Warbringer Stream New Song “Glorious End”

Warbringer have released another song from their forthcoming album, Weapons of Tomorrow. It’s called “Glorious End.” Unsurprisingly, vocalist John Kevill explains, it’s the last song on WoT:

“‘Glorious End’ is the grand finale of ‘Weapons of Tomorrow,’ and a first-person narrative war epic. The verse is done as a father-son dialogue, in which the son promises the father that he will live up to his ancestor’s legacy of courage, honor, and duty. The song and title have a cruel twist of irony, as the protagonist’s bravery is rendered useless by the horrific new weapons of his time, and he questions the virtues of his father as he dies. 

“This kind of narrative storytelling element is something we feel is pretty unique to Warbringer among thrash metal bands. The music is hard-charging and aggressive, but also somber, grandiose, and well, glorious. The epic side of Warbringer is something we haven’t shared in a single yet, and we thought it was long overdue. Now onwards, brave sons.”

Jam “Glorious End” below! Weapons of Tomorrow comes out April 24 on Napalm. Pre-order it here.
