WARBRINGER Drop "The Black Hand Reaches Out" Video

New Album, Weapons of Tomorrow, Out April 24

SoCal thrash metal force WARBRINGER recently announced the upcoming release of their brand new full-length album, Weapons of Tomorrow, out April 24 via Napalm Records. Today, the band has dropped a throttling, cinematic new music video for their brand new single, “The Black Hand Reaches Out” – both of which reference the events surrounding the assassination of Franz Ferdinand – an event that is commonly believed to have spurred the start of WWI.

Check out the brand new video below, directed by Lenny Vitulli of Red Riot Films, which also features acting cameos from the band members themselves!

WARBRINGER vocalist John Kevill says:

""The Black Hand Reaches Out" is the second track we are releasing from Weapons of Tomorrow, along with an accompanying music video. The song and video both reference the Serbian paramilitary nationalist group, known as "The Black Hand." This was the organization that plotted the Franz Ferdinand assassination in Sarajevo – probably the most consequential terrorist attack of all time. Not a conspiracy theory, but an actual conspiracy. The song's lyrics represent the orders coming from the organization to the (expendable) agent. The song itself is a mid-tempo stomper with a sneaky, clandestine feel, and is one of the many different forms of thrash assault that we are bringing to you all with Weapons of Tomorrow.”

Watch the new official music video for “The Black Hand Reaches Out” on KNAC.COM HERE.

Weapons of Tomorrow was recorded with acclaimed producer Mike Plotnikoff – producer on Woe To The Vanquished and for artists such as IN FLAMES and FEAR FACTORY – and mixed by Zack Ohren, who is credited for the mix on WARBRINGER’s sophomore album, Waking Into Nightmares, as well as his work with artists like MACHINE HEAD and IMMOLATION.

Weapons of Tomorrow contains a variety of themes, presenting a self-contained concept with each track, but ultimately focuses on the over-arching notion of modern technology endangering society rather than advancing it.

John Kevill says about the lyrical content of Weapons of Tomorrow:

“I put a lot of thought and detail into the lyrical content of this album. There’s often a ‘storytelling’ component, in which the song’s lyrics develop or turn along with the music and structure of the song. All in all, Weapons of Tomorrow contains elements of our previous album, Woe to the Vanquished, but takes them further and in new and exciting directions.”

Regarding the band’s advancing sound, Kevill adds:

“While containing speed-driven burners like "Firepower Kills" and "Unraveling" and crushing stomps like "The Black Hand Reaches Out" and "Crushed Beneath the Tracks", Weapons of Tomorrow goes really big on the epic tracks, containing not one but four. Each has its own character. The forlorn and semi-ballad "Defiance of Fate" breaks serious musical ground for us and is like no song in our catalogue. "Heart of Darkness" and "Notre Dame (King of Fools)" offer different takes on a dark, black metal-oriented sound, and “Glorious End” is a tragic war epic with a unique lyrical component.”

  • "Firepower Kills"
  • "The Black Hand Reaches Out"
