I don’t know about you but I freakin’ love the Arizona thrashers Warhead! The band’s 2013 debut, Death Row was a solid piece of old-school thrash that featured plenty of awesome riffs and blazing solos. Since the release of Death Row, Warhead has managed to build a pretty good following and has even gone on to tour the West Coast of the United States captivating audiences every night with a live show that can only be described as chaotic. Currently Warhead are in writing mode as the band gears up for a vinyl split with Seattle metallers Rat King and a brand new EP, both of which are expected to be released later this year.
Earlier this year, way back in January, Warhead released a ripping new track entitled Widowmaker. For some reason the track just appeared on my radar now and as soon as it did, I knew I had to share it with you.
Featuring a neck-snapping main riff throughout, Widowmaker is pure ’80s thrash right down to the bone. Throw in a few tasty solos and sprinkle in some gang vocals and you have yourself a ripping track that may very well be Warhead’s best song to date.
