Warforged

With the purpose of transcending genre norms and limitations through storytelling and marvelously dramatic song composition came the formation of Warforged. The five-piece death metal act utilizes menacing guitar work, eerie acoustic textures, massive walls of dissonance, and crushing drums to weave a horrifyingly beautiful ambience that fans of any genre or dark musical expression can connect with. Cinematic in scope - everlasting in vision and concept: behind the noise, Warforged maintains a firm grasp on professional work ethic and will continue to build lasting relationships with their fans.

Wait A Minute! This Isn't Metal! - May 2019

We here at Metal Storm pride ourselves on our thousands of metal reviews and interviews and article; metal is our collective soul and passion, which is why we bother with this junk.

This article series is the place for those artists who don't matter to metal in the slightest (more or less) but still warrant some conversation - after all, good music, is good music, and we all know metal isn't the only thing on this planet for any of us.
