Warbringer is an American thrash metal band which formed in 2004 as “Onslaught” but changed their name after learning that a UK thrash metal band was already using the name.

Century Media Records signed Warbringer after seeing them at a local show in LA. Originally, Century Media was at the show to see another LA thrash metal band but decided to sign Warbringer instead.

Current members:

John Kevill – Vocals

John Laux – Guitar

Adam Carroll – Guitar (formerly drums)

Ben Bennett – Bass

Nic Ritter – Drums

The band released 2 demos (in year 2004 and 2005).

In 2006, Warbringer released their first EP album called “One By One, The Wicked Fall”.

In 2008, Warbringer became one of the best known new thrash metal band, just after releasing their studio length album “War Without End“ on February 5th 2008, recorded at Century Media Records Compan, and produced by Bill Metoyer.

    -”A Dead Current” is an instrumental track and begins after a minute of silence. The song itself is 2:02….
    WTF about this philosophy enno 1 minute out of 2 mins song are silence ?!?!?!:P:P:P lol

  • Yves

    I think the 1 minute silence has something to do with the word “dead” in the song’s name, it’s similar to how they take a 1 min silence in the memory of someone. Hope that answered your question ralph 😛
    And concerning the band, it’s a damn good one, having earned so much success from their first full-length. Expecting even better material from the new album.

    Loved the band; thrash metal did witness a revival with these new bands who were heavily influenced by the old bands who dominated the 80’s and early 90’s.

  • Jad Jawhari

    Thrash Metal was at it’s best during the 80’s and 90’s now its not that good compared to those periods. Back in the day when kreator were underground and old school the same thing with metallican and slayer and venom. That was the real thrash. The pure underground Thrash.
