Warbeast is a group of five pissed-off Texans, allied to keep thrash alive in a world that needs a firm headbanging. Made of ex-Rigor Mortis singer Bruce Corbitt, Gammacide guitarists Rick Perry and Scott Shelby, bassist Alan Bovee, and Joe Gonzales (Demonseed) on drums, Warbeast is the best new thrash that I’ve heard since Evile and Lazarus A.D. hit the scene with their breakout albums. Krush the Enemy, the crushing debut, has been released on Phil Anselmo’s Housecore Records. With brilliant instrumentation and mayhemic execution, the music on this offering will appeal to fans of retro-thrash and to those who just love metal. Like a sonic concoction of Death Angel, Slayer, and Lamb of God, with the heartiness of Euro thrash, Warbeast does it right. The brutal “Krush the Enemy,” starts the pit party, and every song thereafter is pure bliss. No shit. The driving guitar work of Perry and Shelby is addictive, exhibiting style and sounds of Holt, Hammett, Hanneman (“H” is the letter today), and other greats who helped forged the scene.

The poignant and electrifyingly brutal “Stalker” is a song dedicated to all the girls who've had a stalker. An excerpt: “Saturday night you’re out on the town, your friends drink and dance. Across the room I watch your body sweat, you never give me a fucking glance…” The closer, “We are the Vultures” would be a good track to download to find out if you might like the record. I am not trying to win points with the band or their publicist, Krush the Enemy is one of 2010’s best albums and you’ll like it, too. Period.
