War of Ages – “Alpha”

War of Ages show no signs of letting up in their 8th release, Alpha, which is sure to be a favorite among the metalcore crowd.

By now most even remotely aware of metalcore have at least heard of War of Ages, but just in case, the Erie, PA band was actually formed in 2002 as Point Zero and their first album was under the War of Ages name on Facedown Records imprint Strike First Records in 2005.  Since then, the band has endured a number of lineup changes and produced  seven more studio albums as well as touring with some big names in heavy music, including Battlecross, Soilwork, Throwdown, and As I Lay Dying.  In the past, the band has worked with Zeuss (Hatebreed, Shadows Fall) for recording and engineering on Return to Life (2012), as well as Josh Barber (Norma Jean) and Will Putney (Impending Doom, For Today) on a later album. In keeping with the idea of working with top talent for production and engineering, Alpha was produced and engineered by Jason Suecof at Audiohammer Studios (Trivium, August Burns Red, All That Remains).

I still remember the early days of War of Ages when they were advertised as a hardcore band with guitar solos, a concept that still sounds awesome to me and brings to mind Lights, Camera-era Suicidal Tendencies and some Wisdom in Chains songs.  Of course, War of Ages really doesn’t sound much like that early description unless you equate hardcore with metalcore, but I digress.  Something about those early albums caught my ear and I always picked up the new releases as they came out until Arise and Conquer in 2008, after which I pretty much lost touch of what the band was doing.  Since it has been about nine years, since I really listened to War of Ages, I was really curious as to what I would find on Alpha.
