North Carolina, USA groove metal warriors WoR are sharing their next video from rehearsals with new drummer Dylan Jenkins.
With upcoming performances at Blue Ridge Rock Festival on September 11th in Danville, Virginia plus tour dates in October with Battlecross and The Convalescence, the band entered a hunting cabin in the middle of the Appalachian Mountains in Asheville, NC to rehearse their set with Jenkins who has put his own spin on some of the older material and injected it with new life.
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 second video showcases the refreshed shredding ripper “Caged”, which can be viewed at https://youtu.be/qECYHN5ve0Q
“Caged was one of our stronger singles from the album “Prisoners” and in the Asheville sessions we revamped it even more. Always a powerful track live, it was a cool experience to perform in it such a unique musical setting.” adds the band.
Their first video “Hiraeth” from a series of more to be revealed can also be viewed at https://youtu.be/J-NRDd81lqo
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.
