Bandcamp | BigCartel | Facebook | ReverbNation

Formed back in 2013, US-based thrashers War Curse plan to tear the metal world a new one with their debut outing Final Days. Bringing together a mixture of old-school war-themed action along the lines of Slayer, Kreator, and especially Testament, their debut outing Final Days has been picked up by Static Tension Records for a proper 2016 release on cassette to compliment the digital version now available through the group’s Bandcamp account. But, thanks to the awesome folk at Static Tension and Dewar PR, is proud to present “Severed Crosses”, the third track off this infectious first attempt!

Like what you hear? Then head on over to Static Tension Records at THIS LOCATION to place your pre-order of Final Days on cassette, which will be released on January 22nd, 2016. For non-analog format fanatics, you can pick this album up through the group’s Bandcamp account now, as well as on iTunes and other major digital distribution sites.

Dewar PR had this to say about the band and their history:
War Curse was formed in late 2013 by guitarists Justin Roth and Joshua Murphy, and drummer James Goetz. In 2014 the decision to pursue the project led to the recruitment of vocalist Tarek Puska, and a bassist named Death Metal Doug (who wasn’t to last long). Two bassists later, Eric Payne completes the line up and War Curse is melting faces around the Midwest, sharing the stage with notable bands like Raven, Viking, Unleash the Archers, and many more. Listening to War Curse’s debut EP “Final Days” reveals influences from early thrash metal icons Exodus and Testament, heavy metal titans Metallica and Megadeth, and draws subtle inspiration from the band’s love of punk rock. War Curse has been called thrash enough for the thrash heads and heavy metal enough for the guys who grew up listening to Iron Maiden. With no plans on slowing down, War Curse will be heading back into the studio in early 2016 to record a follow up to “Final Days”, hoping to showcase their evolution as a band and songwriters.
