Wage War reshapes Metalcore

When I first heard the single "alive" I could not believe how tight and clean the song was. My immediate thought was "these guys are going to revive the genre", and they are continuing to show me what it truly means to revive an incredibly stale sound. The released singles are flawless, and I anticipate better things to come. One of the cleanest mixes I've heard in years, mesmerizing instrumentals, and vocals that lull you into a sense of security, with their powerfully entrancing choruses, only to bring you out of that entrancement with a punch to the throat....simply put, this is the face of Metalcore. Buy it. Support the Ocala boys.

About Wage War

Down in Ocala, Florida, two guitarists met in high school and the seeds of a band were sown. Those friends, Cody Quistad and Seth Blake, recruited singer Briton Bond, bassist Jordan Pierce, and drummer David Rau, forming the band Empires. In 2013, after a change in lineup (Chris Gaylord on bass and Stephen Kluesener on drums), Wage War were born. The melodic metalcore band combined a brutal punch with a positive message, signing with Fearless Records. They recorded their first album, Blueprints, which was released in late 2015. Co-produced by fellow Ocalan Jeremy McKinnon (A Day to Remember) and Andrew Wade (Neck Deep, A Ghost Inside), the LP was preceded by the ferocious singles "Alive" and "Twenty One." After touring in support of the album, the band returned to the studio to record a follow-up. In 2017, Wage War returned with "Witness," the first single from their sophomore set, Deadweight. ~ Neil Z. Yeung
