Trench Warfare Prepares Split Album Paths to Victorious Perversion

Necrotic war metal band Trench Warfare recorded four songs in late 2016 for appearance on a future split with Goatdusias and Bestial Karnage entitled Paths to Victorious Perversion. The band recruited drummer Lee Fisher (Commit Suicide, Psyopus, Overlord Exterminator) to record percussion for the upcoming release. Titles on the album include “Twisted Lies of a Wretched Pedophile,” “Astral Projection into the Shapeless Abysmal Void” and “Hatred Prayer.”

Death Metal Underground reviewed Trench Warfare back in 2015 and thoroughly endorsed the no-holds-barred raging metal attack. The band describes themselves as follows:

The Midland, Texas-based musicians are heavily influenced by bestial black metal, Florida death metal and war metal. Their music is a declaration of war, an unforgiving expression of pure anger and malevolence. Their intent is clear, the impact is instantaneous. Trench Warfare is a modern take on Ross Bay Cult madness, staying true to the blasphemous formula yet pushing the envelope of extremity with each drop of blood they spill in the trenches.

Their music, stripped down and focused, takes the intensity of grindcore and applies it to a primitive black metal model. The result is abrasive and energetic, upholding the violent mastery implied by underground metal alongside the intensity of early hardcore. Trench Warfare will be most appealing to fans of Blasphemy, Conqueror, Revenge, Angelcorpse, Sarcofago, Deicide, Morbid Angel, Proclamation, Teitanblood, Bestial Warlust, Deiphago, Diocletian, Obituary, Possessed, Bathory and Beherit.

    Sweet! Looking forward to it!

  2. I want to like this band. Hopefully they’re good. I’m about to listen.

  3. >proclamation, teitanblood, bestial warlust, deiphago

    Lost interest right there. Would be cool to see some blacks be role models for the youngsters like Suffocation back in the day but I don’t think this is even close to being good

    1. Morbideathscream says:

      Blasphemy, Mystifier and early suffocation are examples of pretty damn good bands that happen to have a Negro or 2 in their ranks. Gotta give credit where credit is due. Maybe Trench Warfare can join that list, time will tell. Doesn’t change the fact 99.9% of negroes are scum that act like Michael Brown and Trayvon Martin.

      Unless you’re one of those dudes that think all war metal sucks, I suggest checking out Blasphemaphagher, a very good modern day interpretation of Blasphemy and is superior to the 4 bands you quoted. It’s not mindless blasting like Conqueror or black witchery. Check out their first album Nuclear Empire of Apocalypse.

    Do you think grim kim is gonna try to hit it?

  5. Marc Defranco says:

    After some time I rarely find myself returning to bands like this and when I do I tend to stick to Blasphemy and Bestial Warlust, and always Beherit. I have been preferring bands that can create a well constructed song. Bands like this tend to just have a certain sound and speed I’m looking for at the time.

  6. Rainer Weikusat says:

    The vocals are much too dominant, giving this a hip-hoppy feeling at times. And the (machine) drumming is positively lame, almost sleepy in its backgroundedness. The first and third tracks suffer from the typical “bestial black war death metal” disease of aimless chromatic(?) wandering: Chord sequences (I refuste to call this progressions) are repeated in order to repeat them and the overall intent seems to be to create an insect-like buzzing. The second track is somewhat more interesting in this respect but I nevertheless wouldn’t want this guy shouting at me all the time.

    The imagery (»spill blood in trenches«) is silly and out of place: Trench warriors wouldn’t be as obviously well-nourished and they certainly wouldn’t use 40mm gun grenades as nobody could operate such a device in a trench. Rather hand grenades and nice “unversially useful tools” like

    1. they certainly wouldn’t use 40mm gun grenades as nobody could operate such a device in a trench

      I think you may want to reconsider this. Trenches contained gun emplacements. Soldiers were using machine guns not much smaller than that crazy looking thing at the time. Not to mention that, to use it, you fire it up in the air and rain grenades down on troops from above in an arc, creating a shrapnel bath.

        This looks like H&K GMG, a portable 40mm belt-fed automatic grenade launcher. Someone might use that while defending a trench, similar to WWI heavy machine gun (eg, MG08) but certainly not when fighting in a trench.
        Even full-sized infantry rifles are too cumbersome for close-quarters combat. That’s why all these ‘modern’ submachine-gun/ rifle hybrids (aka assault rifles) came to be used.

        1. Yes, but the term “trench warfare” refers to the uses of trenches in warfare, where most of the fighting took place outside of the trenches. In fact, if the bad guys made it to your trench, you had kind of failed; the whole point of trenches was to hold terrain (as arguably is the point of all military activity). Thus it works with the name. Also keep in mind that those wonderful submachine guns (like the MP44 or MP5) have a salient advantage: if all fighting is at close range, why carry big heavy bullets when small ones will do as well?

    2. Vigilance says:

      Glenn Benton raps on legion so you shouldn’t complain.

  7. Rainer Weikusat says:

    Something I’m going to write exactly once (already embarrassing enough): Musical differences notwithstanding, any of this is greatly appreciated.

  8. OliveFox says:

    This article is not about politics!! What kind of phony Death Metal site are you guys runnin’ here?

  9. Nathan Metric says:

    This looks promising. This not so aimless take on war metal fills you with dread. Doesn’t quite touch my heart the way Conqueror or Sarcofago did, but this is far more serious than Conqueror was. And way better sound quality too. This band does justice to war metal.

  10. It’s good work out music, at the very least.

      1. OliveFox says:

        *whack off

  11. all war metal sucks. even 3 inches of blood purvey the spirit of warfare better than all these faggot pigfucker bands. hey man check out my war metal album, i decided i wanted it to sound like my canadian girlfriend’s skin tastes after she gets done working on oil rigs, and maybe if we go big playing this totally boring style where we write three new riffs in our whole careers i can get with more fat dysfunctional metal chicks with cow tits melting over their fat fucking guts obscuring their groin acne because we’re primitive man, shit yes i’ll fuck a tranny, i’ll fuck a dog, I’LL FUCK ANYTHING THAT MOOVES *SOUND OF BULL GETTING RAPED*

    1. Hygiene Gentleman says:

      That’s sick man. Your crazy…

      1. Hey man, that’s not cool. You should respect other people’s paths to victorious perversion.

        1. Allatori Allegories says:

          That was lost in translation, I meant it as a compliment


    low budget pizza metal, finna unleash my victorious perversion all over this fast food ish homie.

    p.s. he’s in probably the ugliest interracial pairing i’ve seen since i watched a hungarian foot fetishist do leanne mendoza

    This is real war metal:

      Poser, this is the real, real war metal

      1. Vigilance says:

        There is no fucking bottom to Memphis tapes is there?

  14. Morbideathscream says:

    Blasphemaphagher from Italy is the best modern bestial war metal band.

  15. Can you survive the blitzkrieg says:

    War metal is gay and faggy, it is an underground fad.
