ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Fantastic Melodic Power/Thrash Metal debut, this Killer Canadian Metal band has out done themselves, this is destined to be at the top of everyones ( What is New thats HOT list) Canada’s Warmachine makes aggressive, melodic metal in the vein of Eighties arena rockers. That may have something to do with the influence of producer Murray Daigle, who fronts the impressive Dokken-eseque Canadian band Emerald Rain. (Daigle also contributes vocals on Empty.) These 11 tracks unleash a huge can of whup-ass. Of course, it helps having ex-Megadeth bassist David Ellefson play on three tracks (Betrayed, Empty and Taunted Souls) and Iced Earth/Millenium guitarist Ralph Santolla shred on another (Forgotten Demise), and Harry Hess (Eternally) and Darren Smith (Eye For an Eye) sing their guts out and help Warmachine sound like Harem Scarem on roids '" complete with rousing choruses and melodies that will sear your brain.

The Beginning Of The End- is an infectious release, showing distinctive riffs,timeless solos, basted in a broth tasting of the likes of such giants as MEGADETH, METALLICA, IRON MAIDEN, and JUDAS PRIEST yet a sound all that is their own! With this KILLER debut, they aredestined to herald themselves as one of Canadas most respected true metal bands.

Guest Bass and Co Produced by Legendary bassist David Ellefson...

REVIEW....from PROGRESSIVEWORLD.NET
Canadian band Warmachine is proof-positive that the metal scene will continue to flourish for years to come because their brand of heavy metal is inspiring, dedicated, raw, and honest......

Fundamentally, Warmachine is a melodic Metallica, but even that most basic description does the band a huge disservice because Warmachine is so much more....

Lyrically, Warmachine expunge all others with intriguing personal dilemmas that are reminiscent of old-school bands like Metallica and Megadeth. Lyricist and vocalist Joe Di Taranto epitomises some of the most intense and melodic lyrics since James Hetfield, and his voice, whilst a little rough around the edges, is more than made up for by the passion in his voice. Comparisons would be Zak Stevens (ex-Savatage), Tom Englund (Evergrey), Dave Mustaine (Megadeth), and Mat Barlow (Iced Earth). For the most, the lyrics are very angst ridden, and, whilst clichéd at times, are totally believable and work very well in the bands favour. Rating: 8/10

FROM BWBK
This Toronto band is upholding the flame for passionate, melodic traditional metal heavier than power metal, sort of in the Megadeth/Metallica zone. They are young, professional and blessed with great guitar licks, twin leads, groove and vocal melodies.

FROM THE METAL OBSERVER
9 points, fully deservedly, if I may add. Now the 1994-founded band from Toronto has recorded its debut with "The Beginning Of The End" and could win a whole load of quite well-known musicians as guests, among them MEGADETH bassist Dave Ellefson, ICED EARTH guitarist Ralph Santolla and HAREM SCAREM singer Harry Hess, plus EMERALD RAIN's Murray Daigle as producer and once also guest vocalist.

So what is this "phenomenon" WARMACHINE? Well, the style that they have chosen for themselves is very traditional, pure Heavy Metal, which, though, never sounds old-fashioned, but without taking up any modern elements sounds up-to-date, as if their sound was something brand spanking new. So the quartet does not exactly explore new territories, so here the excellent song writing come into play, which lets potentially lacking originality completely step into the background!

Led by Joe DiTaranto's excellent voice, which is a nice difference to many of his colleagues, the quartet delivers a very compact album, which keeps the tension up over the whole 44 minutes, not showing any weaknesses. Opener "Betrayed", for example, is marked by quite heavy riffing, complemented by great melodies, culminating in a super catchy chorus, if that does not capture the genre fan right away, well, then you are not a fan, quite frankly!

We already know "Beginning Of The End" from the demo, super melodic, followed by "Safe Haven" with fat double-bass and heavy guitars, yet always putting enough emphasis on good and mature melodies. "Eternally" reminds me a lot of ICED EARTH, from the guitars at the beginning over the riffing to the vocal harmonies, without sounding like a copy, while "Taunted Souls" accelerates a lot, which the band also masters very well.

The production is up-to-date, but not modern, traditional, but not out-dated, the songs very good, but not, eh, they are just damn good, this is how modern tradition is supposed to sound,

FROM SEA OF TRANQUILITY
Canada's Warmachine makes aggressive, melodic metal in the vein of Eighties arena rockers. That may have something to do with the influence of producer Murray Daigle, who fronts the impressive Dokken-eseque Canadian band Emerald Rain. (Daigle also contributes vocals on "Empty.") These 11 tracks unleash a huge can of whup-ass. Of course, it helps having ex-Megadeth bassist David Ellefson play on three tracks ("Betrayed," "Empty" and "Taunted Souls") and erstwhile Iced Earth/Millenium guitarist Ralph Santolla shred on another ("Forgotten Demise"). But who makes a metal album these days with help from Harem Scarem, an aging melodic hard rock band that always seemed hesitant to get too heavy, lest the group isolate itself from its cult following? But here, Harry Hess ("Eternally") and Darren Smith ("Eye For an Eye") sing their guts out and help Warmachine sound like Harem Scarem on 'roids - complete with rousing choruses and melodies that'll sear your brain.

Paul Jennings

Makes me proud to be Canadian!!!
WOW!!! This CD is one of the strongest I've heard in a long while. I buy about 10 - 12 CD's a month and this one has all the right stuff. THE BEGINNING OF THE END is very heavy, but it also is incredibly melodic. Virtually every song has a uniqueness that grabs you as you listen. Look out metal world, here comes Warmachine!!!

Vladimir

High class power / progressive metal
Awesome progressive / power metal played with style. Ultra melodic guitar leads, tasty solos, catchy choruses, memorable songs, charming vocals, powerful rhythm section and clear but warm production makes this CD simply a must!

Elvis K.

Buy or Die!!
I know the band since their demo-days and love them. Their music is incredible. Both, powerful and progressive, with a great voice, heavy and melodic riffs and lyrics that touch your soul. If you don't buy this album you are no Metal-Head!! Buy or die!!!
I am looking forward to hear the new songs...

Sochesco Joe

A must hear disc! You'll be hooked!
Unbelievable this is a DEBUT! Everything: musicianship, composition, orchestration, timing, seemless tempo changes, vocal range, all spot on. "Safe Haven" will be the break out hit. Only, repeat only criticism: doom & gloom lyrics. With all the obvious talent Di Taranto & crew display, I see no reason to be so negative. Besides, the positive energy and passion of the music belies the words.

Bob

Warmachine CD found its way to Sweden!
I must write that I VERY much enjoyed the CD. It really stuck to me, and this after having listened to it only after a couple of times. I listen to a lot of Power Metal and Progressive, and can only state that I am happy I bought this CD
