M-Theory Audio in cooperation with thrash metal force WARBRINGER and Century Media Records is pleased to announce the upcoming vinyl reissues of three of the band's iconic albums on March 8, 2024. Limited to 500 copies each these three albums follow a similar format Century Media presented in 2018 when they reissued the debut War Without End with each title being presented in a gatefold jacket format with colored vinyl including all bonus tracks from each cycle and a poster, but we've gone one step further and included extensive liner notes from WARBRINGER vocalist John Kevill on an insert with added pics.

These vinyl reissues will be available in store March 8th, or preorder now at our webstore www.m-theoryaudio.com/store or Bandcamp https://warbringerofficial.bandcamp.com

"We'll give you what you've been waiting for!" Another badass collaboration with M-Theory Audio - prepare for the 2024 vinyl reissue of Waking Into Nightmares, Worlds Torn Asunder and IV: Empires Collapse! All pressed on colored vinyl and including bonus tracks! Limited pressings, so don't sleep on these or the cassettes!" cites drummer Carlos Cruz.

"We are pleased to see these three Warbringer records reissued on LP! These have been unavailable for a while now, so we are glad that they will be available again for you all to add to your collections," states vocalist John Kevill. "Thanks to all of you metalheads out there for continuing to jam our records - as always, play it loud!"

2009's Waking Into Nightmares showcased a band who'd spent the past year on the road and sandwiched the writing and recording of this stellar beast, that introduced some death metal elements, between tours and witness the tightness and precision come to the fore, especially backed by then-new drummer Nic Ritter (RIP). This one includes the infamous demo song "Road Warrior" re-recorded along with album producer Gary Holt (Exodus/Slayer) ripping a guest guitar solo plus a cover of Swedish Death Metal stalwarts UNLEASHED's "Execute Them All" originally part of the Century Media anniversary compilation Covering 20 Years of Extreme. The album was recorded at Oakland's Sharkbite Studios, and mixed/mastered by Zach Ohren (Machine Head, Immolation) at Castle Ultimate Studios. Waking Into Nightmares features cover art by Dan Segrave (Morbid Angel, Suffocation).

Two years later, came Worlds Torn Asunder that featured Carlos Cruz entering the ranks and further progressing their sound with producer Steve Evetts (Symphony X, Sepultura) behind the board, and the reissue tacks on their covers of MOTORHEAD's "(We Are the) Road Crew", which has become a WARBRINGER live favorite, and BATHORY's "Sacrifice". Once adorned with cover art by the aforementioned Dan Seagrave (Entombed, Malevolent Creation).

And finally, the experimental IV: Empires Collapse, produced by Steve Evetts again but this time mixed by Brett Eliason (Pearl Jam, Avenged Sevenfold), which is the only album to include MANIC RITUAL members Jeff Potts (guitar) and Ben Mottsman (bass) and to include writing contributions from all members that highlighted a more diverse effort, including punk and black metal elements, which while at first was misunderstood has become a standout for many fans. This one includes their rendition of LED ZEPPELIN's "Communication Breakdown".

These three albums follow a recent cassette reissue campaign, including a box set of seven cassettes - the band's entire discography including demos. Box sets and some individual cassette titles of the band's first 4 albums out Feb 9th) available as well through our webstore and Bandcamp.

Formed in late 2004, WARBRINGER has gone on to be one of the most consistent and well-regarded thrash metal bands of the new generation. After releasing two demos, the band broke out with their 2008 debut, War Without End - a record illustrating a frantic energy and aggression which had been absent from metal for some time. The band continued to redefine their sound on each of their next four career-defining albums - 2009's Waking Into Nightmares, 2011's Worlds Torn Asunder, 2013's Warbringer IV: Empires Collapse and 2017's Woe To The Vanquished, their first via Napalm Records (Billboard - #8 New Artist Albums, #17 Hard Music Albums, #26 Current Rock and #29 Independent Current Albums). WARBRINGER has bolstered their performance roster by relentlessly touring internationally throughout five continents with iconic artists such as Megadeth, Exodus, Arch Enemy, Testament, Napalm Death, Iced Earth, Nile, Suffocation, Kreator, Soilwork, Overkill, Sepultura, Hatebreed, Nevermore, Dark Tranquillity, Cavelera, Sacred Reich and many more, and found themselves working with industry greats on each new album - creating with producers such as Bill Metoyer (Slayer, D.R.I., Dark Angel), thrash legend Gary Holt (guitarist, Slayer/Exodus), Steve Evetts (Symphony X, DevilDriver, The Dillinger Escape Plan), and Mike Plotnikoff (In Flames, All That Remains, Fear Factory) and cover artwork from legends Dan Seagrave (Morbid Angel, Malevolent Creation, Suffocation) and Andreas Marschall (Blind Guardian, Obituary, Hammerfall). The ever-evolving quintet continues to renovate their potent concept with each passing year, without ever losing focus on the future. Metal Injection said it best, "...the almighty WARBRINGER have proven that they reign eternal... no matter what the circumstances."

Upcoming live show -
May 4, 2024 - The UC Theatre - Berkeley, CA w/ Biohazard, Forbidden, Exciter and more.
