thrash” trend back in full-swing and hordes of bands trying to recreate “old school metal”, Texas monsters WARBEAST offer the real thing. Their music is not the result of careful study of 80’s thrash or classic metal; it just comes naturally because that is who they are.
The roots of WARBEAST are firmly entrenched in the legendary 80’s Texas underground metal scene. Vocalist Bruce Corbitt was the voice of speed metal splatter kings Rigor Mortis, who achieved major label success on Capitol Records in 1988. Guitarists Rick Perry and Scott Shelby were the masters behind the riff machine Gammacide, one of Texas’ most furious thrash exports. Bassist Alan Bovee joined Gammacide when they re-united in 2006, and drum tornado Joe Gonzalez provided blast beats and mayhem for Dallas death metal band Demonseed.
