Warbringer

More retro thrash from southern California, which seems to have an excess of such bands (Merciless Death, Fueled By Fire, and Bonded By Blood, to name three). Warbringer put out a self-financed EP in 2006 and were promptly snapped up by Century Media for their 2008 full-length debut, War Without End, where they've prospered since, with four albums to their name. Plenty of energy and enthusiasm here, these guys are clearly on par with their aforementioned neighbors, and while this trend may not last forever, it's an enjoyable ride for the time being.
