Warlord Rock the Foe Hammer

With a name and title that either implies some sort of Manowar worship or black metal leanings, Warlord prove that old book and cover theory by not only being good, but by being something totally unexpected. Noise rock, metal, stomp rock? Warlord is nothing if not abrasive, tipping their axes to the likes of Unsane, Willpower-era Today is the Day and the defunct Cable. Warlord’s chosen path of righteous musically destruction was overseen by the Reverend Steve Austin (T.I.T.D.), and while Rock the Foe Hammer strays a bit to close to its influences, the non-stop noise assault is still damaging nevertheless.
