Trench Warfare releasing new split albums

Militant complex war metal band Trench Warfare plans to unleash two new splits, hot on the heels of its three-song EP Perversion Warfare. This shows the band continuing its style of textured riff-frenzy with songs that reach a definite apex and conclusion, in contrast to most of the war metal genre.

The band released the following statement:

Trench Warfare is currently recording three tracks for an upcoming four-way split entitled “Of Vultures and Vermin” which will be available via Surrealistic Fatality Releases (SFR). The other bands featured on the split are Sturmtiger (UK), Formulus (Alabama) and Lugubrious Descent (Florida).

We have also begun writing for a split with Morocco’s Agurzil for which we have enlisted the exceptionally talented drummer Lee Fisher. Lee has performed with Commit Suicide, Psyopus and Overlord Exterminator.

Someone close to the band also leaked three demo tracks from forthcoming Trench Warfare compositions. I traded a brick of Semtex for a dub and was able to hear clearly the progression in this band. Their same unrelenting approach has deepened its texture, with more interplay between riffs, and more fast tremolo riffs in the death metal style. The result is just as hard-hitting but has more internal variation and conflict, leading to a style of war metal that borrows the complexity of death metal, the intensity of grindcore and yet keeps true to its hammering martial assault.

Good things are coming from this promising Texas band, who raised eyebrows with the inscription on their debut EP:

NO MELODIES, NO GROOVES, NO SLAMS, NO BREAKDOWNS
ONLY HATE AND WAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    is it okay to refer to them as the houston trench-trotters from now on?

    I’ll probably check out Trench Warfare, so thanks for the “recommendation”.
    I listened to some Revenge, and while I found the romantic themes appealing, the structures were just really boring. I’m sorry, mate, but that’s just how it was.

    It’s possible that I’m just bad at appreciating music, like my younger self who didn’t like black metal for the same reason (it was “slow and boring”. Yes, I was dumb).
    But even from the beginning, before I really enjoyed black metal, there was some thing about Darkthrone that drove me to them, which I have yet to find in Revenge.

    If Trench Warfare are the same genre as Revenge, but more structurally interesting, then I’ll probably like them.
