WOVENWAR: Drum Playthrough Video For New Song 'World On Fire'

On October 21, WOVENWAR, the band featuring the talents of Jordan Mancino (drums), Nick Hipa (guitar) and Josh Gilbert (bass) of San Diego, California based metal act AS I LAY DYING, and Shane Blay (vocals) of OH, SLEEPER, will release its sophomore album, "Honor Is Dead", via Metal Blade Records. More aggressive and fluid than its self-titled predecessor, "Honor Is Dead" was written with contributions from all members, while the music for "Wovenwar" was mostly written before Blay joined the band. The results speak for themselves, capturing a group that sounds truly unified, and hungry.

For a second preview of "Honor Is Dead", a drum playthrough video for the song "World On Fire", can be viewed below.

For "Honor Is Dead", WOVENWAR chose not to converge at the same studio to lay down the record, taking advantage of modern technology instead by recording their individual parts in convenient locales across California, Alabama and Texas.

Hipa told Loudwire about "Honor Is Dead": "With this album, we knew that it was going to be a lot more aggressive and a little bit more intense. I think musically and lyrically there was just a lot of weight that we wanted to get off of ourselves. I think that comes off just in the form of aggression and I think we captured that."

He continued: "Everybody contributed and lent their talents to something that all seems to be pretty congruent. So think we achieved what we always want to achieve, which is really representing ourselves and capturing who we are and what we have to offer. So yeah, I'm proud of it."

WOVENWAR recently announced the exit of guitarist Phil Sgrosso. Mancino told Alternative Press about the split: "We just wanted to go in different directions, in terms of touring commitments. It was something that we talked about like adults and understood each other's perspectives. Right now, because he was still a big part of the creative process making 'Honor Is Dead' — and we've yet to tour — it feels like business as usual, but we'll see how his absence affects things as we move forward."
