Los Angeles thrashers WARBRINGER have been locked away in The Omen Room studio with producer Steve Evetts (DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN, SEPULTURA, SYMPHONY X) for the past few months and are about to complete their next masterpiece, IV: Empires Collapse. The next level results of the new album are due to each band member pushing their own abilities and working together on the complex arrangements as well as the simple hooks.
IV: Empires Collapse is a collective work between the five band members and the producers. "Musically, all five of us brought something for the rest of the group to work off of and we were all a part of chiseling away at the ideas", says drummer Carlos Cruz of the recording process. "Having five band members with eclectic tastes in music from crust punk to progressive music and everything in between brought about new musical directions for the material."
The band has been documenting the recording process via social networking and capturing everything on film. Here is the latest update:
IV: Empires Collapse will be released October 15th via Century Media Records.
Warbringer will be touring North America with KREATOR and OVERKILL this fall, in addition to playing some one-off shows around the world.
