With upcoming tour dates this spring and summer that include performances at Inkcarceration Music and Tattoo Festival and the Toledo Death Fest (all dates listed below), North Carolina, USA groove metal warriors WoR are giving fans a taste of what’s to come with their latest video featuring new drummer Dylan Jenkins.
Last year the quintet entered a hunting cabin in the middle of the Appalachian Mountains in Asheville, NC to rehearse their setlist with Jenkins who has put his own spin on some of the older material and injected it with new life. The outcome were three live-off-the-floor videos filmed. The band has revealed the first two „Hiraeth” and „Caged”, and today they share their third and final video „Sirens” from that session.
The band comments:
„During the pandemic, we spent a lot of time behind closed doors working on refining our craft. We worked on old music and wrote a bunch of new music. We decided to film one of these sessions, isolated in a hunting cabin in the Appalachian Mountains, away from the chaos of everyday life. Just the 5 of us jamming”.
Perfectly titled „The Asheville Sessions”, WoR‘s third video „Sirens” showcases their refreshed blasting call to the pit, which can be viewed at https://youtu.be/fhWT2Wg0Dg4
“Sirens is a song that is lyrically more relevant today than any other song. Sirens speaks out against police brutality and the abuse of power in a corrupt system. A super groovy song with a deeper meaning.” adds the band.
Their first and second videos from the series can be viewed at the following links:
Throwing in elements of thrash, metalcore, and even hardcore punk, everyone in WoR has taken a different musical path and the variety of influences shows through in the unique and original sound on their debut release “Prisoners”, which is an extremely energetic journey from start to finish. Groovy, raw, and old school, WoR is suitable for all fans of metal especially those with an interest in Machine Head, Sepultura, and Gojira.
