WAR MASTER United States

WAR MASTER - Immortalized in Sacred Flame


The title above is a very familiar expression, isn`t it? What about one of the iconic BOLT THROWER's albums for example? Correct. As you would expect WAR MASTER from Houston will cut you up into pieces with their old school death metal inspired by classics in the vein of BOLT THROWER.  

This will be one of the dark horses of Obscene Extreme Festival 2016! However, I bet it must have been clear to you right from the start. When ex-members of such bands like INSECT WARFARE or INFERNAL DOMINION meet in a single band… it just cannot end up badly!!!


In 2009, War Master emerged from the smoldering battlefield of the DIY gulf coast grindcore scene in Houston, Texas, taking no prisoners on a mission to reinvent the classic death metal band with every element that heavy metal has to offer. Combining hand-drawn artwork, explosive live shows and a strong sense of underground death metal tradition, founding members of Insect Warfare reunite to terrorize the world all over again. 

Following three sold out pressings of the Chapel Of The Apocalypse demo and a sold-out 7” single, their first full-length album Pyramid Of The Necropolis enters its second pressing just as their newest 12”/CDep Blood Dawn is released in the summer of 2013.  In the aftermath of War Master's 2014 performance at Maryland Death Fest, and extensive tours of the country--including two west coast tours and numerous appearances across the state of Texas--the band has returned to the studio to write their second full length.  

War Master has opened for a slew of national acts such as Hate Eternal, Dying Fetus, Goatwhore, Destroyer 666, Incantation, Master, and Cattle Decapitation as well as playing underground fests Rites of Darkness Festival and Maryland Death Fest. Never deviating from the original protocols of extreme music, War Master continues developing future elements while still honoring death metal’s past to create an altered present. Sever the head that doesn't bang!
