Following a year highlighted by postponed tours and the tragedy of living through a global pandemic, North Carolina, USA groove metal warriors WoR announced this past June that they recruited new drummer Dylan Jenkins after parting ways with Hunter Crews.
With upcoming performances at Metal In The Mountains on Aug 28th in Pipestem, West Virginia and Blue Ridge Rock Festival on September 11th in Danville, Virginia plus tour dates in October with Battlecross and The Convalescence, the band entered a hunting cabin in the middle of the Appalachian Mountains in Asheville, NC to rehearse their set with new WoR member Jenkins who has put his own spin on some of the older material and injected it with new life.
Perfectly titled “The Asheville Sessions”, the first video from a series of more to be revealed, WoR presents “Hiraeth”, which can be viewed at – https://youtu.be/J-NRDd81lqo
The band comments:
“During the pandemic, we spent a lot of time behind closed doors working on refining our craft. We worked on old music and wrote a bunch of new music. We decided to film one of these sessions, isolated in a hunting cabin in the Appalachian Mountains, away from the chaos of everyday life. Just the 5 of us jamming”.
