The Oakland-based thrash quintet CULTURAL WARFARE has unveiled the title track of their debut full-length album, “Warmageddon,” due Sept. 14 via M-Theory Audio. A lyric video, created by LVMP, can be seen below.
Explains vocalist Jacques Serrano, “’Warmageddon’ is loosely related to the song ‘Future Kill’ off our debut EP. It is a continuation of the demise of human religions, beliefs and overall way of life. Warmageddon is when the Blood Machines begin their brutal takeover of all humanity, erasing all symbols of the humans way of life. The world is being overwhelmed with technology and machines to where they treat the human race as cattle. Life as we knew it is over, and now humans must hide and hopefully prepare for a rebellion, but it is a time when it seems all that are left are the meek.”
CULTURAL WARFARE has announced several West Coast performances to celebrate the release of “Warmageddon,” including a pair of shows alongside Exmortus and Hatchet. A complete list of their upcoming shows appears below.
The Bay Area has a legacy for great music throughout the decades, and the influence of the region’s thrash metal bands on the international scene is unparalleled. With their unique combination of traditional metal and aggressive, melodic thrash, CULTURAL WARFARE furthers the area’s legacy and proves that thrash is undoubtedly alive and well.
