The band have been around since 2002 and have slowly been building up a pretty decent fan base locally but now it’s time to try their push for an international audience, and what a good way to do it. WARMBLOOD base themselves fully in the old-school death metal style with deep, bellowing vocals, ear grinding guitars and blastbeats straight from the depths of hell itself…
They opened their set with ‘Onward’ on a backing tape with a single spot light on a bass guitar resting in its stand on stage with the back screen showing photos of Chris Squire as a fitting tribute to him.
I have to give some mad props for hearing the man Jon K back on the vocals here as guesting in the tracks “Solar Eclipse” and “Emblem of Light”, it had been a long time since I heard him in singing back in the scene, anybody remember Balance of Power and Biomechanical? Been a while.
