WARBEAST Guitarist Explains New Album Title

On August 27, Japan Nick of WMSC 90.3's "Japan Nick's Rock And Metal Pandemonium" conducted an interview with guitarist Scott Shelby of Texas thrashers WARBEAST. You can now listen to the chat using the SoundCloud player below.

WARBEAST is the Texas-based band featuring RIGOR MORTIS vocalist Bruce Corbitt, Shelby, GAMMACIDE/DEVILFIST bassist Alan Bovee, DEMONSEED drummer Joe Gonzalez, guitarist Bobby Tillotson (a.k.a. "J.R."), and bassist Dré Karst.

The group is currently on the road in the U.S. as the support act for DOWN.

A pair of previously unreleased tracks from WARBEAST"IT" and "Birth Of A Psycho" — will be made available on a split EP with two songs from the forthcoming solo album from former PANTERA and current DOWN frontman Philip Anselmo. Entitled "War Of The Gargantuas", the EP is scheduled for release on October 9 through Anselmo's Housecore Records.

WARBEAST's recently completed sophomore album, "Destroy", is due in January via Housecore. Shelby told "Japan Nick's Rock And Metal Pandemonium" about the new CD title, "I just had the image of the new album [being] called 'Destroy', 'cause the first one [2010's 'Krush The Enemy'] was crushing to me, and I thought 'Destroy' kind of fit the approach on this one. And the subject matter of [the album's title track] is, when you're a UFC fighter or you're a band like us, and when you hit the stage, your objective is just to destroy all oncoming opposers. So that's kind of what the track's about, and that's kind of our approach live — just to destroy. We like to attack the crowd and get 'em moving, and that's kind of the point of this song."

Bassist Alan Bovee recently left WARBEAST for family reasons.

"Krush The Enemy" was released in the U.S. on April 27, 2010 via Housecore.
