Los Angeles black metal group WARWIND recently signed to Metal Assault Records, and has now unveiled details surrounding their debut full-length, Arise.
Arise will be released by Metal Assault Records on October 23 2020, on digipak CD, limited-edition cassette tape, and on all digital platforms. Pre-orders for the album as well as merch bundles will be launched on the next “Bandcamp Friday”, i.e. September 4, at 00:00 Pacific Time, on metalassault.bandcamp.com. Every purchase of the CD, cassette tape, or merch bundle will come with a free digital download of the album.
Keeping with the ongoing pattern set by the MAR signings till date, Warwind is stylistically different from all the other bands on the roster. They’re the first out-and-out black metal band to get signed to MAR, expanding the label’s horizons further. But the bigger reason for the band getting signed is the sheer power of the musicianship on offer, which truly makes them one of the more promising bands emerging out of the Los Angeles scene.
Arise is a compelling 10-track slab of quintessential black metal, an album well-poised to mark a stellar full-length debut for the band, possessing all that it takes to satiate enthusiasts of the sub-genre and turn first-timers into lifelong fans.
