A few years ago, Warbringer was an opener at some concert I attended. I wasn’t all that impressed, so it was with some trepidation that I went into the review of the band’s new album Woe to the Vanquished.
Sometimes a band who purposely misspells their name is one to not take too seriously (White Wizzard, Ratt, Enuff Z’nuff, Limp Bizkit, et. al.). Of course there are exceptions on the other side (Amorphis, Megadeth, Kreator, Vektor). Panikk not only used an alternative spelling, but two “Ks”? Not sure what I’m getting into here.
When I was in Chicago, it seemed like Power Trip rolled through every six months or so. I never did catch them live, and now, after giving Nightmare Logic (Southern Lord) some time on my music schedule, I wish I had seen them.
I don’t think there is anything I can say about Overkill that hasn’t been said before, by me or pretty much any other fan of Thrash Metal. I’m simply amazed that after all this time, they still sound fresh, relevant, and aren’t afraid to stick to their guns.
