Debut Album “Prisoners” Out Now!
Unleashing their debut album “Prisoners” earlier this month on August 7th via Bungalo Records/Universal, Raleigh, USA’s groove metal brigade WoR are sharing their next music video “Caged”. With their music focusing on various current events. The theme of the debut full length speaks to the idea that people are prisoners in a system that is failing them. The song “Caged” specifically engages on this issue in a variety of literal and figurative ways.
The band adds:
“This is the last song we wrote and it almost didn’t make it onto the album, because it was written so late in the pre-production process. ‘Caged’ was our second single released. This track is straight-up groovy, heavy, and even just plain nasty at points.”
The music video for “Caged” can be viewed via its premiere on MetalInjection HERE.
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. “Prisoners” is a little bit melodic and a little bit old school, and completely energetic.
The record is an extreme journey from start to finish, a metal album through and through. There are no clean guitars on the whole album, just heavy and groovy riffs. WoR shares their excitement for the release:
“This album has been in the works for several years and we finally get to show you what we have been working on nonstop for the last year. From front to back, this album is meant to take you on a heavy metal journey. It features groovy tracks such as Predator, brutal songs such as Caged, and melodic anthems such as VI Kings. While the songs are groovy and meant to give your neck whiplash, the lyrics are deep and thought out. The messages behind these songs are ones of resilience and overcoming. If you enjoy heavy riffs, melodic overtones, and just straight-up angry and in your face METAL, this album is for you!”
Groovy, raw, and old school, WoR is suitable for all fans of metal especially those with an interest in Machine Head, Sepultura, and Gojira.
“Prisoners” is available on Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon, Google Play, Bandcamp.
