Fans of the band Warbringer will be excited about this news since it seems the thrashing maniacs that we came to know on Century Media Records have now signed onto Napalm Records. Check out the full press release and statements below.
The Press Release:
Napalm Records is proud and honored to announce the signing of US Thrash Metallers WARBRINGER! Started in 2004 by High School fellow metal heads, the members of Los Angeles’ own WARBRINGER have made their way up through the metal scene. After four releases and an endless succession of tours with the likes of Arch Enemy, Exodus, Suicide Silence, Megadeth, Napalm Death, Iced Earth, Kreator to name just a few, this hard working five-piece is ready to take the next step together with Napalm Records.
John Kevill, front man of WARBRINGER comments on the signing:
“We are excited to announce a new record deal with Napalm Records! We have been writing for the last couple months, the riffs are flowing and the new material is sounding goddamn lethal. We are planning to record at the end of summer and release it early next year, followed by a full worldwide touring campaign. The writing is being led by longtime members drummer Carlos Cruz and guitarist Adam Carroll, as well as myself, and we are being joined by Chase Becker on the lead guitar and Jessie Sanchez dropping the bass-hammer.
I’ve been on a mission to make this record for three years since Empires… was released, and it’s great to see it finally coming to fruition. Thank you all the people at Napalm Records for their interest in the band, and thank you to the fans for your continued and undying support, We’ll see you out there next year. Keep it heavy my friends! Signing off.”
Sebastian Muench, A&R Napalm Records states:
“I have been following WARBRINGER´s progress throughout the last 4 fantastic releases and am extremely confident that with the band’s first release under the Napalm banner WARBRINGER could step in the footsteps of Thrash Metal Titans like Exodus, Kreator or Testament! We will work our asses off to make the album a success! Welcome to the Napalm family!”
The band is currently in the studio recording their upcoming masterpiece. Stay tuned for more info!
WARBRINGER is: John Kevill – Vocals, Adam Carroll – Guitar, Chase Becker – Guitar, Jessie Sanchez – Bass and Carlos Cruz – Drums

PiercingMetal Thoughts: There was a time not too long ago when audiences would catch Warbringer on the touring runs for every 3 or 4 out of 6 tours that were coming through their respective towns. Some loved them and some grew tired of it but that never took away from the bands being able to rile up the storm at each show. I always gave them that credit and think that perhaps Napalm Records will be a good home for their sound as they aim for the future. Keep your eyes set on the Events Calendar that we keep here on the website so you will know right away when they are heading your way. Good luck on the new signing guys I am sure that we will be aiming the lens at you again sometime soon.
