Return To Life was recorded with Zeuss at Planet Z Studios [Shadows Fall, Chimaira, Hatebreed], and is the band’s finest accomplishment to date. Return To Life features some of War of Ages‘ most personal material, and continues with their unique brand of Warrior Metal for which the band has become infamous.
From the band: We are extremely excited about our Return To Life release in every way. Musically, we stuck to our roots, brought back the heavy rhythmic style and mixed it with the maturity of having 4 previous albums under our belts. We also joined forces with producer Zeuss who boasts a catalog with names like Terror, Emmure, Hatebreed, etc…Not only is this album instrumentally rhythmic, it is also vocally rhythmic. Leroy stepped out of his comfort zone and ventured into the realms of Rage Against The Machine, Comback Kid, and Darkest Hour, and mixed each with his own style. “I don’t think I broke any new ground vocally or created something new entirely, but it is new for War of Ages and a step in the right direction for me personally.” We plan to continue in this direction lyrically, vocally, and musically for our future albums.
Return To Life will be released on April 24.
War of Ages has toured with As I Lay Dying, Demon Hunter, Soilwork, Norma Jean, Between the Buried and Me, and more, and will be headlining this year’s Facedown Fest on April 7 in Pomona, Ca.
