Warbeast are a band from Texas that plays a very aggressive form of thrash metal with a touch of death metal and this is a review of their 2017 album "Enter The Arena" which will be released in August by Housecore Records.
Sci fi style soundscapes start off the album before going into more of a heavier thrash metal direction while the faster sections of the songs also bring in a great amount of blast beats and after awhile aggressive shouting and screaming are added onto the recording along with all of the musical instruments sounding very powerful.
While the music is heavily rooted in the mid 80's it still maintains a very modern atmosphere while the solos and leads also remain very true to an old school style of extreme metal and you can also hear a decent amount of melody in the guitar riffing and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and war and movie samples are used briefly as the album progresses along with a couple of the tracks being long and epic in length and at times the music adds in a touch of 80's era death metal.
Warbeast plays a style of thrash that has its roots in the 80's while still being heavy enough for the modern era, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover violence, hatred, war and horror themes.
In my opinion Warbeast are a very great sounding brutal thrash metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Centuries Of Poisoned Soil" "Maze Of The Monotaur" "The Scalping" and "Ancient Hate". 8 out of 10.
